The Alianca Underground Museum is an exhibition space, displayed along the traditional wine cellars of Alianca Vinhos de Portugal. Including eight private collections, the public has access to diverse artefacts from the fields of archeology, ethnography, mineralogy, paleontology as well as ceramic tiles and tins covering millions of years of history. Being part of the great universe of the Berardo Collection, these collections are the result of the constant effort of Jose Berardo in collecting and caring for objects of scientific, artistic, historical and sentimental importance.

I don't think the collections are top notch but the whole place is so original and well done that I recommend it highly. Too bad they offer you almost undrinkable (very sweet and cheap) wine afterwords.

A great collection in some enourmous wine cellars make for a pretty unique experience. A must if you're nearby. The wine is also very good.
