This museum has one of the most beautifully curated collections that I have ever seen. The choicest pieces have been chosen to tell the stories. Also, the cafeteria is well-priced with a good menu.

What a wonderfully diverse collection of art and antiquities. From ancient Egypt through to the impressionist genre. Spent over two hours strolling through this well defined exhibit. A must visit for any art lover.

The Gulbenkian is a truly extraordinary museum, much in the same venue as The Frick in NY or the Isabella Steward Gardner Museum in Boston. Calouste Gulbenkian was a fine collector, with impecable taste.
