  • very interesting tour of this museum. Little world because everyone probably would rather go to the convent of the Jerónimos, which is not. However, this visit is worth a visit. A true pleasure for our eyes. A without hesitation!

  • I was on the fence about visiting this museum based on the reviews I'd read about it which were very mixed. But decided to because my husband really wanted to go. In retrospect I was really happy we went! The museum itself is in this huge complex and was much larger and better organized than we'd anticipated. One thing I really loved about it was that artwork was organized chronologically into interesting collections with contextual information included in each gallery. It was the perfect way to display these works for someone who's interested in learning more about the history of modern art and the various sub-movements by country. Others have complained that many of the works are lesser known works by major artists...but for me I found that aspect enlightening. We've visited a lot of art museums around the world and viewed many artists major works. But viewing their lesser known works was, I felt, really educational. I left with a better appreciation of several artists I thought previously I'd known enough about. I was also really impressed with their sections of Portuguese artists and the entire floor dedicated to Brazilian artwork. That floor alone was really amazing! Both the exhibit space and the artwork included were wonderful. If you love modern art this museum is well worth your time to visit!
  • I love modern art so I jumped at the chance to visit Museu Colecao Berardo. The galleries are beautiful and hold some of the greatest works of art from the last 150 years or so. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful setting. If you're in Lisbon, I strongly recommend you visit.
  • We saw a number of incredible exhibits, and the best part was it was free on the Saturday when we visited. There were mobs of people visiting the monestary across the street, but the museum was much less busy. Highly recommended.
  • It was an amazing collection of modern and contemporary art with all the famous painters. The exhibit I liked the most was called "no place like Home.
  • This is an impressive building just across from the Tagus river with an extraordinary collection of contemporary art. Due to the vastness of the interior space, each piece can be enjoyed from the distance it should be, especially the larger works and sculptures. The grounds are also impressive. Not sure if all Saturdays are free, but when we went, it was. Check in advance. The life of this incredible man from humble beginnings is also extraordinary. Lots of fun things to do in the area. We spent about 2 hours inside.
