  • Definitely a hidden gem! Both the house and its contents merit the detour, as the Michelin Guides used to say. We don't usually like guided tours but we had no choice - and just as well, because we would have failed to understand so much without our guide. She was full of quiet enthusiasm for her subject and made heroic struggles to get it across to us in English. We knew nothing of the artist prior to our visit, we just enjoy seeing works of art and hoped to find something a little different here.. We certainly got that, but we also gained insight into the life and works of one who was clearly a great artist. And as a special bonus, we got to see a painting by Amadeo de Souza Cardoso - our very favourite Portuguese artist!
  • At the time we visited, on the Esplanade just served sausages and cheese, but have a good space for children to play

  • A small jewel hidden in the city of Gaia, this museum is well worth a visit.

  • Without doubt a museum to visit. A vast work of great artist Teixeira Lopes, whose work is not entrusted only to sculpture. The House itself and a work of art, being designed by your brother the renowned architect José Teixeira Lopes who left a vast work, and nominate, lesser-known works, and by way of example, the mansion of the n Street 321 do Bonfim in Porto. It is a shame that this Museum and these great artists have not yet entered in tours with the recognition that it deserves and that disclosure of this authentic jewel is still short of the desirable, this to the detriment of those who do not know and so do not visit. Visit very, very, very recommended!
