Museu de Lisboa – Palácio Pimenta

The Museum of Lisbon is a multi-branched museum comprised of five distinct spaces: Palácio Pimenta, Roman Theatre, Saint Anthony Museum, Casa dos Bicos and the West Tower. The first four spaces present long duration exhibitions that complement one another despite having their own distinct themes.

Completed in 1746, this historic summer palace in Campo Grande, took the surname of one of its former owners, Manuel Joaquim Pimenta. In 1962, it was acquired by Lisbon City Council, which restored both the palace and the gardens, and it was there that the headquarters of the Museum of Lisbon were established in 1979. It holds a vast collection of diverse artistic expressions, which tell the story of the city from its earliest days.


Accessible for people with reduced mobility.
