  • Very well equipped hotel with two floors of permanent exhibition on the Portuguese colonialism in East and Chinese opera and some temporary exhibitions. Free on Friday from 18 to 22, almost deserted. Easily accessible by tram 15 is close to the port and the Council to reach that area after the tour, for a nice dinner with sea view.

  • It was one of the few museums that I was visiting in Lisbon. I really liked the temporary exhibitions that were present, as well as the museum itself.

  • Had a private tour for an after hours event. I really enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared information on the relationship between the Orient and Portugal. If you're looking for his...  more »

  • First of all, Amazing view from the windows, out over the Rio Tejo !! And the brunch selection is so good. Hot, cold, snack, traditional, dessert and candy for the kids. Definitely a place i'm visiting again.
  • I was excited to visit the museum, but am very disappointed after my visit. The audio guide does not work properly and the information given is poor. The exposition itelf has some interesting objects, but the there is a huge lack of structured information, just a lot of dry facts, but very little context and story. Boring. The description of the objects is hard to find and often times not well lit. I regret having spent 6 Euro for this. Learned very little.
  • Great exibition. It changes every few years so each time one can see new things.
  • Very modern museum, good restaurant and good exhibits.
  • I only went to the brunch. Very good buffet menu, but way too crowded. There were over 100 people serving from the same buffet table, which made people less polite when moving around. The pricing is ok, but the management team shouldn't allow so many people. Thus only 3 starts.

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.
