Wonderful collection beautifully presented. This was a real highlight of our trip and is not to be missed. Don't forget to ask for pensioner's rates if you're over 65!

This museum does not have an extensive collection, but what they have is really excellent. The Moorish art (rugs, pottery, tiles, etc.) is outstanding. Everything comes from a private collection. Mr. Gulbenkian was Turkish, and he really knew the good stuff.

This museum has such good quality pieces that start years B.C. and go into current times. The most amazing thing to us was how perfect the pieces were-especially the porcelain and pottery items. We are used to seeing old pieces which are cracked or chipped...More
