A lot of minor artists and the few famous (a haunting Saint Anton, one van Dyke, the extraordinary triptic of Hyeronimus Bosch) are taken from the Gulbenkian Foundation. For art lovers the Gulbenkian should be the first stop and this only the additional visit.

I liked most the triptych of the Temptation of St. Anthony by Hieronymus Bosch and the Arte Nanban about the “Southern barbarians”. The Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga is an art museum in Lisbon. The European painting section of the museum is significant with many...More

Very nice museum, easy to access from the train line to Belem. The collection starts on the third floor with some of the oldest pieces of Portuguese art and goes down to the European section that includes a famous Bosch. Very nice place!

Easy to access by bus or tram and a museum of modest scale so about an hour or so of not so serious wandering on 3 floors. The Portuguese selection is nicely balanced by a small European section. The guest piece, a Canaletto, simply knocked...More

There are a few amazing pieces worth seeing if you like religious art from 15-1700s. Walked through in about 90 minutes. Not really into the decorative or oriental art, so spent most of the time on the first floor, though some nice pieces on 3rd...More
