This museum is spectacular. The Lalique collection alone is a wonderful discovery. The wooden floors are especially spongey and easy on your feet and legs--unlike marble-floored museums that can tire you out quickly.

A spectacular collection that spans many countries and over many millennia, but compact enough to be enjoyed in one visit. Each item is first rate with good display and interpretation. Two Rembrandts. Another bonus, the museum is seldom crowded so you can enjoy the art....More

Surrounded by pretty grounds, the museum is architecturally interesting and houses a first-class, world-class exhibit of paintings, sculpture, archeological artifacts, and related art (furniture, clothing and cloth goods). I didn't see any post-20th Century art, and that's fine - there are other museums covering modern...More

This museum has a unique eclectic collection brought together by the enormously rich Gulbenkian. If your thing is Japanese laque or Lalique, you will find it. Do not forget the beautiful gardens and the modern Portuguese section. Easily spent two hours.

Turner, Monet, Renoir,Manet, a painting like "Lady and Child Asleep in a Punt under the Willows" by John Singer Sargent is a pure beauty as well as"The reading" by Henri Fantin-Latour... It is certainly not to be missed.

This is the collection of a man who had an eye for beautiful things. It is a small to medium size museum that is a little out of the way. The four of us took a taxi and it worked out very well. The gardens...More
