Located in Lisbon's historic centre next to the Church of Saint Anthony and close to the Sé Cathedral, this branch of the Museum of Lisbon is dedicated to Saint Anthony and his relationship with the city of Lisbon, where he was born and lived half his life. 

The Museum of Lisbon - Saint Anthony opened in 2014 after the previous Museu Antoniano, founded in 1962, was refurbished and a new exhibition space was added, joining two buildings of different typologies: the original space, possibly part of the Real-Casa de Santo António; and the new space, part of a typical Pombaline apartment building. 

The house where the saint was born, now the Church of Saint Anthony, has been property of the City Council since time immemorial, and was used as an administrative building between 1326 and 1741 for official civic ceremonies, Senate meetings, and as storage for the City Council’s safe boxes.

The Museum of Lisbon - Saint Anthony has a long-term exhibition area and a documentation centre.
