The top 5 most enjoyable children’s museums in Lisbon according to We Heart Lisbon

We enjoy visiting museums in Lisbon with our children. We are looking for museums that offer a mix of education and entertainment, making them perfect for a family outing. Although MAAT may not immediately come to mind as a child-friendly museum, a visit to the old power station combined with the unfortunately now-ended exhibitions by artist Joana Vasconcelos was a great success for our children aged 6 and 9.

Below are our favorite museums in Lisbon to visit with children.

1. Museum Quake: Experience an interactive adventure at Museum Quake, where young and old can enjoy educational exhibitions and simulations that bring the power of earthquakes and natural disasters to life, perfect for an engaging and educational experience on rainy days.
