Museu do Aljube

The space that once housed a political prison during the Estado Novo military dictatorship under António de Oliveira Salazar now pays tribute to resistance and freedom as Museu do Aljube.

Located at 42, Rua de Augusto Rosa, this four storey museum contains a gallery of archaeological objects, a space for temporary exhibitions, a permanent exhibition, an auditorium and a cafeteria with a view overlooking the Cathedral of Lisbon and the Tagus River. The museum also offers an educational service (which organises tours for schools) and a documentation centre that contains specialised publications and conducts research relating to the museum’s themes.


Accessible for people with reduced mobility.
