Low budget military museum. Some of the exhibits were very poorly lit and badly maintained. I didn’t expect much for 3 euro so I guess it was average.

An excellent collection of miniature soldiers. Focus is on the Portuguese army. It’s not a large museum but there is a small collection of artillery pieces as well.

Had found this on here and sought it out. Had to be careful with timings as it officially closed between 12.30 & 2.00. In fact once you're inside it didn't seem to matter. The building on the main road has 2 exhibition floors. Upstairs is room after room of display cabinets of model soldiers all carefully labelled. See the photos for an idea of this. Downsyairs ate displays of weapons, paintings etc covering much of Portugese history. I was then shown the courtyard, which contains artillery displays and a second more modern building (see photos) covering 20th Century subjects, including Portugal's colonial wars. All the interpretation boards are in Portugese only so I can't say how they covered those topics (Spanish + guesswork) is limiting. There's also a 3rd building with a shop selling books, postcards etc, but all the books are in Portugese. There are just a couple of A4 sheets explaining the main building displays, in English and French. There's also a small cafe but that's just for staff, though there are some seats. One tip: if like me you came from the River Cruise harbour on foot use the Funicular just at the end of the multi level bridge.

As noted by other reviewers the tin soldiers bit is somewhat limited in its appeal, but the rest of the museum is excellent. Portugal’s contribution to WW1 is covered in depth, and the post-colonial period is treated with an honesty and pragmatism that the French and to a lesser extent the British sometimes tend to avoid. However, I would invite whoever noted on the caption for the FN FAL and H&K G3 that they have an effective range of 200m to stand 300m from either!

We have been to the military museums in Lisbon and Bussaco. This one is managed by the Portuguese army. A very nice gentleman greeted us. He speaks no English or any language other than Portuguese but is very friendly and makes sure all visitors see the whole museum. Upstairs is a remarkable toy soldier collection., downstairs various small room including Wellingtons proclamation and a photograph of the first aviators to fly from Lisbon to Brazil. Outside are cannons and in a separate building information on World War 1, and the Angola, Guinea conflict. Really good for 3 euros.We went on metro, stop Heroismo.only problem is all exhibit information is in Portuguese.
