  • There is a great collection here in a beautiful building. The city is justly proud that Mr. Gulbenkian left his money and collection here as a great asset to the city. Plan to spend the good part...

  • 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.
  • It’s a nice museums, not too crowded. On Sundays the entry is free in the afternoon, which is great. They have some nice events, such as concerts and workshops. But if you want to go to those book ahead, because on the same day it was sold out :(
