Lisboa Story Centre - Memórias da Cidade
Museums and Palaces
Visitors will be transported on a 60-minute journey across time and space, spanning the city’s rich history and multiple stories, ranging from the earliest civilisations to the present day.
Presented in a playful and interactive manner, using a mixture of elaborate sets, multimedia and immersive and sensory experiences, the Centre offers dramatic recreations of Lisbon's most important historical events, within the zone between the Baixa Pombalina and the Terreiro do Paço, exploring the myths and realities of this ancient city.
“Guided” by a multilingual “storyteller”, visitors will be able to soak up the atmosphere of a 16th-century warehouse, discover a Caravela ship and live the immersive experience of the Great Earthquake and its tragic consequences. They will accompany the Marquis of Pombal as he implements his far-reaching vision for reconstruction of the city, in terms of urban planning and organisation.
On the first floor, there is a virtual scale model of the capital that enables multimedia interaction with more than a dozen major historical events.
A temporary exhibitions area complements this spectacular Visitor Attraction.
The Gift Shop closes this journey. Visitors can find several products/gifts related to the city of Lisbon and to the Lisboa Story Centre.
