More Lisbon Kid Friendly Ideas

How about a trip to the Marionette Museum
The former 18th century Bernardas Convent houses a lovely collection of over 1,000 puppets, including some dating from the 17th and 18th centuries - knights, princesses, devils, among other characters.

Most are from Portugal, while others came from Italy, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, and China. The museum explains the history of the art form and there are frequent puppet shows, making this an ideal attraction for families.

End your visit at the café.
Where: Rua da Esperança, 146 Lapa
How: Tram 25
When: 10AM-1PM, 2PM-6PM (Closed Mondays)
