This museum located in Chiado, houses collection of Portuguese art from 19th century till today. Although it's named contemporary, it is actually modern and there are only few pieces of contemporary art. They are giving discount only to Portuguese students or student enrolled in Portuguese university (?!).

A small but interesting museum, with a permanent collection of Portuguese modern art between 1850 to 1975, echoing the international art movements at that time. The museum shop is lacking in posters and postcards and should have a wider representation of the museum collection.

A very confusing building made it difficult to find our way around, nor did it hold a very interesting collection.

This is a smaller museum and you can go through it fairly quickly.Lots of stairs, but there is an elevator. I enjoyed reading the history of the building and seeing the brick ovens from when it was a cookie factory. Nice brick ceilings as well in one area. Pretty little garden on the way out.

This is a brilliant museum of modern art that should interest anybody, not just people with expertise in the field. The time period covered is broad, so even if you are somebody who struggles to appreciate the very recent developments in art there will be something here for you to enjoy. Our guide book managed to make it sound like... More
