Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is a private collection. There are many fine paintings and statues in this well laid out museum. There are gardens in back for walking and private reflection. Highly recommend Allow 2-3 hours

    Forget queuing for over an hour to visit the Monastery at Belem, this museum was an absolute revelation. It was so much better than we expected. Photos of the outside, and some traveller photos, simply do not do justice to the interior magnificence of the building. I think we perhaps expected single tiles or a few wall panels, but what is on show, and the considerable age of the tiles, how they have managed to survive in such good condition: just great. Also a very lovely, calm, leafy cafe area with nice food at a reasonable price. Bus 759 from Cental Lisbon stops right outside.

    I was positively shocked by the sufficient amount of exhibits on the two levels of the museum. Apart from the impressive building, the popart section was my favourite as I saw works of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Another positive thing is the price of the museum (12 euros) which was reduced on my visit to 7 euros! There’s still another gallery to open soon, so I guess when I visit Lisbon in the future I’d definitely visit this museum again.

    This is a stunning museum in the former home of an incredibly wealthy Portuguese businessman. The contents are exquisite and as it was incredibly quiet when we visited, we were able to have plenty of time to look round.

    Brilliant place. So many wonderful pieces of original furniture, design, glassware all under one roof. The staff are very friendly & knowledgeable. Our guide was perfect. Guided tours only but well worth it. The wine tasting after is worth the money alone !!!!!

    Surprising combination of art and technology. The technological part, a power plant dissected, is interesting not only for youngsters, but for everyone. Well done. The art section with Joana Vasconcelos as the main attraction is worth visiting. Portuguese artists are not so well known unfortunately.

    Beautifully presented collections set in a dark surrounding! Stunning display. Loved the tableware display in particular and the enormous gold nuggets from Brasil. Nice way of displaying the history of Portugal along a timeline at the start. It is just a shame the cafe was not open when we visited.

    This museum offers one of the rare chances in Lisbon for visitors to explore the interior of a former historical mansion (albeit a heavily restored one). Owned by a foundation dedicated to the furtherance of traditional material crafts, the museum abounds in magnificent examples of furniture-making, weaving and the like, assembled in tasteful, coherent fashion; while few pieces are actually from the house itself, all reflect the period of its original occupancy. Only guided tours are offered, and while docents stick to a pre-arranged script, all are knowledgeable and generous in answering questions.

    It was very quiet in the museum, only 5-6 people at a time. Very pleasant visit. I recommend to take time 1+ hours to read what’s behind each of the Banksy’s amazing work.

    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.

    If you are in the area (it is close to the Marionette Museum, which is WELL worth a visit), I would definitely recommend stopping by. It’s a small place that displays Pomar’s art. We didn’t really know anything about this artist before visiting, but enjoyed our short visit very much. The building itself is also worth seeing.

    My daughter and I really enjoyed this art museum. We spent well over an hour enjoying the two main exhibits on the first level as well as the exhibit showcasing some up and coming artists on the upper level. The building lends itself to some great photo opportunities, especially if you are fond of hallways.

    The area around the Biaxa-Chiado metro station can sure be a swarm to the senses. This gallery was a needed respite from the crowds, noise and hot sun. There is also a pottery store near by which is a bonus reason to visit.

    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.

    We have dropped in to the gallery many times and have always had a wonderful experience. The emphasis is on Portuguese art. The range of art we experienced was superb.
    Take the short detour off the Avenue and drop in. The excellent Cinema Museum is practically across the street.
