Antonio Medeiros e Almeida, who lived here, was a collector, and he personally turned his own house into a museum to show off the treasures he’d collected over the course of his life. Thus, this outstanding little museum is an indispensable collection of 17th to 20th century fine art. Paintings, furniture, porcelain, silverware, sculptures, a rosewood and glass marble clock, the tea-set that once belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte. These beautiful objects come from all over the world- Finland, China, England. It is 25 rooms of visual delight.

This is an outstanding museum with a rich and varied collection of furniture, ceramics, paintings and artistic objects. Several of the rooms contain architectural features such as ceilings and walk panelling which was acquired from elsewhere. We spent a whole day in the museum! There is also an agreeable and inexpensive cafe.
On par, if not better than the Wallace Collection in London. Free on Sat am and hardly anyone in there! Great collection of timepieces, beautiful rooms, jewels, statues and furnitures.
This museum is a hidden gem in Lisbon. Although it is the center of the capital, you don't see a lot of visitors there. It's a private collection of art and personal belongings such as jewe, watches, porcelain etc. It's a great way to get amused by incredible objects and make a trip back in time! Price: 5€ per person 60+: 3€ Under 18: free
Wonderful gem of a museum. It is the old villa of wealthy collectors, and thus provides a fascinating insight into Portuguese history. Beautifully laid out rooms with detailed descriptions available in multiple languages including English. It seems to be off the beaten tourist track which is an added bonus.
Very good and cheap museum. It is a little bit hidden away from the usual tourists routes, so it is not that busy and you can actually enjoy it. It is basically the house (I would say villa) of someone who collected a lot of art pieces, antiques and similar. Really diverse and interesting.
