Orient Museum (Museu do Oriente) Tours

The origins of the Orient Museum (Museu do Oriente) date back to 1988 and the founding of the Fundação Oriente to strengthen Portugal’s ties with Asia. Twenty years later, the foundation opened the Orient Museum with the purpose of preserving and showcasing the richness of Portuguese influence in Asian art and culture.

Housed in a former salt cod warehouse, the Orient Museum’s permanent collection focuses on the Portuguese presence in the Far East, with pieces like statues of Jesuit martyrs, Chinese and Japanese folding screens, Ming porcelain and ritual masks from East Timor. A second collection showcases some 13,000 pieces related to performing arts in the region spanning from Turkey to Japan.

A top floor restaurant serves Asian fare with impressive views over the River Tagus.


Practical Info

To get to the Orient Museum, take the Cascais Line to Alcântara Station. The station has an underground crossing with an exit next to the museum.
