Archaeology Museum

Digging up Portugal's past



Archaeology Museum, Lisbon


Located in the west wing of Jeronimos Monastry, the Archaeology Museum houses Portugal's main archeological exhibits from sites all over the country.

It includes Iron Age and Visigothic jewelry, Roman ornaments and mosaics, early 8th-century Moorish artifacts, and a Greco-Roman and Egyptian section strong on funerary art.

In the treasury is a rich collection of archaic goldwork from excavation sites throughout Portugal featuring some magnificently worked bracelets, Celtic earrings, and rings.

There are also regular temporary exhibitions with important artifacts from Portugal and around the world.

Get FREE admission to the museum and ride Lisbon's metro and buses for free with the Lisboa Card.
