A wonderful architecturally interesting building combining modern structure with ancient walls, the collection was terrific and quite extensive for a small museum. You can walk around at your own pace, and the staff were very helpful. A must see in Evora.

The best paintings are 15th &16th century Flemish ones and so the best strategy is to ascend to the first floor and do the pictures first. The rest of the museum is well set out, but the displays are of variable interest and quality. The palace has been beautifully restored and is a treat in itself.

Virtually no visitors in this great museum. Go so you can see for yourself what 1000s are missing as they wander outside to see the Temple of Diana [what little is left]. Do spend an hour or two here.

Went there two days running, because I stupidly missed one of the most fascinating sections - the prehistoric collection downstairs. Among some great displays perhaps the most memorable were the carved stone plaques that evoke owls, costumed figured, etc. The lady kindly waived the charge for our repeat visit. Small enough museum not to leave you dizzy.

the new and attractive display and the richness of the patrimony. I loved the amazing group of more than 10 pannels representing Our Lady's life. They belong to the flemmish school of art and were created in the XVI century. Remarkable are also the examples of Roman architecture .

We didn't expect it to be this good. Its bigger and super well presented. It is also free sundays between 10 am and I believe 2pm. It takes no more than an hour but showcases a number of neolithic finds and more recent roman discoveries. Nice art displays too with old and new intermixed. Would recommend without question

From graces of Christian conquerors that are unearthed in the heart of the museum, to the funerary monuments (both real and faked--clearly identified as such) and the art on the second floor, this museum provides a sense of the city's history and pride in its artists.

This could be easily overlooked but is worth a bit of your time. There are objects well over 2000+ years old. You learn more about the history of Portugal.

A wonderful surprise: an excellent museum with free audio guide; one floor of sculpture from Roman period onwards and one floor of paintings including some fine Flemish works.
