Great collection and garden with spots to stop for an espresso during the visit. The founders collection is quite interesting and varied while the contemporary museum on site focuses on some very interesting and worthy Portuguese artists.

This is an excellent museum with great private collections. The gardens are also beautiful and you can enjoy the restaurant open air. I have been there so many times, the latest being in May for the Almada Negreiros exhibition: superb!
