If you can book a visit to the Palace itself, not only the museum and you'll enjoy it much more. They are usually just at Saturdays. The museum itself is really tasteful and if you want you can learn a lot.

breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your
visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of
