There are plenty of free things to do in Lisbon. Visitors can explore some of the city’s best museums and monuments without having to pay an entrance fee. And there are other things to do and places to see that will suit those travelling on a budget. There’s no charge to enter the Museu do Aljube-Resistência e Liberdade, which is ironic considering this museum is all about the price some have paid for freedom. You can hire a bicycle for nothing over in the resort town of Cascais at biCas and sightsee along the coast on two wheels. Alternatively, one of the Portuguese capital’s more unusual archaeological sites, the Núcleo Arquelógico in Lisbon’s Baixa district, is another free-to-enter attraction. Similarly, the wonderfully atmospheric Museu da Electricidade in Belém is free to enter. Fancy a glass of wine? At ViniPortugal in downtown Lisbon, the tastings are all gratis. Over in Belém the fantastic Museu Colecção Berardo is where you can browse world-famous contemporary art for nothing. Back in the Baixa is the remarkable medieval D. Dinis Wall, housed in a free-to-enter Interpretation Centre. Around the corner is MUDE – Museu do Design e da Moda, another museum that doesn’t charge an entrance fee. Meanwhile up in Chiado is the Igreja de São Roque. Its beautiful interior can be admired just be walking through the door. And back in the resort town of Cascais, there’s nothing to pay to see the modern art exhibited in the Casa das Historias Paula Rego.
