A fundamental site in Lisbon's cultural life. A must visit garden and museum. Spend some time admiring the beautiful building.
The Caloste Gulbenkian Foundation's Museums house an amazing permanent collection of paintings, sculptures, furniture and relics, as well as interesting temporary expositions. The park is definitely worth a visit or a stroll with friends or family.
Been visiting the foundation since I was a young boy and it's an inspiring place! A must see in Lisbon.
Fantastic architecture. It may feel quant to some since it is in the 1950ies modern style. But the whole place has a fantastic atmosphere and is done so well that one cannot help but like it. The exhibit spaces are very nice - spacious and welcoming. The temporary exhibit - themed on mirrors in art - was well curated. The permanent exhibit has objects and arts from the etruscans to 20th century but two Rembrandts and two Turners make it all worth while.
One of the most amazing museum i have visited in my life. Fantastic collection, from antiquity to 21st century. BUt what really amazed me the most is the way these objects are displayed in a simple and harmonious way. In some museums it is very easy to be overwhelmed by the number of displayed objects where as here, you can just appreciate each one of the pieces displayed.
