Museum Open in this Schedule (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Within the skeletal ruins and exposed pillars and arches of the Convento do Carmo there is a fascinating archaeological museum that holds many treasures from years gone by. This museum was constructed in order to preserve and protect the archaeological history of Portugal, which was under threat from Napoleon’s invasions, internal conflicts and other factors. It is an absolute must for any history lover visiting Lisbon.

The Museu Arqueológico do Carmo holds a trove of archaeological wonders, including hand painted tiles from the 16th century, sarcophagi from the 4th century and even mummies from 16th century Peru.

There is an eclectic collection of wonders here and the museum even includes Pre-Columbian figurines from South America, Hispanic-Arab tiles, French porcelain and much more.
