Transport & Parking
There is disabled parking at the door to the museum. Easiest way is to take a cab. For the sake of our Euan's we did it on public transport, in this case the Metro (underground) see the sacrifices we make! If you go by Metro you alight at San Sebastao. Do not take "El Corte Ingles" access if you can't do steps. Once out of the underground head for the crossing at the El Corte department store. Cross downhill onto Rua Marques de Fronteira. Behind the tall new building you will see a gate to a fortress. Forwa d of the take a left down a narrow street Rua Doutor Nicolau Bettencourt. Follow the red asphalt path to the bottom of the hill, round to the right and enter the museum park via the driveway for cars. Follow it round to the left to the main door to the museum. Ignore the path marked with the wheelchair symbol that just takes you into the park.
Access all around the exhibition space, cafe and toilets is very good. The museum is low light throughput bear this in mind re sight impairments. There is an audio guide available. €10 admission, over 65 half price. Careers get in free.
Toilet has good features but you need to get attendant to your unlock it. She is usually hovering in the ladies. No way to lock from the inside so sing! No red cord. I presume attendant stands with her hairnet jammed up against the door to answer your cry.
All were great.
