Portugal In Asia

The Museu do Oriente has a collection of Asian artifacts showing the history of Portuguese influence in the East. All the artwork and artifacts are displayed on black backdrops to emphasize the art and immerse you in each object. You can get an overview of Portuguese involvement in Asia through artifacts from India, Burma, and China, including some Chinese porcelain plates from the Ming and Qing dynasties. The museum’s other floor has modern religious paraphernalia that includes Buddhist and Hindu objects. This is a perfect stop for anyone genuinely interested in Eastern religions and Portuguese influence in Asia. After you explore the museum’s two floors you can stop by the gift shop, café, or museum restaurant.
