My regret is you will have it to yourselves. Like the Asia society, NYC has a pan Asian e pensive ship. A nice cafe. Beautiful work on view

Portugal was the first western country into the Orient, over five hundred years ago when a ships captain helped out by ridding the Indian ocean of pirates.the must is full of art, furniture, armour and life. A definite must! Located right on the Tagus Rver.

... but i have expected a little bit more. It's not that it was not good, it's only that it was a bit all put together. And was not told through a portugals eyes which i have expected.

This museum is placed by the Tagus river. Is has a beautiful colection based in the various palces of the far East where portuguese people have been. In the top floor there is a very nice restaurant with a great view over the river.

An interesting museum with a good mix of objects from different parts of Asia. The permanent exhibition on the Portuguese presence in Asia was particularly informative. The temporary display of posters of political propaganda was also enlightening.

We really appreciated the museum's moderate size. Many museums boast about their extensive collections, but often this can make you tired. At museums of this high quality, you usually have a hard time choosing only some of the exhibitions so to see everything in a big museum, you tend to need several hours. At Museu do Oriente this was not a problem. Normally, the museum has three or four exhibitions but at the time of our visit, one was being replaced. OK, this was a minor disappointment, but it also gave us time to enjoy the other exhibitions more. We needed about 1,5 hours for our visit and took it really slow.

The building is stunning. Worth to see for itself! Locationwise, since Museu do Oriente is in Alcântara, close to Belém, a tip is to walk alongside the water to Belém and it's sights for lunch/dinner after your visit. This walk takes around 15-30 min.

Entrance was 5€, well worth the money.
