  • Nice museum for those who are interested in how public transport in Lisbon has evolved, with an emphasis on local rail transport. There are (at least) two parts, one with historic information, the other where one can see some old and newer rolling stock. Unfortunately the latter part was closed for some event on the day of my visit, so I could only watch from a distance. At least they waived the entrance fee of €2,00. All in all interesting, despite the fact that everything was very passive; no tour, the one corner where there was evidence of a video presentation, was not working. I definitely picked the wrong day.
  • This is without doubt the best museum I've ever visited!! It was recommended by a mate and I doubt I'd have found it without the nod, because it's quite hidden away and it's not particularly publicised. Anyway, please please please take my word for it and go here! We have kids aged 3 and 5 and they loved it. The place is always empty - we shared it with one other couple at 2pm during the school holidays - and virtually all the old trams and buses are open for you and your kids to 'drive', button press and enjoy. The place is massive and you have a proper heritage team that picks you up at your leisure to take you from place to place. Like the 28 route but with just you and your kids on it! Honestly I can't put into words how good this place is. It's like paying 4 euros to hire the London Transport Museum for yourself AND be allowed to go on all the vehicles. I love Lisbon and this place is the jewel in the crown if you have kids. GO GO GO!
