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.

We spent some quality time in this museum dedicated to fine arts. Beautiful portraits that seem to speak to you from the canvas and tell stories about Portugal, its variety and uniqueness. Came across a number of wonderful statues displayed so as to emphasize their...More

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.

At a quarter of the cost of the Fundacao Serralves this lovely museum was much more impressive. The staff were friendly and there is a nice cafe and courtyard garden. After some rather dull portraits there is some much more striking artwork on the upper...More

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

Nice museum showcasing various Portuguese artists. The 2nd floor was closed between 12nn to 3pm. Not sure if it was unusual that day. There is a small yet elegant rose garden. The cafe also serves simple meals and snacks which we enjoyed a lot. Good...More
