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 shot of Che Guevara. The museum also goes on to examine new media, viewing habits and technologies. The museum also tackles the phenomenon of fake news. The museum's collection of global radio and TV broadcasts is vast and is one of the largest on earth. 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 in the centre of the old town, before you get to the National Palace, off a side street next to the Sintra Boutique Hotel.
