This is officially considered to be Lisbon’s most important museum. Housed in a 17th century palace are priceless Portuguese art and religious art paintings. The museum was founded in 1884. The collection is mostly from the 14th through 19th centuries of Portuguese art; a smattering of other European Art; 16th century Japanese art; a collection of Chinese ceramics; and a small jewellery collection. Altogether there are about 60 rooms of treasures.
Right behind the museum is another treat – a sculpture garden. It overlooks the Tagus River for some nice views. There’s a cafe.

Very good and professional staff makes this museum a special. All i saw was amazing and very good. Very useful place of this museum give you possibility very fast visit it on your way to job or to home. All persons of staff very kind and available for requests personally. I recommend this museum for really interesting resting.
Just stunning. There is a depth of history here that can be gawked at for hours. I got tired after a hot walk there and the cultural exposure but there were benches to sit on and admire the art which was nice. Not to mention it is free;)
Great gallery with lots of antiques. Quite quiet when we went which was really nice. Couldn't the photos. But here's our coffee break 🤣
The staff-member, at the front desk, wasn’t particularly helpful regarding purchasing a ticket; explaining what the ticket permits me to do. That aside, I’d highly recommend visiting this museum. Also, if time permits, eat at the cafeteria. I had duck rice and I also had some kind of cream cake, although I’m not sure what the Portuguese call it. It’s topped with almonds and some type of yellowish cream on the top. It has white cream and crust layered the throughout the cake. It was delicious!
This one is not to be missed. Finding it is a bit tricky but then take a taxi. Really great collection of Portuguese history and culture. And the restaurant at the basement has great food with wonderful views. Must do!
