Loved this little museum! We came across it by accident, and had about 1 hour to quickly look around. Fascinating to anyone interested in medicine and medical history. Pretty hidden!

This is a wonderful museum full of surprises and excellent value for money. Intriguing and inspiring as well as informative. A credit to Lisbon and a ‘must’ visit.

The cafe is serving outside and you have a fantastic view of the sea. The interior is held in cosy atmosphere and the food and wine was great

Beautifully designed and laid out but very little information in anything other than Portugese. The old pharmacies were beautiful.

A real gem of a museum with great exhibits you can see in 45 min. Has great artifacts and dioramas over years. A must see if you are interested in the history of medicine or pharmacy.
