- Budget


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.
