Remarkable collection of tiles and paintings, carved wood cabinets, etc. The Chapel of Saint Anthony is simply amazing. There was also a small but excellent gift shop.

Portuguese, along with the Arabs and Spanish are very good on tiles. We all influenced each other and in Portugal the tiles translate epochs and adapt to the rim of history. This museum is quite a must

Nothing is more iconic or prolific than the tile work throughout the entire country.

The National Tile Museum affords the opportunity to understand the history and significance of this art form all while strolling through a beautiful monastery.

The exhibits are broken out by century and the descriptions provide an overview of time period and provenance when available.

The panoramic display of Lisbon on the third floor is not to be missed.

Could have spent far longer at this Museum. Loved our visit.

I recommend the 759 bus to get to and from the museum. We got on around Sta. Apolonia (blue line metro) in Alfama Pirchase a 24 hour ticket at any metro station and gain unlimited daily access to all metro, buses, as well as the 15E team.

Set in the lovely building of an old convent. The tiles were good but there was also a beautiful church.
