    A great visit
    Wonderful experience - a beautiful museum with terrific artwork and a great staff. The cafe was EXCELLENT, and the older of the two gentlemen working there was so kind and thoughtful (I’m sure the other one was too, but we didn’t speak with him). A great time was had by all!

    Remarkable artist
    The story of her life with many tragic episodes is told on film by Paula herself. Luckily she managed to receive also fame as the outstanding red museum was built in 2009, she died in 2022. All her works are based on a story, some ancient, many modern which she first forms by dressing real people to their given roles or uses self made puppets. My first encounter with her mesmerizing art was years back in London where she studied. This pilgrimage to Cascais was most satisfying as few of her paintings can be found in Lisbon.

    Well worth popping our to Cascais for this art museum
    A relaxing train ride from Lisbon gets you to Cascais where you can leisurely stroll to the Casa Das Historias. Even if you don't know Rego's work too well, the curation of paintings, prints, drawings is diverse and well rounded. The wall panels are informative. Striking exterior architecture.

    Quick visit to the contemporary art museum
    The building and the art museum are worth a visit in Cascais. We didn't have too much time unfortunately, but had received a free voucher for all museums from our short term rental host. It is definitely worth a visit, with temporary exhibits in addition to Rego's work.

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.

The building was really beautiful and the works by Paula Rego on display were brilliant. When I visited, her 1970s work were on display.( they interchange them)
As this museum is dedicated to her work, fans of her work and surrealism will totally enjoy it.
Worth a visit.

Interesting modern building - very striking exterior. However I afraid I did not know the artists work before I visited and I wish I had researched. I found her work to be very unpleasant and I cannot I unsee some of the images. We completed the museum in about 15 minutes. It is small inside. Then we sat sat for a while in the café waiting for service that did not come despite it being very quiet with few people. So in summary if you are a fan visit - if you are just visiting the area and are curious- do your research first.

Currently closed!! Be careful if visiting in October/early November the exhibitions are closed while they change over. No information on their website shows this or on google. Their cafe and gift shop are open but nothing else.
I wish they’d have updated the website we took a whole day trip just for this. There are for some reason loads of chickens in the park it sits in so you can enjoy them if the same happens to you.

I suggest to call them first.

This a really interesting building and the day we went the machine was broken so it was free. However it doesn't host Paula Rego's best works which was a bit disappointing. There is a nice cafe which does a very reasonable lunch and you can sit the quiet garden.
