    This is an on-site museum, located in the historic area of the city; this site of the Museum of Lisbon aims to reveal what used to be one of the most important monuments of the city of Olisipo.

    The museum is set inside two buildings from different eras, one from the eighteenth century and the other from the beginning of the nineteenth, an example of industrial architecture, which used to house a printing press and a leather bag factory. The building was renovated and adapted to host the Museum of Lisbon – Roman Theatre.

    The site has a long-term exhibition and is an archeological dig site.
