Open House Lisboa
From the online atlas Open House Lisboa (which brings together the 284 spaces that have been part of the different routes since 2012), the guests design and describe walking tours in the first person, which will result in eight audio guides that the visitor can follow independently and anytime. This is the format of Open […]

Bordalo’s Lisbon Walking Tour
Every road in Lisbon has numerous trails to explore: urban landscapes and layers of history that show us who we are. Bordalo was a born-and-bred lisboeta and it was here that he lived and worked. Through his work we can follow the evolution of the city at the end of the 19th century, but we […]
Today I feel…Zé Povinho
It was on 12 June, 1875 that Bordalo first drew the figure Zé Povinho. On the day when Zé Povinho celebrates 144 years of existence, this visit will give us a detailed understanding of the complexity of this iconic character created by Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro.
Convivências (Conviviality). Temporary Exhibition
Guided tour of the temporary exhibition in the Pavilhão Preto
Lisbon before the Earthquake
The Earthquake of 1755: its consequences. The reconstruction of the city and those involved.
Remember Belém Tour
This tour aims to draw attention to the history of Belém, as a place connected to the Maritime Discoveries and featuring at the 1940 Portuguese World Exhibition. It will thereby demonstrate how constructed and natural heritage intersect and reinforce its cultural and patrimonial identity, linked to the Tagus and the sea.
April Conversations: two museums, a shared patio
In the late afternoon, discover the two museums which share the Pátio do Aljube: the Museum of Lisbon-Roman Theatre and the Aljube Museum-Resistance and Freedom.

24 de Julho, a liberal avenue…
Apart from the Avenida 24 de Julho, what else do you know about 24th July? And what year are we talking about? And who was leading the way as liberal forces entered the city? We’ve organised a tour that will use our collection to reveal the tumultuous years leading up to the liberal revolution.
Bordalo and April…at Jardim Mário Soares
The Bordalo Pinheiro Museum is taking a stroll down to the Jardim Mário Soares. Will it involve political criticism? Of course! Our Zé Povinho and Bordalo mascots will be inviting families and youngsters to think about the importance of freedom of thought, with games and lots of humour.
Visit/Game- “Manguito” as a philosophical gesture
Is criticism a space of observation or of thought? And how do you turn a gesture into an active position of change? This is an invitation to develop your thinking on self-awareness and the world of Zé Povinho and his manguito (an offensive fist-pump gesture), John Bull’s bedpan, Maria da Paciência, Barrigas and so many […]
