Only a short bus ride out of the city centre ( we used bus route 201) and this place will give you at least a half day of art and architecture based activity. The contemporary art museum is a fabulous building but the exhibitions are...More

Lovely modernist buildings, well curated exhibitions and huge sculpture garden. You can easily spend a whole day at this place. The gallery has several exhibitions. During my visit there was an excellent exhibit focusing on a lot of 60 and 70's stuff, fluxus, action art,...More

I stopped off here on one of the guided bus tours so was easy to get to for me, but probably a little out of town to walk to, but nearly all the your buses go this way and I'm sure local buses do too....More

We greatly enjoyed walking the extensive grounds here, which have varied trees and shrubs, and are immaculately kept. The museum building is impressive, but we found the art therein much less so.

Despite how sharp and modern the building seems, the exhibitions that were happening were somewhat disappointing. Not just because it was a bit too abstract to my liking but the galleries seemed way too empty and loose. The park was a nice distraction though.

Set in the beautiful grounds of an Art Deco mansion, the gallery is housed in a wonderfully designed modern building that gives a wonderful feeling of space - ideal for presenting a stimulating range of modern art. Captions are in English as well as Portuguese...More

We had a great time inside the museum and walking through the park. There is also a nice cafe close to the rose garden

Had a wonderful afternoon browsing great pieces of art both indoors and outdoors. Relaxing and interesting. The lighting in the library was magical. Huge park and with many different experiences. Highly recommended.

The modern art gallery was good, however we enjoyed the grounds more. Stunning pink Art Deco house and lots of space to walk around. Well worth the visit.
