  • No English description. Only 1 sentence for every painting/bust. No additional information. If there is a longer text, it is only available in Portuguese. The security personal keeps following you around at arms length. There is no way to appreciate the art if you feel like a prisoner. I could not see a pattern or a system behind the structure of the museum.
  • A most fantastic art museum. Plenty of trivia and treasures from the age of discovery and colonial trinkets, a wonderful historical collection, and a most insightful XIX and XX art collection. Greatly enjoyed the exibition and totally recommend to every traveler in Porto
  • The museum has a great collection to see the Portuguese art and history. The collection has a good informations for each one and the space build is big, beautiful and has a great atmosphere. There's no information about the free entrance for the residents of Portugal and the café isn't working when I was there.
  • Interesting collection of Portuguese art in beautiful building. Lovely garden unfortunately neglected. Cafe wasn't open.
  • An amazing museum over two floors-with pop up exhibitions. Well worth a visit
