Note that you have to place your bag into a locker before going into the exhibits - it's a 1 Euro locker, and you get the Euro back at the end. I found this convenience since i was carrying a bag and jacket and leave...More

The museum is located in the Belém area, close to other sights, which is very fortunate when time is a constraint. However, I found it a bit dull and too small.

This is a museum with rooms of good exhibits. But there is one room which is truly stunning. As you enter the room you go through airport style security - pockets emptied, body scanner, etc. Why? Because the room is devoted to Iron Age jewellery...More
