As a news junkie I loved this museum. Quite a random thing to find in Sintra! They have a special exhibition on Women and Media..A struggle against Sexism!! so it's free on Sundays for women, l thought that was a very nice gesture. Another true delight were the two girls at the ticket counter that went out of their way to be super helpful and friendly, just lovely..
Interactive, technology-based museum, where you can experience #VR and learn about the history of media, propaganda, personalities dueling in media, war embedeed journalism, women in media and many other topics.
Really fun place to visit with the family. Great burst of history facts in fun interactive scenes.
Very original and interesting, it tells you the story of the world during the past century
