As an art fan, this was the highlight of my trip to Lisbon. The museum boasts a stunningly large collection of Portuguese tiles, spanning from the Medieval times to the modern day. It's well sectioned off so you can glean a great understanding of this...More

The Tile Museum is not well known by Lisbon visitors. It is really worth it to visit it. Reachable by public transport. Very quiet café serving lunch and drinks.

A unique exhibition of painted tiles starting from medieval all the way to modern times, inside an old monastery. Mesmerizing ! Don't miss the top floor with the giant tile composition of old Lisbon before the great earthquake!

This is a relatively small museum. Worth visiting if you are interested in tiles or just appreciate beautiful art. The exhibit includes tiles from long ago up through contemporary. Not terribly expensive. A charming place to visit.
