The story is well put together and to be fair it was a quiet day and we had space to circulate. Worth the effort if quiet. What disappointed was the entry. The unit serves as an information centre. So people were arriving for that and...More

This is just an audio guide while watching videos. Even the earthquake room is just destorted sound while watching a video. You could easily learn what they tell you by reading a guide book, and you'd learn the information in a more succinct way. Really...More

Really, this museum is terrible. It’s suppose to take you for a walk in history pretty much up to the earthquake in 1755. I wanted to go here a lot since I love history and history museums but it disappointed me. The visuals here are...More

I have been twice & still think that they pack in a lot of information into a short time. It would be great for kids. Seeing it helps you see more as you walk around the City. Great for a rainy day

I enjoyed my time here - it tells the history of Lisbon especially up to the great quake of 1755. I thought the displays were well done and very informative. Well worth the visit.

Good experience to learn about Lisboa history but.... Once you exit, they don’t let you back in to use the WC! The receptionist told us to leave and turn left where they charge you an additional EUR1 to use the toilet...not impressed!

A great introduction to the history of Portugal / Lisbon from its beginning to the ill fated earthquake and military take over in the 70s. Take your time and listen to the commentary as you walk through the program. Enjoyed the experience.

This was described as aimed at kids but it was very informative about the history of Lisbon. It was good value for money.

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
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
