Serendipity is a marvellous thing. We walked and walked yesterday in search of a cafe. Lisbon is all uphill when you are thirsty. But buoyed by Valentine’s Day atmosphere – did I mention the breakfast celebrations a whole family had yesterday in the hotel? Flowers for the ladies, mother and grandma, chocolates and gifts for the children, all in lurid pinks and reds, and something similarly garish for the father. I sound disparaging, but it was actually very sweet – they were all so delighted.
Speaking of breakfast, today we were delighted by a birthday surprise for my husband. The waiter arrived bearing a huge plate of little pasteis de nata. Happy birthday.
Anyway. Back to yesterday. We suddenly came across a very pretty building with the magic word museu attached to it. Let’s go, said I. It’s bound to have a cafe inside. We went in. It didn’t. But we paid our six euros and were absolutely entranced.
A more eclectic collection would be hard to find. 27 rooms of beautiful objects beautifully displayed. Here are a few pictures.

This sounds awesome. Love the photos! Seems like a very fun trip
it was great fun – the husband’s birthday celebrations seem never ending!
Very interesting museum but I do hope you found a café afterwards nearby!
yes – we walked past the museum cafe – it did have one after all but it was full of students on their laptops, and eventually we alighted in a little park with some lovely trees. So all good.
