Although the internet said it was free - it is only so for permanent residents of Portugal. However, I feel fine about paying €5 to support this hidden gem of a decorative and art museum. It isn’t the biggest museum that I have been to,...More

The staff was not super nice, we almost had to insist to buy tickets. Inside the museum, there is no explanation for any objects. There is not redline and we go from statues to paintings, without any explanation. Disappointed for 5€ a single adult ticket.

Luckily, admission was free. Some of the better works could be in art galleries for sale. Most are at the level of home decorations by a talented family member.

This museum has a good collection of art and sculpture in an interesting building with a pretty garden. It is a short walk out of the city centre.

I recently visited the Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis in Porto, Portugal. Great exhibition of the artist José de Almada Negreiros entitled "Drawing in Motion." Permanent collection contains art from various European countries and more. Highly recommend a visit!

If you are interested in art, this is a museum that you must visit in Porto. You will find paintings, sculptures, glass art and furnitures. The museum also hosts interesting permanent exhibitions. The majority of the paintings are naturalist. The admission fee is reasonable (normal...More
