This Baixa star, set in a cavernous former bank, contains furniture, industrial design and couture dating from the 1930s. Free since 2009, it's closed for renovations until September 2017 and will reopen with an admission fee. Highlights include iconic furniture by Charles Eames, Frank Gehry and Brazl's Campana Brothers; plus haute couture by the likes of Givenchy, Christian Dior and Balenciaga.

Don't miss temporary exhibitions staged downstairs in the former vaults. Exhibits are arranged by decade, with signs in both English and Portuguese. Once the €6.5-million renovation is complete, expect new exhibitions on architect and designer Conceição Silva, industrialist Fernando Seixas and designer Carlos Rocha.
