  • no interest. Only the prison presnete visit some interest. This is probably due to the exhibition which was in vogue at the moment!

  • Very little to see because of work. It would be better to close it during this time. And. Final

  • The building was under construction and for that part of the building was off-limits. The exhibition was at the time also was quite weak, being the kind of art that I find it hard to understand, but I will keep my opinion free of these facts. The building is quite beautiful and would be much more interesting if we could get more info on the history, maybe even told in photo, since the same is completely ignored. The areas to visit are frankly small given the size of the building (and not to the works as they were just a front lower) I was under the impression that the space could be much better spent. The part of free entry is practically the only positive point. In short, it is worth visiting, but with the lowest priority. The visit takes about 10-15 min.

  • A calm visit, not too much to see but very nicely remodeled for visitors and completely free entrance, though bits of the museum don't have much translation. They have a lovely and small photography library with Internet which is a really nice place to sit and look at photography books. Can highly recommend Great Photographers of LIFE magazine :)
  • Cool building but was under a lot of construction and wasn't a ton to see. Not much English translations but free so definitely worth a quick stop.
  • This former prison is now a museum of photography. The price is right--free! And the photos span from the earliest times of photography in Porto. Truly remarkable.
  • Good exhibit in a cool building. The top floor is worth a quick visit for the views from its windows.
  • A place to visit for photography lovers. Also, it's a nice way to know this old prison.
