Serralves, Porto

(1,800+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
In a minimalist building, Serralves hosts frequently changing contemporary art exhibits. This prominent European contemporary circuit, part of the most-visited museum in Portugal, aims to bring attention to art and the fragile environment. Built on 18 hectares (44 acres) dotted with modern sculptures, the complex includes a 14-gallery museum, farmland, a shop, a bookstore, and several cafes. Use an audio guide at the museum to learn about its frequently changing exhibits and activities--there is not a single permanent exhibit at the site. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Porto holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Serralves and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Pinkish buildings and wonderful gardens, great place to take photos, relax and enjoy the nature around  more »
  • The temporary exhibition was great, the permanent collection was as ridiculous as modern art can be. Wished the tea house was open, that is such a nice concept.  more »
  • We saw signs for a free local festival so dropped in, nice park with woodland and lakes. Off the beaten track but very busy due to festival but good location and facilities. Saw a Joan Miro exhibition...  more »

  • 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!
