Sep 20 @ 10:00 – 17:00
to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”

Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

to Sept 29 | MUSIC FESTIVAL | Somersby Out Jazz 2019 | Lisbon | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

The 13th edition of Somersby Out Jazz is back in Lisbon, which means you have the option of spending any given Sunday afternoon trough the end of September enjoying jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, rock, DJs, drinks, dancing, friends, and fresh air in some of the most beautiful gardens of the capital.
Free of charge.
Here’s what José Filipe Rebelo Pinto, founder of Somersby Out Jazz, says:
“Lisbon is trendy and still has a lot to offer. There are many green spaces scattered throughout the city with great potential, which have the capacity to receive an event of this size and that only benefit in being more dynamic. The aim of the Somersby Out Jazz is precisely to provide a diversified musical experience for Portuguese and foreigners while promoting the gardens in which it is held and encouraging their (re-)visitation.”

The Belém Tower Garden is the first outdoor venue to receive the 2019 edition, followed by:
Jardim do Campo Grande in June;
Jardim da Estrela in July;
Ribeira das Naus in August,
and Bela Vista Park in September.

Sep 28 @ 08:00 – 18:00
Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

to Dec 31 | EXHIBIT | "Among Dinosaurs" | Príncipe Real | 5€ @ Museu de Historia Natural e da Ciência | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

As you probably already know, dinosaurs once roamed the Earth— but did you know that they roamed around Portugal? The Museum of Natural History is taking an intensive look at different types of dinosaur fossils and inviting you to get to know the regions of Portugal where they are most abundant. Learn about excavation work, laboratory preparation, and identification of the Allosaurus fossils found in Andrés (Pombal) and maybe you’ll get a better idea about just what was going on at this time 150 million years ago, and what dinosaurs have survived until today.

Note: Weekend hours are from 11h to 18h

From the organizers:

Allosaurus: in what regions of the planet were they discovered? What characteristics did these Dinosaurs have? The answer to this question leads to the reflection about the diets of the dinosaurs, their life habits, and the adaptations necessary for their survival. Since Allosaurus is a theropod, we can not forget that some dinosaurs of this group evolved acquiring avian characteristics. We are therefore led to the conclusion that not all of the dinosaurs were extinct 66 million years ago.

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

If you’ve never seen the inside of a prison, then chances are you’re not in the U.S., let alone doing better than a lot of the planet.
Museu do Ajube aims to change that — but, don’t worry, not permanently, and for a mere three bucks.
Here’s their verdict:
“The Portuguese Prison Photo Project provides an insight into seven contemporary Portuguese prisons. From the largest and oldest, dating back to the 1880s, to the newest, opened in 2004.
The images, captured by two photographers — Portuguese Luís Barbosa and Swiss Peter M. Schulthess — show different approaches and perspectives, and are complemented by historical images from the national archives.”

to Sept 29 | MUSIC FESTIVAL | Somersby Out Jazz 2019 | Lisbon | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

The 13th edition of Somersby Out Jazz is back in Lisbon, which means you have the option of spending any given Sunday afternoon trough the end of September enjoying jazz, soul, funk, hip-hop, rock, DJs, drinks, dancing, friends, and fresh air in some of the most beautiful gardens of the capital.
Free of charge.
Here’s what José Filipe Rebelo Pinto, founder of Somersby Out Jazz, says:
“Lisbon is trendy and still has a lot to offer. There are many green spaces scattered throughout the city with great potential, which have the capacity to receive an event of this size and that only benefit in being more dynamic. The aim of the Somersby Out Jazz is precisely to provide a diversified musical experience for Portuguese and foreigners while promoting the gardens in which it is held and encouraging their (re-)visitation.”

The Belém Tower Garden is the first outdoor venue to receive the 2019 edition, followed by:
Jardim do Campo Grande in June;
Jardim da Estrela in July;
Ribeira das Naus in August,
and Bela Vista Park in September.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.
