Museu Nacional do Azulejo, Lisbon: 41 reviews and 93 photos
Tiles, especially in the color blue are a way of life in Portugal, you will see them everywhere. Used as decorations for everything, from the walls of staircases, to the lintel above a door or even the kitchen sink, they enter every level of life here. Hence the Tile Museum.
They have some excellent displays that explain also the making of the tiles themselves as well as the colors used. In addition they have taken the musuem one step further, they have made excellent use of BRAILLE so that those who cannot see, CAN, in at least a small way enjoy the vibrance of the Portugese tiles.
