  • This museum is about a 15 minute walk from the Belem Tower so you can see both on the same day. The collection of artifacts is really great! Very interesting things. I'm only giving this review 3 star...  more »
  • When you visit the Monasteiro dos Jeronimos, agrees to visit this small museum: as another reviewer has already pointed out, it is cheaper to buy the entrance ticket to the Monastery at the ticket office of the archaeological museum because there is hardly any people and will prevent the tail. This is a small museum which is well maintained and preserves interesting finds Egyptian, Roman and Portuguese periods.

  • We bought a Lisboa card so a visit to the museum was free. It's not very big but has a nice modren exhibition on a region in the Algarve with English explanations. There's also a smaller room, permane...  more »

  • I really enjoyed my short time within the museum. All the artifacts were really interesting. The treasure section with all the gold and silver was my favourite. Great day out including the monastery.
  • Excellent dislays and interactive video for deeper presentation. The right amount of artifacts and info to excite, inform and stimulate without overload
  • Was a nice museum considering the Lisboa card covered it. There were some mummies sarcophagi pretty interesting. And also all the other Egipt stuff.
  • Interesting little museum, probably wouldn't ever visit on its own but only an extra €2 when visiting the monastery. You can but the tickets as a package for only €12
  • We saw jeronimoes monastery, the museum or archeology, and the tower of Belem with a ticket we bought at the museum of archeology. Pro tip, skip the very long line at the monastery by buying this package from the museum next door. Nearby, you can buy pastel de Nata from the famous Belem bakery. You'll want to eat them right away, they get soft if you leave them in the packaging. I bought this ticket only to skip the line at the monastery next door, but for the couple extra euro, it was an interesting spot. Only takes a few minutes to go through, but the exit leads right to the head of the line at the monastery next door.

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.
