Lisboa Story Centre - Review
This may be the best place to begin your tour of Lisbon. The centre, via 6 beautiful exhibits, takes you through the story of Lisbon came to be, by the way of the 5 most important events in Lisbon’s history. This covers the period of Portugal’s first settlers and their myths and legends; the creation of the city and its increasing global role; the 1755 earthquake and its impact; the era of rebuilding and reforming the city’s image; and finally, the general state of the city today. The last exhibition is a virtual one which shows, by photographs, the evolution of different areas of the city over the years. Occasionally, the centre also organises temporary exhibitions so keep and an eye on its online calendar for upcoming events.

Lisboa Story Centre, Lisbon Reviews
Take the name literally: You will have a headset narrating the story of Lisbon as you journey through several rooms whose pictures and decoration are evocative of the period being explained to you (in a rather humorous fashion). It's an inventive way to pass on information in a museum, HOWEVER: 1. There's not enough visual information to complement the auditory one 2. You will sometimes not know when to advance into the next room. The audio guide will not tell you and signage is pretty poor 3. For such an old city, there's not nearly enough depth in the analysis 4. Finally, the entertaining narration seems to lose all interest in explaining what happened after 1800. Why?? Overall, great for kids, not for adults or history lovers.
I took the audio guide tour. Some story telling bits were missing, there is always a huge discrepancy between videos and the audio guide, so I had to wait for either one to end so I could start the other. It's a little bit long winded as well, which is a shame as Lisboa's history so rich it could be gripping.
The history of Lisbon in a nutshell! Very interesting and shortcut history insight of Portugal and Lisbon. It really is worth a, especially for its use of modern technology! Have a walk through with a multiple language audio guide. All signs are in Portuguese and English and the whole exhibition is wheelchair accessible. Give it a try!
Cool and brief history of Lisbon. Interactive and visual setting. Felt as though some information was missing or mentioned only in passing. The reenactment of the earthquake was very moving and the highlight.
Enjoyed learning the history of Lisbon. So tragic about the earthquake and tsunami of 1755! So wonderful that the people of Lisbon overcame the tragedy and created the modern city. The Marques of Pombal must have been quite a leader also.
