The Berardo is a beautiful museum with a large collection of modern art. It is free to the public and the collection is housed in a gorgeous contemporary building. Don't miss the fantastic sculptures outside too.

This gallery is part of an impressive modern building complex in Belém, and has three floors. The lower floors have temporary collections and the upper floor the permanent Bernardo collection. Especially for the temporary exhibitions you need to be more of a modern art aficionado...More

Spent the morning wandering around Museu Berardo with my boy friend, really impressed with the collection on display and couldn't believe it was 100% free. We only had a short stay in Lisbon and are happy we visited Museu Colecao Berardo over the Chiado Museum.

The warm sunny day we visited Belém was almost too beautiful to spend inside a museum, but we were so glad we decided to visit Museu Colecção Berado. The museum, attached to Belém's cultural center, is a gift from Portugal's largest art collector (and billionaire)...More

Great pieces of art, but the best part was the educational aspect: the art is arranged by school (cubism, etc.) with a detailed explanation of the sociohistorical context of each, including how it was a reaction toward earlier schools of modern art. Hence, you develop...More

Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries"

visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of
restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and

Just take the streetcar to the very end (Jeronimos Monastery) then walk 200m farther west. It's an imposing modern building.
