Dia Internacional dos Museus / Noite dos Museus

These next few days will be amazing for museum lovers who find themselves in Lisbon (or in Portugal in general)!

In fact, besides the Belém Art Fest (for the ones that follow us, we already spoke about it), the 16th is the “Noite Europeia dos Museus”, and the following Monday, exactly the 18th of May, is the “Dia Internacional dos Museus”.


In particular, the whole in the “Noite dos Museus”, which literally means the Museum Night, approximately 70 museums in the whole Portugal will offer a wide range of 400+ activities, appositely thought for this occasion. For what concerns the International Museum Day, on the 18th, it is a celebration that dates back to 1977, when the ICOM, International Council of Museums proposed it for the first time, and that will see the major Lisbon museums offer free entrance to the visitors. In particular, we feel keen to advice you some valuable ones to visit:

Atelier-Museu Júlio Pomar

Centro de Arqueologoa de Lisboa

Museu Bordalo Pinheiro

Museu do Fado

Museu de Lisboa - Palácio Pimenta

Santo António

Casa dos Bicos

Museu da Marioneta
