We visited inadvertadly as we decided to skip the lines for the monastery by purchasing the combo ticket for the museum and the monastery. Top tip by the way, we queued for about 5 minutes and you get to go straight into the monastery!
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
Purchased the combined ticket to visit the basilica also. Love archaeology and history but I would give the place a miss unless you are bored and have time to burn as it's so very small and you have seen the small exhibitions in under an...More
Went with my 14 month old. For a European museum it was not expensive and had a good selection of exhibits. The temporary exhibit was well curated and there was a variety of languages in descriptions. They even had some exhibits you could touch which...More
This museum is about a 15 minute walk from the Belem Tower so you can see both on the same day.
The collection of artifacts is really great! Very interesting things.
I'm only giving this review 3 star because I felt that the modern barriers...More
We bought a Lisboa card so a visit to the museum was free. It's not very big but has a nice modren exhibition on a region in the Algarve with English explanations. There's also a smaller room, permanent collection I think, called the treasure room....More
A very small museum located in a wing of the Jeronimos Monastery. It's worth seeing and has artefacts from the Egyptian era and also lots of Roman exhibits. There is also a treasury room with examples of early jewellery from the Iron and Bronze ages....More
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
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.
