All reviews power station power plant great building modern art interesting museum machinery equipment technology plants exhibits technical portuguese explanation restoration commissioned galleries structure
It seems to be in the past.
It’s a real trip in a real place.
This was the centre where all Lisbon’s electricity was made.
Very very real.
There’s a recreative area to make simple experiments, also proper for kids.
The coal-fired power station was awesome! You can walk through the inside of the burner, and explore all (!) parts of the power station. Also it is in a very good state and the building looks very nice. The explanation film is unfortunately not at...More
I was overwhelmed by the quality of the restoration of the boilers, pumps, generators, and whole building structure. Knowing how dirty a functioning power plant can be, it must have been an enormorous task for the restorers to clean, paint, shine, and color code the...More
Attracted by the twin offering of a tour of a decommissioned power station, and a modern art installation we dashed in - our main mistake. You need time to appreciate the detailed effort which has gone into making the huge items of machinery and their...More
Just playing with words. This is a fascinating location with an interesting history of how this station powered Lisbon. They have preserved large portions of the original mechanisms and give thorough technical explanations and historical facts. We were fortunate to be invited to an event...More
The building of former power plant is spectacular. It feels almost as temple of technology. The museum is very interesting. One could divide it in two parts: one is dedicated to the power station, the other - to technology in general, mostly to energy-related physics....More
This museum was excellent. It excelled in explaining the entire electricity generation process in a engaging and entertaining way that everyone could understand. It is housed in a decommissioned power station and in addition , has galleries dedicated to modern art and robotics.
This museum combines technology and modern art exhibits in two separate buildings. The modern art includes some very inventive, funny and interesting pieces. The technology exhibits are placed in an equally fascinating former electricity power station.
A really good museum set in an old coal power station with most of the equipment dating from the early part of the 20th century. The scale of the furnaces, boilers and generators is impressive and you get an idea how labor intensive it must...More
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and
delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
