Museu Do Oriente - Review
Portugal enjoyed its own flourishing colonial period, finding much success in the Orient, Indonesia and Japan. The beautifully presented museum exhibits Portugal’s finds and appropriations from those lands, covering ceramics, textiles, furnishings, paintings, and masks.
Some of the museum’s highlights are:
- Rare Chinese and Japanese screens and Ming porcelain
- The Gods of Asia section
- Antique snuff bottles
The museum is also a cultural centre that holds and organises frequent exhibitions and shows. There’s a restaurant on the top floor, and below, a cafe. Also check out the museum shop.

Museu Do Oriente, Lisbon Reviews
Expected a larger exhibition but I think I came over too late. nicely presented, modern exhibition with video and audio assist and plenty of space. several in theme but different exhibitions.
A great start to learn about Portugal's relationship with Asia. I want to be educated further on Portugal's empires and the lasting effects in culture, food and political/economic ties.
A museum with heritage of India, China, Japan and several Far eastern territories emphasising Portugal's merchant seaman and colonial history . Starts from approximately 15th century and comes to 1980s which are mainly sent gifts to Portugal by those countries overseas. Displayed pieces are worth to see, but the inside atmosphere is dark ( actually complete black) decorated. That might make you feel sleepy. Air conditioner works very well inside so beware of bringing some long sleeves during your visit.
Great place to feel atmosphere of the Age of Discovery and its trails through Asia. The museum is a bit overlooked as we were enjoying the museum collection almost alone. Watching the black samurai armor, especially helmet, you can realize where the idea of Dart Weider's suit has come from :)
Excellent all around. Chinese opera exhibit is superb
