  • Over-simplified. Very brief on history. Not always clear when audio guide moves to the next section.  more »
  • Interesting museum to see, and learn more about the history of Lisbon, including the devastating earthquake that ruined it.  more »
  • First visit to Lisbon, I started from this center, located in Piazza do Comercio, which, taking advantage of multimedia technology, the use of fragrances, perfumes, sounds and special effects, tells, in a historical, cultural journey, the birth and evolution of Portugal. The nice thing is that the audio guides, in all languages, are activated as the path proceeds. Then in a room the great earthquake and subsequent tsunami of 1755 is reconstructed in a more than real way, Really realistic with computerized videos and authentic tossing of chairs ... I highly recommend
  • The tour is covered by the Lisbon pass and the experience is very immersive. You go through a ship and can actually smell the sugar and spices. The tour is very well guided by an audio system that is informative, funny or tragic depending on the subject matter being presented. Very warmly recommend.
