Expert review of Museu do Oriente

Filled with exotic treasures, this is Lisbon's homage to the East.

Portugal's obsession with foreign riches is displayed in this relatively new museum, brims with riches from Asia in a converted warehouse, once used to store salted cod. Magpie-like folk will love the sparkling jewels, silks and china. Expect to see treasures such as Chinese porcelain, Indonesian crafts and Burmese sculptures.

Price advice: 

Entry is four euros for adults and two euros for children.
