Description

Dedicated to the history of the Portuguese capital, Lisboa Story Centre was inspired by the wide range of events that have shaped the city. Located in the East Wing of the newly renovated Terreiro do Paço, it was designed as an interactive visitor attraction, comprising 6 public areas, and featuring state-of-the-art technology. With your day ticket, you’ll be transported on a fascinating journey through time. Using a mixture of elaborate sets and multimedia and sensory experiences, the Centre stages dramatic recreations of Lisbon's most important historical events, exploring the myths and realities of this ancient city. Presented in a playful and interactive manner, while respecting the rich historical tapestry of this magnificent city, the Centre offers visitors a 60-minute journey across time and space in an area that covers around 2,200 square meters. On the ground-floor you’ll find the 5 main exhibition areas. Each area features a story based on episodes of Lisbon’s history, and arranged in chronological order. Visitors are guided by a recorded multilingual storyteller on a fascinating tour. You’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere of a 16th-century warehouse and discover products from the New World, transported in caravela ships, also on display. You’ll witness the tragic events of All Saints' Day in 1755 in an immersive experience of the Great Earthquake and its tragic consequences. You’ll accompany the Marquis of Pombal as he implements his far-reaching vision for reconstruction of the city. These 5 exhibition areas cover Lisbon’s entire history, from the earliest civilizations to the present day. The 6th exhibition area is located on the first floor, and features a virtual scale model of the capital, enabling visitors to see the city’s various types of architecture, provides a more detailed account of Lisbon's history, and encourages visitors to discover modern Lisbon. You’ll also have access to a temporary exhibition area, relating to the Centre's main themes.
