This museum in Belem is located in a modern and very spacious building. It spreads over many floors and the permanent exhibition has quite some interesting pieces of modern art (also Dali, Picasso, Duchamp, Warhol...). It can be visited in a couple of hours.

We really enjoyed this modern art museum diverse collection, worth the two hours we spent here. Especially nice on a rainy afternoon. There were several small children who also seemed fascinated by many of the pieces.

A large new impressive gallery next to the spectacular Monastery dos Jeronimos. Free entry. Slightly disappointing selection of exhibits but it takes you through the art movements of the 20th century - think Tate Modern.

Modern Art is a kind of a speciality. It's a kind of a concept that covers a lot of diverse types of culture. Berardo Museum covers well a lot of diverse art expressions. It gives you the sense of plurality and challenges you. Like any Modern Art museum should do.

This is a great survey of post-war art in the permanent collection. The guy seemed to have at least one example of every important artist and it was well presented. Great to see some British art in Portugal as well considering our links and they even had an Alan Davie. If you like post war modern art you shouldn't miss... More

Free entrance to a collection of modern art in the cultural center of Belem. 2 floors, 2 periods: until 1960 and 1960-2010. Especially the former is quite stunning. Free entrance, and nice to have a cheap lunch in this cultural restaurant: buffet restaurant on 3rd floor with menu of the day for only 9.5 euro.

When you are in Belem you realy have to visit this museum. It is free so you can just walk through at your own pace and enjoy the permanent and the temporal collection of modern art. I am a big fan of pop art so I enjoyed the couple works from Andy Warhol. I also liked the work from Dali,... More

After a disappointing trip to the monasterio de jeronimos, which is situated right across, we stopped by over here. Sitting on the three floors, the museum is large and boasts an expansive collection comprising Dali, Miro, Warhol among many notable others. The museum is structured around the development and progress of contemporary art with informative descriptions provided around the works.... More

A fabulous collection of important and unusual pieces. Totally absorbing and could have spent hours there. Amazing that it's free entry too.
