The museum was recommended by our son. After a week of wet and windy weather we were very glad just to get out. After a bit of a mix up we found ourselves on a one to one tour. The tour guide’s English was excellent and her knowledge of the sculptor and his life and work was also excellent. What we believe was to have been a half hour or so ended up as a fascinating hour.

The museum property and many exhibits was donated to Vila Nova de Gaia by Snr Lopez. He was also the first curator of his own museum. It is absolutely fascinating to see the transition from the very formal style of mid 19th century sculpture to late 19th century/early 20th century sculpture, but still in the classical style before the advent of modern styles. The attention to detail of Lopez is a tribute to his skill. Having studied in Paris he moved the bohemian artistic world to Porto.

Definitely worthy a visit at any time, but if you can avoid peak season your experience will be much enhanced. Getting back to the Douro waterfront is but a 20 minute downhill walk. Unless you have mobility issues just walk back down the hill. The garden is also full of fascinating work. The collection is always being added to and is not set in aspic. Look out for extra curricular events during the year.

Attracted by the positive reviews and by casa-museums in general, I decided to visit this incredible place. It resulted in one of the best moments of the trip.

Despite not knowing the artist Teixera Lopes before, thanks to the guided tour (I was the only one, so a private tour: many thanks to the very knowledgeable lady providing so interesting explanations) combined with being in the actual house he lived and worked, I could get a very good overview of the works of such a talented artist.

The overall atmosphere in the casa-museum is so positive, the result of art, architecture, literature, music is magic.

Definitely a hidden gem.

Free entrance, compulsory guided tour ( fixed schedule), no photos allowed inside the building.

Any one in this area should visit this museum. We arrived at 11.30am on Saturday morning. Didn't realise the museum closed at 12 noon. The wonderful guide gave up her time to take us on a guided tour. Raquel Martino is one of the best guides we have ever had. She obviously loves the museum, A T Lopes(wherever you are)your house is in very good hands. The whole story of Antonio Lopes and his fantastic paintings and sculptures comes alive. Through time the place has been filled with famous actors, opera singers and artists. All have contributed to the atmosphere of this place. The statues, I can hardly call them statues because they are so lifelike, their magnificent presence brings tears to your eyes. As you see Antonio Lopes and his familys fantastic contribution to culture and society. What a marvellous man
We were recommended to come here by the owner of Donna Gertrude in Porto and cant thank him enough.
It is a little out of the way from downtown Porto, where we were staying. We walked it took about an hour, but came back past Taylors Port Winery. Much quicker.
Many thanks to the fabulous Raquel Martino, and thanks for giving up her precious time. She would not let us pay her or accept a donation saying it was all part of her job. She went out of her way to take us on a journey we will never forget. Lynn and Mike Dunn

I had know idea what an incredible small museum this place was until the wonderful guide gave a personal tour of the place. There are amazing pieces of art, furniture, sculture and glasswork in a fascinating historic building. It is a shame more folks don't know about this hidden gem that is very close to the metro stop and the El Cortes Ingles store.

Wow, what a relaxing, exquisite home ‘far from the madding crowd’ of Portuguese-famous Antonio Teixeira Lopes. Serbian multilinguist, Alexandra, our tour guide, made it all come alive with a commentary that kept us fabulously informed & waiting for more. Get outa that awful hop on hop off bus and make the effort to schlep up the hill (or cheat and take the metro, hopping out at Camera de Gaia for a big, fat 1.50 euros one way), it was one of the most adorable & informative hourlong tours we did in our 12 days in Porto. The statues will dwarf you and his artistic talent will tantalise you (ask about his personal life too, quite a hedonist, knocking about with nobility). What a guy, then he gave the whole flippin’ house away to Gaia’s City Council for nicks. And for this, you get to walk in the front door and partake of his amazing home for free - a gift beyond description.

One of the greatest portuguese sculpture artists lends his name to this museum. It also houses the collection of Diogo Macedo. A great artist himself and Art Lover. Because of him you can admire the only Modigliani in Portugal. Great to visit. In the center of Vila Nova de Gaia, minutes away from the Port Wine Cellars.

A little off the beaten track but not far - probably a 10 minute walk up from the riverfront at Vila Nova de Gaia and well worth the effort. I would guess it's not high on many tourist's 'must see' list so is quiet. We had a personal tour for the 3 of us with a lady who didn't speak too much English but it was enough. There were plenty of sculptures - from small personal pieces to large "church sized" ones, most were the original plaster models and some were bronze. Also of interest was seeing a wealthy person's house from the late 19th century with lots of paintings, furniture and personal belongings. We were there for approx 40 minutes, it's free and a tour is mandatory. They have lockers for bigger bags as you aren't allowed to take them with you.

Lovely atmosphere at this special house. We had a personal tour of the works and paintings contained therein and provided with loads of information. The sculptures are varied in style and size and include many Portugese works. The visit was an intimate insight into the history of this home.

The home and colllection of sculptor Antonio Teixeira Lopes (1866-1942)
Amazing collection of art - sculpture, painting, porcelain, ... and furniture from the XIX century.
Also Galleries dedicated to Modernists and XX century art.
A small and quiet garden to rest and give a rest to children.
The guided visit is manadtory but, as such, your can have a tailor-made experience - in terms of content and lenght of the tour..
A must-see when visiting Porto.
Note:
A bus stop very close. Also for the sightseeing bus.
Coming from Porto, you can by metro: Line D - "Camara de Gaia" stop and walk 5 minutes in a stright line.
Very nice people. Recommended: Raquel.
