Story of the city.

In the Palácio Pimenta, the Museum of the City tells the story of Lisbon through objects tracing its development in all aspects: urban, economic, political and social. Thus, archaeological objects, paintings, drawings and prints tell you all about the development of Lisbon, from prehistory to the nineteenth century.

Culture is also on the program, and the Museum of the City gives you the opportunity to discover the origin of Lisbon's typical phrases, whether obsolete or still used in the Portuguese language.

Lisbon is revealed like never before at the Museum of the City.
