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
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 good guided tour around video based presentations/ models and the earthquake room. Well presented, informative- head phones were a little unpredictable at times - they were at the end of the 2018 season - overall this gave a good overview of Lisbon’s past -...More
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.
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"!
