The Museum of Lisbon - Roman Theatre will hold an Archaeology Open House, a unique opportunity to discover several spaces in the old part of the city, which for the first time will open their doors to show the archaeological remains inside. A range of private houses, shops, hotels and museums will reveal, on a single weekend, what very few people have seen. Well-kept secrets of a very rich and ancient past in the city of Lisbon.
