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
Another rainy day in Lisbon saw us visit this great museum. Take tram 15 and get off at Belem, walk towards the river across the overpass and you will see a large building to the right. It is now also the MAAT (Museum of Art,...More

Visited this museum on a rainy day I'm Lisbon. We had our 4 year old with us. There was an educational kids activity area which she enjoyed very much. The museum itself is very well done. The facilities are good - lockers, bathrooms etc.
This museum is located close to the train station in Belem and admission is free. The building contains the machinery that created electricity for the city of Lisbon. There is a lot to see in this museum and it is especially interesting if one has...More
It is a spectacular presentation. All the old power plant equipment is intact and shiny. There are many displays and exhibits about the history and operation of the plant. I kept looking for the steam turbines, no, there was a piston to power the generators!...More

Perfect for a couple of hours. Teaches the kids about electricity and generating electricity through interactive stations. Free entry and on the river. We walked along the river, took a break here, then continued our walk. Great way to break up the day.
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.
