Actually, this is a must for anyone interested in art in Lisbon, as it is is a very very fine collection spanning several centuries. You could start the day with breakfast at their cafeteria with its outdoor terrace. don't miss the garden sculpture walk, either.

It is small, but some nice pieces. Gorky exhibition was good. It was nice to see pre-school children engrossed in the explanations by the staff. If you are in to modern art i think its worth a visit.

It wasn't a very large museum but still worth your while. The current collection is very interesting but I would have looked for more verity of materials. THe garden outside is also very nice but no scolptures... (disappointing) Otherwise, go ahead a have a nice couple of hours:)

Visited as it was very close to where I was staying. It was ok and you can't really complain too much when it only costs 5 euro to get in. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again as the art wasn't exactly mind blowing but if you're nearby or have some time to kill then you should... More

Sadly they were changing out their main exhibit when I visited, so only a smaller exhibit in the downstairs gallery was available for viewing. What they had was very nice, with a few interesting pieces. Popping in when you visit Museu Calouste Gulbenkian.

A bit of a disappointment, because the new exhibitions were still under construction. The sole exhibition on view featured interesting work, but was assembled a bit random. The academic wall texts didn't help much.

Accompanied by two teenagers, the fashion and graffiti exhibitions were very well curated and held their attention for a good hour. Well worth visiting.

What a great gallery, The kids loved it as well, even my 12 year old who didn't want to go in, within 10 minutes was really enthused by the place. Fantastic space with great exhibits and it wasn't too busy unlike many UK galleries. The gardens also are worth strolling through.

We enjoyed this museum. It had works of art ranging from wonderful to the bizarre (as you would expect with modern art). The bulk of the works -- but certainly not all -- were by Portuguese artists. We had not known of these artists before, but this museum gave a good introduction to them -- several of whom we really... More

Located near the Calouste Gulbenkian Collection, it contains a very modern collection. There was an abstract expressionist exhibit featuring Arshile Gorky. Tulia Saldanha mixed media exhibit. A lot to think about.
