For some unfathomable reason this fantastic museum does not get the coverage it deserves in the guide books and we almost missed it! Perhaps it's because Lisbon is dripping in history that the modern art world is overlooked. But if you like contemporary, modern art do not miss this museum. It has a great permanent collection spanning almost the entire... More

The collection and the building itself are things to be seen. Also enjoy the view from the museum cafe over the Tejo river

We had gone to Belem to see the Museum of Popular Arte over the road from this place and to go to the Gulbenkian. The museum over the road was closed and derelict and we never got to the Gulbenkian. This place is worth seeing and is easy to get to from central Lisbon using a variety of trams or... More

this is considered by experts a really good collection of modern art; I find some interesting items, but this is not my cup of tea...the exhibition area is great, some of the mostly painting works are indeed inspiring!

This is an enormous museum, almost a town in itself. The collection of 20th century art is impressive and well curated. Too much to take in all at one go, but interesting to see the way art developed and the relationship between the different artistic movements. Will return one day.

I love art and this Museum did not disappoint. I am currently pursuing an art degree and I found the works here so perfectly organized by movements in art history. I am a big fan of James Turrell and it was so refreshing visiting his light installation and being able to stay in the space for as long as you... More

There are perhaps not many world famous masterpieces here,but the intelligent idea of displaying them in chronological order gives an extraordinary picture of the development of modern art

I'm not one of those people who spends hours in a museum, but I do like to visit and take a gander. Myself and a few friends recently wandered through this museum. It's rather large in terms of footprint, and the artwork is not crowded inside. We made our way through in about an hour - it could take considerably... More

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.
