  • Visit this Museum, years ago, when the universal exhibition in Lisbon, 1998. Recently, by the good memory of that visit, return to, and although in second time, went back to discover many items on last visit overlooked. It is an old-fashioned, none of those digitized modern museums Museum. It is worth your visit. It has a bar on the ground floor, next to exit partly outside of building. It does not usually lovers of military history. P.S. visit the museo Naval in Bethlehem. A greeting

  • I am on vacation in Lisbon family so we decide to visit on the first Sunday of the month (free) the Museum of M.M. Portuguese. Well groomed, neat and full of relics that tell the adventures and battles of a Navy that once conquered half the world. Lovely in every way. I recommend it for families

  • The oldest Lisbon Museum worth a visit and time consuming. I say it's "two in one" because, in addition to a broad, interesting, and well exposed military collection, the frescoes, gilded carvings and tiles that decorate the 26 rooms in itself already constitute a surprising Museum. It should be noted that the Museum has one of the largest and best spoils of bronze cannons, and that contains tables of some of the great Portuguese painters

  • Fantastic Museum, beautiful building and the 3 Euro entrance fee is probably the best value for money I've ever got at any museum. I'd like to see a few more English translations on the exhibits as some really interesting ones have nothing at all or are only in Portuguese. However I got chatting to a serving Portuguese soldier on duty at the museum and he explained a lot about it to me.
  • This very discrete museum, normally out of tourist circuits, filled with Portugal military history, entangled with the ages of discovery. Beautifully decorated rooms, with walls covered in historic figures. Great value!
  • GO HERE. I am not a history or military buff, but was blown away by the sheer size and opulence of the rooms of this museum, and the collection of weaponry etc. What's more, we literally had the place to ourselves. I would have paid five times the price (€3) to see it! Don't hesitate, just go :)
  • Big and breathtaking collection. Many exhibits had a description only in Portuguese. Quite a small number of visitors (in the middle of the week).
  • Nice place to spend time, old fashioned rooms with gold and old paintings. A lot of military staff from every ages, not every of them described also in english. Ticket 3 Euro. Nothing for actionaddicts.
