Laboratorio Chimico

The Laboratorio Chimico is part of the Museu de Ciência da Universidade de Lisboa (‘Museum of Science of the University of Lisbon’). It is a restored 19th century chemistry laboratory that was part of the former Polytechnic School and was used for research and teaching. It still has the original lecture theater and chemistry lab space with original pieces of equipment including a set of reagents and other chemicals in bottles.

As usual the wonderful thing about visiting a museum like this in Lisbon is that you are very likely will be walking there on your own giving you plenty of time to submerge in the mystique of 19th century chemistry research.
