SINTRA'S NEWS MUSEUM

Situated in the former Toy Museum the News Museum highlights the important role journalism and the media have played shaping our modern world. Using both hands-on exhibits and virtual displays the collection is an insightful and thought provoking showcase for the art of media and communication. The visitor is encouraged to interact with radio and television presentations broadcasting media coverage of episodes in recent history. The museum pays homage to the skill of journalists who have been immortalised in film who have applied their art to bring of reports of tragedy, happy occasions, wars, famine and the fluffy-dog stories of the day. The museum also examines the use of propaganda applied in the past both in Portugal's history and worldwide, in conjunction with how it's employed today to bolster certain regimes.

THE MUSEUM

Sintra News Museum

Here too you can learn about photo-journalism and see some of the most famous photos ever taken, such as Buzz Aldrin on the moon and Alberto Korda's photo of Che Guevara. The museum also goes on to examine new media, viewing habits and technologies as well as the phenomenon of fake news. The museum's collection of Radio and TV broadcasts from around the world is vast and is one of the largest in the world. Exhibits and commentaries are available in both Portuguese and English. The museum has grown in popularity over the last few years and offers an alternative experience to the somewhat dreamy fairy-tail town of Sintra outside.

The museum can be found just as you arrive into the centre of the old town, before you get to the National Palace, in a side street next to the Sintra Boutique Hotel.
