  • I visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was great. It has beautiful carvings, are well distributed and organized. The building though beautiful is a little bad. I think something with cultural value size should have a more careful maintenance.

  • This was recommended by our guest house. Surprisingly, interesting, different styles, painting, ceramics, chinese kunstvoorwepen ... Older works, but also contemporary input through school projects, music training. Nice concert. You can feel free to spend a few hours.

  • Magnificent permanent collection, with strong ties to the city's history. Outdoor gardens although great, could be better well kept.
  • Great temporary expo of Amadeo Souza Cardoso work. Nice garden.
  • €5 it cost, I thought it was very reasonable. Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed it and the price came with two exhibitions aswell.
  • Good medium sized museum with beautiful paintings and craft works. There needs to be more emphasis on having information translated to English for foreign visitors.
  • A good small sized museum. Has As the masterpieces of Soares dos Reis. Focus in sculpture
