It's not in the centre of Lisbon. Many fashion pieces from different century. The building itself is worth to visit. Lovely garden. The garden is connecting the museum with 2 other museum.

This was definitely the most difficult museum to find - take a taxi or know how to use your GPS really well - but it was definitely worth the effort. The collection is quite good - especially the men's clothing - and the lovely faded grandeur and glory of the palace is worth the trip! I wish we could have... More

The staff are very knowlegeable and the guide book which is available in Portugese and English is well written and informative. Next to the palace building is a botanic garden and also the... More

I was so surprised by how much I liked this museum! Because of the location, it is probably not going to be on the itinerary for a 1 or 2 day visit to Lisbon. But for repeat visitors, visitors spending a week here, or expats like me, I highly recommend making the trek to Lumiar to see this palace, garden,... More

A place where we can see an exhibition of several kinds of Costumes. Accessories and Costumes tells us the evolution along the centuries. It´s easy to understend that the Costume is a way to comunicate e expression. All this inside a small and beautifull palace. Outside is a nice big garden. I suggest to visit too a Museu Nacional do... More
