  • Visit this museum is important for understanding this Portuguese art and to understand their history. Engrossing in every work, the most beautiful and famous sits at the end of the path with the overview of many meters of old Lisbon. There is also a restaurant to eat and drink in relax

  • The Museum is small, but for those who like that sort of thing, it's cool. Has some tiles and it is, but as is included in the price of a ticket that includes three other museums, it's worth checking out.

  • Site with some very small tiles with 2 rooms my expectation was higher. ... But you will spend at most 15 minutes

  • Museo del Azulejo. Amazing 17th Century building.If you are interested in the materials used in this town’s amazing building, then this museum might be more meaningful for that rather than what’s housed inside. This stone house is still standing after centuries. Built in the last of 17th century.However, inside there is a small display of beautifully designed tiles displayed on boards but with little or no explanation. Even though we knew some of the tiles were the oldest in Uruguay we were less than impressed. In and out in under 10 minutes. ***
  • It is a nice small museum.
