Visit eight Lisbon museums, stopping at eight metro stations. On the route between Amoreiras and the Chiado, one of the most culturally dynamic in the city of Lisbon, there are eight museums with collections as diverse as archaeology, history, art history, the fine arts and the sciences. What's more, the metro is itself a museum of modern and contemporary art, with amazing spaces which surprise for the boldness and artistic quality of their tiled walls.
To complement the art and science tours, between January and August 2015 on the last Saturday of each month, there will be a free guided tour, by prior reservation, to each of the eight museums located between Rato and the Chiado to discover the close relationship that exists between the metro stations and the museums.
