Highlights include Turner's Wreck of a Transport Ship and the Art Nouveau jewellery of René Lalique, the finest of which is a brooch, half-woman, half dragonfly, decorated with enamel work, gold, diamonds and moonstones. There is a pleasant... More

The museum was worth a visit. The most incredible thing about the Gulbenkian collection is the condition of all the pieces. Most were in fantastic condition. I've never seen old Greek and Roman coins looking so good. Old pottery was whole, famous greek vases were almost pristine. Moorish rugs looks somewhat worn but still good. The next thing I would...

Small but excellent collection of fine and decorative arts, set in a lovely park, which also contains a separate modern art gallery.

Passed an hour when it rained and has a great Rene Lalique collection. Great collection and cheap as museums go €5 each.

Inside and outside you have amazing things as someone said - quality not quantity - very well said and in that way everything is just for you to admire. That pretty much sums up the collection – it is stunning. You just have to pay a visit and use some time.

This is a must when in Lisbon. The collection is easily viewed in one hour, but I went through twice. Highlights were the extensive collection of Persian and Turkish Iznik tiles and textiles, and the exquisite Rene Lalique Art Nouveau jewelry. Can't use enough superlatives to describe this museum.
