  • Nice museum with an special exposition! We had also lunch there and it was very good
  • Good renovated museum. Likes the exhibits
  • I wasn't impressed with the ceramics but the painting and sculpture exhibitions were really inspiring. FREE ON THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH!!!
  • Quite dissapointed of its collection. It has some good collection, but most of them are not really interesting comparing to Paris' or Londons'. It has a small garden, which takes just one minute to look around. I think this museum is not 'Must visit' even for museum fans.
  • A great place to visit if you're in Porto
