    Worth A Visit, this museum is nicely laid out in a single storey on extensive grounds, except that the cafe and some facilities are downstairs. The private collection that has been donated contains some works that you will be seeing for the first time in person. Lots of museums in Lisbon, but this one might not be on some short lists.

    This place was just beautiful. We enjoyed every inch of the place. When you arrive you walk into a pretty courtyard with orange trees and birds singing.

    Inside, the collection of tiles and a few other bits and bobs were superb. There's just something about tiles for me so I had to come here.

    An added joy was the beautiful church that is part of the complex. Absolutely stunning.

    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.

    Like being in a dream!

    Everything was so beautiful and thoughtfully put together. I went alone and I was pretty much alone in every room it was amazing. Can’t recommend it more!

    Random random random. Felt like I was tripping the whole way round. Not what I expected. Quirky neon modern art installations. Not suitable if epileptic. Interesting info about the power station. If you are very into quirky modern art and a deep thinker you'll probably like it!

    Widely regarded as one of the best museums in all of Portugal, this museum is actually 2 buildings in an 18.5 acre park, easily accessible via the blue (azul) Metro line (Sao Sebastio stop). The Founder’s Collection includes works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Renoir, Monet, Degas, Manet, van Ruisdael, Cassatt and Gainsborough. The Modern Collection is considered to be the most complete collection of modern Portuguese art in the world. Admission is 10 euros, 50% reduction for ages 65+ (better than the discount offered by the Lisbon Card). The museum offers free WiFi and you can download and use a free guide to the collections on the Gulbenkian Museum App (free). Tip: Admission is free on Sundays from 2pm on.

    We wanted to see this when it was in Dulwich, London, but not entirely sure if it was the same one. It was great! Being a maths teacher and taking my 6 year old, we loved seeing the whole story of Escher and especially the mathematically impossible drawings! A great exhibition. The gift shop was a tad limited though.

    The museum is a solid visit. The decor and layout are beautiful and the artifacts make the turn spent worthwhile. The entire visit takes about 1 hour.

    Interesting small museum that not a lot of people know. It had free entrance (I dont know if it is always like this or just because of the reopening of the museums) so I went there. I did not know Santo Antonio was Portuguese. There was information about him, his life and how he is worshipped through the world. I think they could explain more how he became the patron of weddings and how there are so many beliefs that he finds you a husband. This would have been interesting.

    One of the wonderful things about a longer stay in a city like Lisbon is having the time to visit small galleries and museums such as this one.
    It was a mixed review of the exhibit we saw and that is the downside of smaller places. There is not a great span of material so you like or dislike the show.
    Worth to see if your have time to spend. If you are here for a week. If you are here for a few days go to the Gulbenkian.
