The positive is that you are issued with a headset and can walk through the exhibition and listen to the commentary as you are walking, and according to the lady at the desk the headset works automatically on GPS so the commentary starts automatically wherever...More

The only attraction that make you understand the history of Lisboa. Well designed and fast. Should be tour first attraction. Free with the Lisboa card.

Not sure why this place rates so highly. It’s quite small and features very little in the way of artefacts or visuals. It relies heavily on the audio guide, which is horribly scripted. Skipping is not an option tho do you are forced to listen...More

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
