Reasons for trip

The Lisbon Story Centre is an indoor attraction situated on one side of the Praça do Comércio, the main square near the harbour.

When you enter you’ll be given an audio guide with a commentary in your own language. You then walk through a series of exhibits – films, models and slideshows – learning about the history of the city. The basic visit takes about an hour, but there’s also an upstairs area with interactive computer monitors which go into more detail if you’re interested.

I know people who consider this sort of attraction to be too commercial and artificial, but actually I found it really interesting. It gave me a very good introduction to the history of the city and I felt that the exhibits brought it all alive. It was also a great way to spend some time on a rainy morning! I spent a total of 90 minutes there including a visit to the upstairs area.

The Centre is fully accessible for wheelchair users. Price was 7 euros, or 8 for a combined ticket with the Rua Augusta arch, which I thought not unreasonable. You have to be 65 to get a reduction, in which case it’s 5 euros (6.5 with the arch). Sadly no reduction for disabled visitors or their carers. There are limited toilet facilities but these do include a disabled toilet.
