  • From the nearest underground surprisingly complicated and had a hard time. Because it was interested in European art was deeply appreciate the picture of the Impressionist school, such as Netherlands paintings of Rembrandt and Rubens, Monet and renovating. Had Japan Makie it seems was lent Ukiyo-e.

  • An absolute highlight of our short breaks in Lisbon was the visit of the Gulbenkian Museum, which is located with its buildings and sculptures in a small park. Both the art of times long past and modernity is worth a visit in any case.

  • Very nice Museum, rich in works of various types and perfect for break and vary the usual routes of Lisbon. Nice Park around and suggested a walk back towards the Baixa to enjoy the most out of the way as Parque Eduardo VII-Marquês de Pombal square-Praça dos Restauradores.

  • 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.
