Tips / Destination

Culture vultures will love these amazing museums in the Portuguese capital. Read on to find out more.


You might not think tiles are the most exciting objects, but the National Azulejo Museum really brings them to life. The humble tile has played a big role in Portugal’s cultural history, and the museum explains the tiles you will see everywhere around the city.


Art lovers will enjoy the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, which houses the oil magnate’s 6,000-strong art collection. There are plenty of artifacts alongside artwork, so there is something to interest everyone.


The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology covers visual arts, technology, science and urban affairs, all housed inside a spectacular white building. The architecture is worth seeing all on its own.


Everywhere you go in Lisbon you will hear the brooding sounds of fado music. At the Museu do Fado you can learn all about the art form thanks to an immersive experience featuring musical instruments, photographs and artifacts from the musical style’s 19th-century roots.


Those with an interest in ancient history should definitely check out the National Museum of Ancient Art, which covers Portuguese history from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. It’s so big you won’t see everything in one day, but there are some great pieces here.

Road Trips in Portugal

You can cover a lot of ground in Portugal in a short amount of time, and the changing scenery makes for great road trips. Here are some of the best routes.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
