5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is the most interesting museum in Lisbon. I saw a wonderful temporary exhibit of great artworks related to the sea.

“Not to be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Easily reached my metro and the collections are wonderful. Amazing that one man could accumulate so much history in one home. Food at the cafeteria (that has an outdoor seating area) was better than many museums I have visited. Suggest at least two hours for a visit.

“A Lisbon must see !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Wow, I visited the Gulbenkian museum today at the urging of a good friend, much to my delight. I'm not a museum type and I'd already been to a few in Portugal that confirmed my disinterest but this one is different. I was very impressed with this museum - both the collection and the grounds. Whether you're an avid museum goer or just like to take in the odd one here and there, go to the Gulbenkian. You won't regret it.

“Exquisite collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is the single best collection of artefacts I've ever seen, with the exception of just the major museums like the Louvre, the V&A and British Museum.
