  • A trip to the past amazing stories of every weapon of war, and the soldiers who were present are keen to be part of the plot, detailing the stories. After passing at the flea market this is a great option.

  • Very big and very impressive military museum. A LOT to see. If you love history, this is a must see.
  • What a great place! If you're interested in military history or not it is a must!
  • Interesting museum, especially artillery of renaissance. Would need more descriptions in English
  • They got a decent collection of medieval weapons, got a lot of cannons, Napoleonic and WW1 section was good too. Excellent place for those who love the history of warfare.
  • Well worth a visit for anyone interested in military or general history. Housed in superbly decorated building. Underrated on Lisbon's to do list I feel. Could do with more information for the non Portuguese speaker in parts.

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.
