The best feature of this museum is the excavation of the old Roman ruins in the basement. See the remnants of the ancient city. And then tour the display of money around the world. Some interesting use of video.

As we were walking around, we came across this museum. We entered with no expectations. It was cool, learning about different currency. There was a huge safe. There was some interactive elements too.

This museum has a lot of interesting and well presented exhibits. There are also many interactive activities which our children enjoyed. Plus it's free, and the building it is in is interesting itself.

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
