This is a surprisingly nice museum. I love museums but the army and military stuff is not my thing usually. I was prepared to be bored. However, the architecture in the rooms is phenomenal. Unbelievably beautiful paintings and plasterwork. The paintings are amazing! My husband...More

This place is a hidden gem, full of very rare armour, uniforms, guns, cannons, etc. It has a very old world museum look and feel about it, but in some ways this just adds to the aura of the place. I could not believe how...More

the Museum National Military of Lisbon is located on Largo do Museu da Artiharia opposite to the train station. Entrance fee to this museum is necessary but considered worthwhile because of the exhibits inside are interesting and abundant.

I decided to take a walk along the Avenida Infante Don Henrique to visit this museum. As it’s right beside the Santa Apolonia station, metro, bus and tram stops it’s easy to get there from just about anywhere in the city. I arrived shortly after...More

Indeed a hidden gem apart from the mainstream, but you should know some bits of Portuguese history otherwise you'll be lost. Explanations are rare and there are no links to any historical context.

If you are staying in Lisbon don't miss this excellent museum which is set in a beautiful building with amazing frescoes and a wonderful vaulted cellar. The blue tiles depicting historic battles in the courtyard are well worth the 3 Euro entrance fee alone but...More

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
spectacular option for those looking for a more
