National Archaeology Museum Tours

Lisbon’s National Archaeology Museum is home to archaeological sites from all over Portugal, the Iberian Peninsula and beyond. The museum is connected the Jeronimos Monastery, built in the 19th century. Many visitors stop to take a look through the small, but interesting museum while visiting the adjacent monastery and the Belem Tower. There are several permanent collections, plus rotating exhibits.  

A highlight is the wide array of ancient jewelry, with pieces from the Gold Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, some dating back thousands of years. Another highlight is the permanent exhibit that is dedicated to ancient Egypt, with several panels of hieroglyphics, sculptures and mummies. The museum houses an extensive collection of artifacts from when modern-day Portugal was under Roman rule — including mosaics, vases, ornaments and coins. There are several Roman rings, which are believed to be some of the first engagement rings.  There are also items from the Iberian Peninsula’s days of Moorish rule, dating back to the 8th century.
