Very interactive, walk through history of Lisbon, Best way to get the history of Lisbon in only an hour. Definitely recommend for adults and children alike. You get an audio guide the self guides as you walk through the museum.
Our first day in Lisbon we walked over to the Lisbon Story Center in the Praca di Comercio... Inside you stroll past cleanly-lit displays and story-boards of Lisbon's history, from early times to the present, your audio guided by a GPS... They're simple enough for...More
I liked the Lisboa Story Centre a lot. It‘s very modern with its GPS system and different historical sections. It was interesting and didn‘t take too long. Especially the part about the devastating 1755 earthquake was nicely put into scene. Free of charge with the...More
We all enjoyed the Alison story centre and learnt something new. The audio guides work well based on GPS which worked well for all 5 of us. The re-enactment were quite informative (although the English dialogue and attempted humour was a bit clunky). The earthquake...More
Need more seats, some good information on the audio guide but with no information boards and no seating it does get a bit tedious. I feel the ticket price is a bit steep for what you get, but as part of the Lisboa pass it's...More
This might be a great attraction but we did not really have an opportunity to find out. The electronic head set they gave us did not work properly. We left minutes after entering the exhibit and were given apologies (not another head set or refund)....More
We used our Lisbon card for free entry. We were supplied with an audio guide which used GPS to automatically start the dialogue as you moved through the rooms. There is not a lot see as each room is a simply a set of painted...More
Not sure why this place rates so highly. It’s quite small and features very little in the way of artefacts or visuals. It relies heavily on the audio guide, which is horribly scripted. Skipping is not an option tho do you are forced to listen...More
Include in the entry price was an audio guide. This is vital to enjoy the exhibition. As you walk round it picks up your location and tells you about that point in history. This isn’t a Museum with lots of artifacts but as the name...More
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 Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
