Roman Museum, Lisbon, Portugal.

On a street behind the cathedral leading up to the Santa Luzia lookout is a small museum presenting the history and some finds from Lisbon’s Roman Theater, whose archaeological remains stand behind it. There is not much left but the museum recreates it beautifully.

The theater was built in the first century BC by Emperor Augustus and expanded in 57 AD with a capacity for 5000 people. It was abandoned in the Middle Ages and disappeared underground until Lisbon’s post-earthquake reconstruction in the 18th century.

The museum features a smattering of columns and other finds, including a sculpture of Silenus and an inscription dedicating the theater to Nero.
