You need at least one full afternoon to walk through the entire collection, from medieval knights to World War I diorama. Most of the information labels are in Portuguese, with only a scattering of labels in English. The place is dark and as no flash...More

The building is gorgeous outside as well as inside and the collection is decent. However it was so poorly lit that in some halls I couldn't see or read anything. Also a lot of the artwork lacked plaques and most of the plaques were only...More

OK, not expensive but not enough about Wellingtan and his Portugal campaign. We were chased around by a security guard as we thought they were letting is in for free but the fee was 3 euros each, so not worth having a battle!!

We visited this museum by accident, because we were in the area. The price of admission (3 €) made us think of a small museum, but what a surprise! The exhibition is quite diverse, but what struck me the most was the building in which...More

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants

spectacular option for those looking for a more
