  • For years I lived near the Serralves Museum, where I used to go regularly to the Museum wants to visit exhibitions, study in the cafeteria or simply strolling through the gardens. I strongly recommend that you visit the Museum for fantastic experience in an architecturally modern and innovative, surrounded beautiful green spaces. Always interesting exhibitions and beautiful presents. The price of the ticket may seem expensive but worth it.

  • We took a detour on the way to the coast. It wasn't obvious how to get to the only open gate (it was on the corner of a one way street so you need to go round the block, but there is plenty of free pa...  more »
  • The Serralves Foundation, an institution that houses the Serralves Museum, is located in a former private property of a very wealthy family of the region. Devote at least a morning or an afternoon off, to get to know this is one of the leading institutes dedicated to the arts in Europe. There are some very interesting exhibitions and a garden filled with beautiful trees, plants and many discoveries. The proposal is "like" with the Institute Inhotim, Minas Gerais (Brazil), despite being infinitely less than the Brazilian space. The visit to this museum is one of the main attractions of the port and will transform your trip into a typically ride albiegamer (name of those who are born in the port). Is a program not to be missed!

  • One of the greatest location to visit in Porto, great gardens for a walk and a lot of seasonal activities and celebration like Autumn Party, Serralves em Festa.
  • How boring. Museum is nice but the garden is not very interesting and it is a difficult place to get to. If you live the red tour buses then it's easier to get to but still not with it.
  • The museum holds a nice exhibition but the gardens are what are totally worth. They are great. Free entrance on sunday mornings.
  • Fantastic place
  • Both museum and the park are absolutely worth it on sundays. There's free entrance on that day until 1pm!
