  • This museum is situated next to Lisbon Cathedral, represents a historical summary of a place filled with black pages of history of Portugal, for the memory never goes out.

  • A history that remains largely un taught in Britain. A shockingly oppressive regime that had all the brutality and suppression of Franco and the East German state. That it existed so long in Europe is...  more »
  • I can't believe there were not more people here, covering a really important time in Portugal's history, excellent displays, kept the interest of our teenagers. Highly highly recommended.  more »

  • Incredibly interesting, well presented. Don't miss it.
  • Very informative museum! We stumbled upon this museum on accident. As we both knew that there was a dictatorshop in Portugal for a few decades, but that was about it, we decided to take a look. And we where stunned about the quality of the museum and what you could learn. Free entry for students too!
  • Amazing gem of a FREE museum tucked in the Alfama district. Exhibitions are well developed and clear with clear explanations into this time in Portugal's history. They need a better gift shop because I would have bought SO MUCH things.
  • A most important place to visit, lots of food for thought, one of the best places I visited on my stay.
  • Excellent free admission museum that describes 48 y of Portugese dicatorship, from 1926 to 1974, including clandestine opposition and suppression by corrupt politicians and secret police. Video clips has English subtiles. Everything is translated into English.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
