Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia Lisbon’s newest attraction, the MAAT stands proud along the waterfront in Belém. The vision of U.K.-based architect Amanda Levete, the museum takes interactivity to a whole new level, encouraging visitors to walk on its roof and snap photos of its scaled facade, which is particularly beautiful at sunset when it reflects the shimmering Tagus River. The building is connected by a garden walkway to an older structure—a red-brick, Industrial Age power station that itself is on display. Visitors can also expect rotating exhibitions on the museum’s namesake topics: art, architecture, and technology.
