The Lisbon Museum

Lisbon's story



Lisbon City Museum


The compelling Lisbon Museum tells the story of Lisbon's long history through prehistoric, Roman, Visigothic, Moorish, and medieval remains. Its main branch is located in the 18th-century Pimenta Palace, built as a gift for King João V's mistress.

Highlights include an enormous model of pre-earthquake Lisbon, maps and prints from before and after the quake (including a 17th-century painting showing Comercio Square before it was remodeled), and tile panels of city scenes. Also interesting are engravings of the Inquisition and of Catherine of Bragança departing Lisbon to marry England's Charles II.

There is also a lovely garden and courtyard with peacocks wandering around.

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