Time Out says

Any trip to Cascais should include the “Museu da Vila”, a small, free admission museum narrating the history of the town. It tells stories of the people who inhabited the area before the birth of Portugal (pre-12th century), of the birth of Cascais and the significance of its coat of arms, of the importance of fishing and agriculture, of life after the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 and of the years when it became the Portuguese Riviera. An interesting trip with some interactive moments.
