One Paula Rego work, a textile, otherwise, her work isn’t there until 04/11/21! So we are from the UK on a break in Portugal & travelled a round trip of 3 hrs & had planned our day around the visit. We saw a small exhibition of Brit notable artists’ (mostly minor) work! No mention of there being no Paula Rego work atm on website. Staff were grumpy, Such a shame, please keep your website updated!

It is a stunning building in a very pleasant part of Cascais. I was hoping to see more of Rego’s paintings but I think many of them are on loan to the Tate gallery! Even so, the exhibition contained too many sketches and not enough substantial work in my opinion.

It was interesting though. I feel like I know a little bit more about Paula Rego. The explanations beside the paintings were quite detailed but could have gone further.

If you are interested in architecture this building is worth visiting. We didn't go to any exhibition, we just passed by to look the architecture, there was a big space with grass, it was a nice walk/stop before heading to Boca do Inferno.

The architecture of the museum building, landscape around is wonderful and peaceful. Worth at least passing by if you are in Cascais. Although we didn’t visit the museum exhibition.. but the staff looked to be polite and friendly.

About 15 minutes walk from the fort by the sea in Cascais is the striking Paula Rego gallery containing many of her sketches. Well worth a visit, has a nice cafe and takes you away from the crowds on the beach.

This is a museum dedicated to just one artist. It might put some people off a bit, as it lacks the variety of other museums with more general contents, especially if you don´t know the artist and her work beforehand.
It boasts many sketches, etchings, drawings by Rego in its two huge rooms and some original figures here and there -a sort of dummies-. I admit that contemporary art leaves me cold most of the times, so I must say that I didn´t like much the collection nor its aesthetics. The museum, housed in a nice and original building with its pyramidal shape, is rather small, but besides the exhibition rooms there are an auditorium, shops, a good cafeteria, with a agreeable terrace ideal for a sunny afternoon and a nice garden. It can be a good cultural activity if you are exploring the area and entrance fees aren´t expensive, but I wouldn´t consider it essential for your visit in Portugal, if you are short of time.

This artist is not for everyone but if you like her then the exhibitor is superb. Well laid out and very interesting.

Some of the pictures / art on show was very dark, particularly the nursery rhymes section.
We had a ticket to visit a number of the local attractions which was a good way to see them.

Superb exhibition while we were there - loved the joyous nursery rhymes series, such fun. By contrast the FGM work was hard hitting and explicit - and so valuable for it. Every woman should see these engravings.
A good building that takes you around a square of galleries back to the entrance. Also a reasonably priced café that serves tasty food at reasonable prices. The whole place is well worth a visit and this exhibition was a must-see.
