The thing is, it only costs €3.50 to go in.
The grounds around the building are lovely even if you never go in.
There is a shady little park just behind and the neighbourhood of Almoureiras / Rato is incredibly pleasant with lots of nice...More
This is a striking place the moment you walk inside: impressive vaulted ceiling and perfect reflections in the water. A short climb up and you pass what looks like an unending passageway to your right. The views from the top are spectacular. And all this...More
This museum (former pumping station) is recommended in my guidebook, so I went to check it out. It's located at Praca das Amoreiras (metro station: Rato), and you can see the end of the Roman aqueduct there. I went on a Sunday and entry was...More

In 2018 they are celebrating 30 years of the museum, and have free entrance to all monuments of the Water Museum on weekends, so yes, you can do it.
