Museu Calouste Gulbenkian reviews
CLOSED till 2022 other part and gardens open but modern art museum closed review refers to precious visit more »
The permanent collection pertaining to Calouste Gulbenkian is definitely valuable and worth being visited. The rooms displaying articrafts from Egypt, Persia and Turkey, as well as the Oriental room..... more »
A very intriguing, wide range of artworks from Egyptian dynasties to contemporary art from around the world. The pieces are as interesting as the man who has collected them. Strongly recommend that you pay a little visit there if you are in Lisbon for a few days. Also the museum Cafe is great as well.
Very well presented and interesting works in the original collection - all in superb buildings. The modern art exhibition was much less interesting. Friendly staff. At the time we visited (January) not at all crowded. Easy to get to via metro.
