very large contemporary art museum, with very few works of outstanding quality-it might be interesting for people who want to go deep into Europe's struggles to embrace the US-born contemporary art, as we know it now

We found this place by accident and we were so glad we did. It's an amazing collection of modern art in a museum that's free to enter! You should not miss this place.

What a wonderful collection. So many wonderful, illustrative and high-impact pieces all in one place. Housed in a beautiful building close to many other worthy tourist attractions. Every room is so well explained in terms of how that 'movement' fits into the broader genre of modern art. Not especially crowded. And best of all, the price is right - free!... More

Beautiful art collection that is well laid out and presented. Easily our favorite art museum that we visited while in the Lisbon area. As a nice bonus entry is free. Take the Lisbon Bike Tour along the river to Belem, visit the Monastery and the Museum and then take the 15E tram back to Lisbon. A perfect day!!

If you enjoy seeing modern art in a truly spectacular, contemporary setting, be sure to visit this museum when in Portugal, as you will love it. The museum building itself is amazing, and the collection is first rate. Located in the Belem neighborhood, by the river and across from the massive and magnificent Jeronimos Monastery, the museum, even though rather... More

This is a great art museum to visit in Belem! We only checked out the 1900-1960s exhibition, with a lot of interesting work by artists as varied as Dalí, Miró, Picasso, Pollack, Liechtenstein, Warhol, and Asger Jorn. It is really impressive, especially since it's all free to visit! We went here in December, but I could imagine it would be... More

This museum is amazing. Very wide contemporary art collection over several floors. It’s free to enter (even the temporary exhibitons). Absolutely a must go when in Belèm. It’s located between the monastrary and Belèm tower. Hidden secret: at -1 they have a very cheap Nespresso machine =)

The entrance is free but that doesn't say anything about the collection, it's simply great! You can easily spend two hours here. Lots of famous artists, very spacious and not so busy (even on a sunday). Not to be missed when you visit Belem!

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood Profile
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
