It happens not often to find somebody who had money and a good taste for art. And then to give it to Lisbon for public display is even rarer. Seeing the permanent exposition of Gulbenkian is the prime example of all the 3 ingredients. One...More

The permanent collection has to be seeen to be believed. Can one imagine Callouste to prowl the rooms searching for mood to enjoy the European painting, perhaps the Persian, the Chinese art...? It is the result of one man collecting these exhibits that stuns the...More

This institution made more for culture in Portugal than all Ministeries put together. It was - still is - the ultimate bearer of fine arts, decade after decade, cultivating higher civilizational values through culture, never compromising. Pure excellence.

After seeing so many castles on this visit, we decided to see this museum. We are so glad we did! The paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jade, furniture were incredible. The grounds are also lovely. Can't believe that one person owned so much beauty!

The gallery/museum has many different disolays at any time, so there is normally something for everyone. Many valuable and well known exhibits whilst I was there. I would go again as well, because it will no doubt have changed.

Not only is the permanent collection of the Gulbenkian of very high quality, offering something interesting for different tastes, but the building itself and the surrounding garden are a must as well! Don't miss this.

No, you cloud find a permanent exhibition of the works of the painter Paula Rego in the House of Stories in Cascais, which was built for this purpose.
