The ultramodern Museu do Teatro Romano, reopened in 2015 after a two-year renovation and further excavation, catapults you back to Emperor Augustus’ rule in Olisipo (Lisbon). The star attraction is a ruined Roman theatre extended in AD 57, buried in the 1755 earthquake and finally unearthed in 1964 (which you can enter for free).

Downstairs, viewing platforms give you and an up-close and personal look at the more recently excavated backstage area, along with 3D renderings and videos to bring the whole thing into far-easier-to-digest focus.
