If you come to Lisbon, you should visit this place. It is worth a visit! It has a large collection of pieces from China, Macau, Japan, Goa and former Portuguese India, East Timor, and so on.

The museum displays asian artifacts collected from mostly former Portugese colonies in the orient. Most interesting were the maps showing how much territory the Portugese held during the 15th - 18th centuries. Had an interesting collection of crucifixes, probably for export. Top floor had a...More

Travel in to the times of the Portuguese adventures in this place - the culture and tradition of the Orient in the capital. If you have time, visit in the roof the buffet restaurant, with nice view to the pier, bridge, river and other side.

The permanent exhibit is devoted to the Portuguese legacy in the Far East, so you will learn a lot about the old colonies and see some rare objects. We also saw a very good temporary expo on Chinese opera. We had the whole place to...More

I felt that if this is what you are interested in, then its a great museum. The displays were well presented, and good lighting. The descriptions on the wall were all a large enough print that could read from a reasonable distance.

Had a private tour for an after hours event. I really enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared information on the relationship between the Orient and Portugal. If you're looking for history just on the orient, this will not be for you. Not...More
