Marvel at the extraordinary range of artworks on display at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian. Formed from the private collection of Ottoman-born oil magnate Calouste Gulbenkian (of which only about one-sixth remains on permanent exhibition), the museum houses treasures spanning East and West and including Egyptian relics, Chinese porcelain, Western masterpieces, and everything in between. After browsing the galleries of paintings, jewelry, furniture, sculptures, and more, take a stroll in the landscaped park in which the museum resides.

  • A very nice and expansive museum. The collection has works from masters such as Degas, Renoir, Monet and more. Additionally there are impressive ancient artifacts from Egypt, the Middle East, and Asia. It's a great collection that even includes rare furniture and jewelry. What's most impressive is how the museum displays everything. Nothing is crowded. Everything has space and balance. I recommend buying the All Inclusive ticket which is 14 Euros a person so that the entire museum can be explored but there are smaller price points if you are on a budget or don't have time to see everything.
  • This is without the exaggeration the best museum I've ever seen. Never before has a museum managed to show something so cripplingly boring as ancient and oriental art and paintings (I'm sorry) in such a beautiful and intriguing manner. You will feel compelled to look at every single coin displayed. The collection is vast and beautifully preserved. A truly fine experience of art.
