Best Museums in Lisbon
Lisbon is home to over 30 museums, both big and small. Aside from collections of European and Portuguese artwork, Lisbon museums showcase a wide range of historical and cultural items, including design collections, royal coaches, archeological finds, science and technology, Fado music memorabilia, marionettes, and various religious artifacts.
Housed in former convents, castles or mansions, Lisbon museums are often included in guided tours, particularly those located within the city. The Lisboa Card, managed by the tourism office, sometimes offers free or reduced tickets to these museums. You’re lucky if you plan to go on a museum-hop on a Sunday, since many museums have free admission on Sunday mornings. And with the help of your local host, your day at the museum will be even more informative!
