Marvel at the extraordinary range of artworks on display at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian.

After browsing the galleries of paintings, jewelry, furniture, sculptures, and more, take a stroll in the landscaped park in which the museum resides.

  • Exceptional collection, old pottery, paintings, old jewelry, tapestries, of beautiful antiques, not to be missed under any circumstances if you are staying in Lisbon! Cherry on the cake, a cafeteria with excellent pastries served in a dream setting, a garden even in the month of December!

  • Looking at the collection he has accumulated during his lifetime... For those who are interested... He could just as well be donated to museums...

  • Just tremendous. From ancient Assyrian alabaster reliefs to modern sculpture with everything in between. Well constructed collection with little filler and some fantastic works given the space they need. If it was possible to describe this place in words we wouldn't need art! Blown away by this
  • 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
  • Free on Sunday after 14:00. You will find a very nice collection of old and modern art in two nice modern buildings. The collector seemed to have a good taste because he only collected the best of the best from all ages.
  • Gulbenkian is a center for art, culture, science and all fantastic artistic expositions and traditional and classic music concerts. Very unique building and landscape design . Very calm and full of peace place. A must see place. I highly recommend.
  • Great museum. Sadly visited on a day when there were groups of school children and their teachers who monopolised art works, in particularly the whole Rene Lalique room making it almost impossible for other visitors to view the works.
