    Fancied some me time, came upon this accidentally and loved both the venue and tiles. Not expensive and worth a visit. There’s also a cafe and gift shop.

    This is a brand new and very large art museum with all the contemporary artists you know and lots of masterpieces. Large and beautiful display space, never feels crowded. Beautiful garden with sculpture and views of Belem. Good food venues.

    This is a brilliant museum. There is something for everyone in here. It is well spread out and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The highlight for me was the Bosch painting; but there are so many wonderful things to see.

    This museum tells the story of what people who were against the dictatorship had to endure. There is a lot of text to read, but you will get a good impression. They even reconstructed the jails they had to survive in.

    This museum has a lot of extensive research on the formation of Benfica and how the club developed overtime.

    Loved the part that accompanied history in the world with the club itself. Giving it a more concrete place in history.

    A few interactive fun moments in the museum as well.

    What was missing for me was the club in the last 20 years. Not a lot of “recent” information.

    At the historical "Baixa Pombalina" and not far from "Praça do Comércio", you will find "Casa dos Bicos". This 16th century construction was inspired by the "Palazzo dei Diamanti", a palace in Ferrara (Italy), and combines characteristics of the Renaissance style (the spikes on its façade) with Manueline windows and door frames. On its lower levels, a set of structures with ruins of Roman tanks (intended for salting and preserving fish), of the defensive "Fernandine Walls" built by King Dom Fernando I around the 14th century (and almost completely destroyed by Lisbon's 1755 earthquake) and of the old Moorish fence. Since 2012, "Casa dos Bicos" houses the "Fundação José Saramago", a museum with a permanent exhibition - "A semente e os frutos" - dedicated to honor the memory and the legacy of the brilliant writer and Nobel Prize Winner. Enjoy!

    Without doubt one of the finest tram, bus and metro museums in the world. Housed in a real working tram depot and underneath the span of the 25th April Bridge, the setting couldn't be better. Excellent displays and exhibits, friendly staff and a heritage tram ride thrown in for free!!!

    The carriages are very interesting and there is a lot of history behind them. Great to fill a couple of hours on a rainy day. Very reasonable price as well. We all really enjoyed this museum.

    Well preserved heritage and a cathedral to engineering - excellent museum, well worth visiting after a custard tart at Pasteis de Belem!

    I love all types of music and was interested to learn more about Portugal's iconic fado performers. The museum displays feature an eclectic collection of instruments, paintings, posters and programs, and other items. Visitors can also watch short informative videos and listen to recorded performances of various fado artists. A visit to the museum would be great preparation for going to see a live fado show.

    Random random random. Felt like I was tripping the whole way round. Not what I expected. Quirky neon modern art installations. Not suitable if epileptic. Interesting info about the power station. If you are very into quirky modern art and a deep thinker you'll probably like it!

    Certainly one of the most unusual visitor attractions in Lisbon.
    It’s a museum and a workshop for the repair of dolls of every kind.
    Nice history and a lot of toys from old times to see.
    A lovely guided tour (in English or Portuguese) that costs 2€ per person.
    Truly a unique place in Lisbon. Bring your camera!

    Was looking for something unique for our trip and made plans to visit. Surprised at how much two adults, no children, could enjoy a puppet museum. Still have good memories.
