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.

This is definitely something you will want to see in Evora, for it has artefacts from every phase of Evora's history, and many of them are perfectly beautiful.

The light, layout and tiles are gorgeous, but even with the markers translated into English, you don't know what you're looking at and why. Just 'Roman gravestone, x century'...was it found here? What's the story? I found out later that amazing artifacts from a neolithic grave near town are held here but they weren't even labeled as such! Much work... More

We had heard, both in reviews and in the writings of one of Portugal's great writers Jose Saramago, that this is a very respectable museum for being in such a small city. Well, I beg to differ. First of all, it does, yet indeed, have some nice holdings. But the size of the collection is modest, and there wasn't anything... More

The museum is beautifully presented and covers the breadth of the heritage of ancient little Evora. For archaeology buffs, it is a must. Be sure to visit the paleolithic and megalithic collection downstairs.
