Interesting experience - creative display of trash
Jun 2016 • Couples
The Museu do Lixo (Museum of Trash) features a trove of found items of rubbish such as electrical appliances, bric-a-brac, books, paintings, records, toys, a couple of old pianos, sculptures, and even a disco ball. Some of the items are nostalgic, and some of the items are just weird. Most of the items can reasonably be described as ‘lixo’ but they are displayed creatively and overall visiting the museum was an interesting and unique experience.

The museum is located within a municipal waste management facility. From what I could understand from my limited Portuguese, everything in the museum was salvaged directly from the waste facility. The museum appeared to be staffed by volunteers who had a noticeable passion for the museum. They told me that their aim in creating the museum was to raise awareness about society's waste habits, consumerism, and the benefits of recycling. Don’t expect a high tech museum – the contents are basic. Entry was free.
