Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro Coimbra
#4 of 273 Museums in Central Portugal
Even the greatest art museums can be somewhat predictable: the greatest artists, usually European on display in rooms arranged chronologically or by country, or a mix of both.
... reasons, being the three most important ones the building restructuration (one of the best in the Portuguese Museums), the Roman cryptoporticus and mainly for the Middle Age sculpture session – don’t miss it.

Igreja de Sao Roque Lisbon
#8 of 273 Museums in Central Portugal
Whilst the museums of Lisbon all disappointed me to some extend due to the fact the collections were all so badly labelled, the same cannot be said for the churches.
... it's many art and history, very nice outside, and inside a real juwel of art decorations, so much gold and wonderful paintings on the top; is like a wonderful museum of art, to admire in a real quit atmosphere.

Centro de Interpretacao da Batalha de Aljubarrota Batalha
#13 of 273 Museums in Central Portugal
We both loved all of them, but this museum brought context to life in those days, and had medieval arms and real battlefield enactment.
There is a small museum, a fascinating video of the battle, the battlefield itself and a great view of the monastery.
