The area
Address
Neighborhood: Belém
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.

This is a brand new and very large art museum with all the contemporary artists you know and lots of masterpieces. Large and beautiful display space, never feels crowded. Beautiful garden with sculpture and views of Belem. Good food venues.

I find that modern art galleries tend to be hit or miss, but Museu Colecao Berardo is definitely a hit. I would recommend anyone visiting Lisbon to go here. The entrance fee was €5, with a 50% discount for over 65s and under 18s.

We were impressed with the collection and the curation - this is a fantastic museum for anyone, even if you are not really into art. It's a fantastic introduction to modern art - with excellent descriptions of the history of constructivism, dadaism, surrealism, ...and so on. Really enjoyable and worth visiting.

3 tours in 3 days: Belem with Beatrice, Centre with Yuri and Alfama with Maggie. All good, informative. More experienced guides seem to pace the walks well, give good info about major sites and point out interesting things along the way. I’m sure if we took the same tour over with different guides we would learn new things.

Beatrice was the newest and it was apparent. She ran long, dragged on and though she was eager, she was not the exuberant performer that most guides seem to be - it wasn’t her style. Yuri & Maggie were balls of energy and eager to educate & entertain. I’d go again. We paid €10 pp and that seemed to be what others did. It’s worth the risk. We didn’t leave any of them early.

Always a requirement to state I’m not an art aficionado by any means. I didn’t really know the significance of a lot of what was in the gallery initially. However, the exhibits are very well labelled and quite aesthetically interesting even without a critical eye. Besides, the girlfriend did an art degree so a few of the core pieces she’d actually studied were clearly highlights that I got some free additional info on. Turns out the soup can is a big deal!

A well organized museum with a good flow and elaborate description of each era of art. Although there are no seats provided, I personally don’t feel the need to sit down... Every room has it’s own experience and you’ll definitely want to go on to the next one !

Been to this museum just a week ago. Excellent collection that is displayed on rotation - from Picasso to Warhol and going past Dali and Rivera and other modern/contemporary big names. Most of the space is dedicated to temporary exhibitions - as always with contemporary art it depends on personal taste - the ones' available during my visit were very good standard, even if one was just not my thing...
Time well spent if into modern/contemporary art.
Free entrance and open 7 days.

My wife and I visited the museum on a whim as we walked the streets of Belem. I had read a few things in our travel book about it but nothing prepared me for the size and scale of the collection of modern art contained within this beautiful building. We are both graphic designers so we were first struck by the care and thoughtfulness all the art was presented with. Unlike most world class museums we've visited there was hardly anyone there so we could take our time as we wondered from room to room. I know a little about modern art but the curated permanent collection gave me a new appreciation for the artists I didn't know about before and had me enraptured with lesser known works of the luminaries of modern art. This place deserves every accolade and should be on a must see list of every art lover.

This museum (with free entrance!!!) has a wonderful collection, which is broad and very interesting in terms of artists, styles and periods, in a great space. Directly outside you also have lovely areas for a deserved rest and some nice food. It's truly enriching to a visit to our lovely city of Lisbon. Children will love it to!

Finding the entrance is the initial challenge to this huge modern Lisbon waterfront building. The collect rambles into rooms and hallways on two levels. Most is temporary exhibits. some are far out but some are fabulous. they are video, inflatable, painted, on the floor, and walk thru maize. the permanent collection is limited to maybe 4 rooms. there is a detailed 'genealogy' of modern art on a wall with fairly good examples on the surrounding space. there is a dark room with small lights that create a maize. it was Sunday, there were many children and families having a great time. the cafeteria is fine and has a view to the river. we were frequently lost but in general it was fun, definitely different and therefore worth the effort.
