A short walk between the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos and the Torre Belem, this is certainly worth the time it takes to check out and observe samples of the various genres in modern art and includes works from many representatives, including some well-known ones such as Andy Warhol. It is free, too. Unfortunately we did not have time to check out... More

Having visited several times the Casa das Mudas in Madeira, with Berardo's collection I would not skip this Museum. It is great, huge variety of art as from 1900, from all over the world. Not to be missed.

The history surrounding this art museum and the fact that Barardo gave all these excellent pieces of art back to the city is a beautiful tale! The museum is free and has multiple levels to explore. I didn't have alot of time, so just saw a few sections. Dali's lobster phone and excellent Andy Warhol all form part of the... More

I visited this wonderful museum early in the morning and was the only tourist in the Berardo Collection museum. Great - no crowds. Please consider the idea of an early AM visit. The galleries had some famous (Pollock, Francis and so on), inspiring and downright "wild" art. I was challenged throughout my visit.

The galleries were spacious, good lighting and the art works were well displayed in an uncluttered way. A brilliant array of artists. We all enjoyed it all very much but particularly liked the exhibits in the basement, many of which are on an impressively large scale. Lovely building and pleasant garden. Helpful staff. A pity that the gallery shop doesn't... More

This museum is an excellent overview of modern art, well organized and with diverse, well chosen examples. The huge Chagall is a must see. The roof top gardens are lovely as well. Don't miss the amazing example of street art (by @vhils i believe) visible from the roof just west of the museum. And even better, the museum is free.

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.
