Weird Museums? Check out the Match Museum in Tomar

Got a light? If not, no problem! Just check out the Match Museum in Tomar. This place ignites your interest with 43 thousand +blue matchbooks, from 122 countries. The collection, began in 1953 by Aquiles de Mota Lima, is today managed by the city of Tomar and housed in the historic convent of St. Francis. The Museu dos Fosforos is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., free admission. But, no smoking!
