  • 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
