This might be a great attraction but we did not really have an opportunity to find out. The electronic head set they gave us did not work properly. We left minutes after entering the exhibit and were given apologies (not another head set or refund)....More

Not sure why this place rates so highly. It’s quite small and features very little in the way of artefacts or visuals. It relies heavily on the audio guide, which is horribly scripted. Skipping is not an option tho do you are forced to listen...More

This interactive history of Lisbon is excellent. With a duration of around 1 hr is provides a really good overview of the city’s history with cleverly prepared visuals and audio. Would hold the interest of older children too.

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
