Absolutely stunning. I strongly recommended that you visit the Lisbon Story Center first so you can fully appreciate the history behind the church that acts as the site of the museum. Take your time taking in not only the exhibits, but the remarkable architecture and historical significance of this church/museum.
Not long line getting ticket and info the site. The site is stunning! Very worth visiting. It’s also great not too packed inside unlike other attractions.
