Free Lisbon Museums (a guide to enjoying art on the cheap)

Lisboa Portugal é um museu curta. cada rua, cada edifício, cada pedaço de grafite tem história ligada a ela. Lisboa também tem uma incrível coleção de museus que vão desde artes altas para artesanato para bonecos (yeah - fantoches). Ainda melhor, os museus também são bastante barato para visitar ... mas, se você estiver em um orçamento, there's no need to worry.  Today I'll give you a list of Free Lisbon Museums and, for those which are not free - the days you can go for free.

Free Lisbon Museums

MUSEUS Lisboa com ENTRADA LIVRE AOS DOMINGOS

 Museu Calouste Gulbenkian - Nossa Senhora de Fátima Neighborhood

This is an incredible museum and although it is not in the center of town it is absolutely worth the visit. Calouste Gulbenkian put together an incredible collection of art from all places and time periods and we are lucky that the 6,000 peças (including some master pieces by the likes of  Rubens, van Dyck, Frans Hals, Rembrandt, Fragonard, Corot, Renoir, Boucher, Manet, Degas e Monet) estão neste espaço lindo. Melhor parte, não é um museu com tráfego intenso, para que você possa apreciar a arte sem ter que esperar para que as pessoas se mover para fora do caminho de uma peça. É verdadeiramente uma experiência de museu confortável.  When you are done, fazer um lanche no café ao ar livre do museu nos jardins, ou de cabeça para El Corte Inglês (vá para a praça de alimentação no chão sub) para um belo lanche.

Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga - Santos Neighborhood

I went to this museum a lot. The collection here is outstanding with its jewel being the Temptation of Saint Anthony by Hieronymus Bosch. Há mais do que 40,000 pieces of art here. This is a serious collection...and as a bonus, there is a great restaurant with a gorgeous view over the river. While this one is not free every Sunday, it is free the first Sunday of every month.

MNAC (Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporanea) - Chiado Bairro

Fantastic collection of contemporary art with a lot of Portuguese artists being represented. I learned tons not just about Portugal's art scene, but its history. Oh, a bonus is that the building it is housed in is absolutely gorgeous. Quick note, there are two buildings, so don't miss out.

LISBON MUSEUMS WITH FREE ENTRY ON FRIDAYS

Museu do Oriente - Alcantara Neighborhood

A gorgeus collection that shows just how the Portuguese empire had expanded its reach to Asia. The collection is impressive (although some of the floors were quite dark making it hard to appreciate some pieces). A plus (for me at least), the museum was almost empty, so I was able to take my time and enjoy.

Hours of Operation: Mon fechado. Tue-Sun 10am-6pm, Fri 10am-10pm

FREE LISBON MUSEUMS (EVERYDAY)

Museu Coleção Berardo - Belém Bairro

Eu estava deslumbrado com a coleção de arte moderna incrível aqui. O museu inclui peças de alguns dos maiores da arte contemporânea, incluindo Warhol, Picasso, Dali, Duchamp, Magritte, ele olhou, Bacon, Jackson Pollock, e Jeff Koons.  Fiquei ainda mais impressionados quando eu vi que eu era basicamente a única pessoa no museu. Este museu é gratuita, but a guided visit for an adult costs  €5.  One weekend a month, visitas guiadas são gratuitas. Basta dar-lhes um anel para descobrir o que fim de semana será o mês você pretende visitar.

Museu da Electricidade - Belém Bairro

What a cool museum. It's an old electric plant and you get to see how electricity was produced back in the day. On the way out there are tons of games that help you (and kids) learn about electricity. There are also pictures showing the old electric workers, some of whom were children. It's on the river and right by the MAAT, so the location could not be more perfect.

Museu do Aljube-Resistência e Liberdade - Alfama Bairro

This museum is a great place to visit if you want to learn about Lisboa and the time they were under a dictatorship (1926-1974). The museum's mission is to keep the memory of the dictatorship alive so that democracy may reign forever. It's goal is to make sure that we do not make the same mistakes we made in the past.

Núcleo Arquelógico - Baixa Neighborhood

This is probably one of the coolest free Lisbon museums. When the millennium BPC building was being renovated in the early 90's, they found some amazing archaeological sites, sobre 2,500 years of history in Lisbon can be seen here (including a Roman spa and a fish salting factory). If you're a history or archaeology buff, this is a site you should not miss.

Hours of Operation: Closed Sun. Mon-Sat 10am- 12pm, 2pm-5pm

Chegando la: Metro to Baixa-Chiado

Museu do Design e da Moda - Baixa Neighborhood

The building is currently under construction, but should be amazing once it re-opens (should be late 2017). Its collection has been moved, last I heard it is at the Convento da Trindade, so it is a good idea to email them before planning your trip (mude@cm-lisboa.pt). The museum deals (obviously) with fashion and design and has some incredible pieces by the likes of Francisco Capelo,  Phillipe Starck, Charles Eames, George Nelson, Arne Jacobsen, Paul Henningsen, Vener Panton and Tom Dixon. Worth a visit and definitely will be a must see once the building is back up and working. 

Hours of Operation: Mon fechado. Tue-Sun 10am-6pm. Check website for holiday hours. 

Phone: + 351 218 886 117
