This recent museum is the memory of the history of Portugal when we rulled the seas and traveled to the orient. A must see in Lisbon.

A pleasant surprise set a bit outside the centre in the docklands area. Not far from the San Francisco-esque bridge and easily accessible by the number 15 tram, this modern museum tracks the history of the links between Portugal and the Far East. Nicely annotated...More

Very good museum with plenty of interesting artifacts. Seniors get a discount. You will find the museum on the same coast road as the Belem Tower.

This is such a great museum. Great design. Great exhibitions. We went there in July and it was almost empty. Just a bus or taxi ride from the center. Highly recommended. Gives you some great insights about the history of the region.
