Marvel at the extraordinary range of artworks on display at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian. Formed from the private collection of Ottoman-born oil magnate Calouste Gulbenkian (of which only about one-sixth remains on permanent exhibition), the museum houses treasures spanning East and West and including Egyptian relics, Chinese porcelain, Western masterpieces, and everything in between. After browsing the galleries of paintings, jewelry, furniture, sculptures, and more, take a stroll in the landscaped park in which the museum resides.

  • Love this place, whether it's to see a live music performance, read a book on the green grass or see the latest art exhibition; all my trips to Lisbon imply a visit at least once to FCG! 
  • a Museum of incredible wealth and the extraordinary story of one who is at the origin. A must join your program.

  • Very interesting the Promenade concert .... too bad it was so crowded that it was impossible to see the musicians. The Museum is spectacular with very interesting and very well taken care of.

  • Donated to Portugal by Calouste Gulbenkian for granting him amnesty during WW2, this collection contains select pieces from five thousand years of human history. Designed to flow through its entirety with ease unlike some museums. Great collection. Easily the best museum in Lisbon Great gardens as well
  • Excelente museu, com uma excelente colecção.
  • Very nice collection and very well presented. From Egyptian art and Persian carpets to Rubens, Rembrandt and Monet... it's all there. The adjacent park alone is worth a visit. The building is also really nice.
  • I just love this beautiful and calm garden in the heart of Lisbon. The museum is great as well, but I go there for the garden.
  • Free entry for the Museum on Sunday after 2pm, amazing collection and beautiful garden. Totally worth a visit!
