Grounds are also very nice, but not worth trip uptown unless you're headed there anyway. Gulbenkian Foundation does a lot for Portugal's art legacy, but the permanent collection in this museum is rather tame. Special exhibits are more compelling. You also get admission to the...More

Wandered in on a rainy Saturday and really had a great time looking at history - the artifacts, paintings, furniture and story lines were fantastic. A great activity.

From ancient Egyptian artifacts to 19th century famous paintings. A very diverse collection and all kept in immaculate condition. Wouldn't like to be person who polishes the silver! A highlight of our weekend.

The collection is amazing. The garden around the museum is also great with a lot of different birds, really beautiful. Don't forget to book your tickets online (we booked on TourScanner) to skip the line. I totally recommend it!
