One of my favorite museums which shows all kind of arts - means Pictures, sculptures as well as beautiful applied arts like jewelry, ceramics etc. It's especially nice to have the interaction of the interior with the beautiful garden outside - there are big windows which almost work as frames of the outside....

The city of Lisbon should be very proud to have such a jewel of a museum! The collection includes works from Egyptian antiquities to more modern 19th & 20th century works. The manuscript collection was impressive. As well as their Asian collection. The Renaissance works as well as the Impressionists were our favorites! Their galleries are beautifully laid out chronologically.... More

The metro was on strike the day we chose to visit the Gulbenkian Museum. Expecting the buses to be packed and declining the services of a surly taxi driver we arranged to go by tuk-tuk instead. What a delightful collection! The spacious galleries encourage you to wander and there is plenty to see. We loved the older and Asian exhibits... More

Superb collections of art! Paintings, decorative and oriental art. The space is very comfortable. Try the cafeteria and esplanades. Stroll in the garden. If possible, go to a musical concert in a magnificent hall with excellent acoustics.

This is one of two Lisbon's main museums of fine arts. It contains a large and impressive collection of not only European art, including works of Rembrandt, but also Asian, especially Islamic Art. It is located not very far from the center of the city.

Gulbenkian is an unmissable museum because it has great examples of works from every period and style dating from ancient Egypt through French Impressionists (with everything in between). Also, free on Sundays! Definitely don't miss this museum if you enjoy art and are visiting Lisbon!

À long time ago, i had the chance to visit this tremendous museum. Of all the museums i've visited this one is the first coming into my mind, as one of the most remarquebable museums i've ever seen. I was overwhelmed by the grandeur of the collection and stunned by the amplitude of the gift from mister Gulbenkian. I specially... More
