National Museum Of Ancient Art - Review
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.

National Museum Of Ancient Art, Lisbon Reviews
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!
Great museum with mainly paintings. It houses one of my favourite paintings which I was finally able to see. I got in at 10:15 and the place was pretty much empty. Price is only 6 euro for an adult, recommended for a visit!
It's undoubtedly the best museum in Lisbon. During the visit it's also possible to enjoy the garden or the bar, both witj a great view over the river.
This is Lisbons National museum which houses a great selection of art. The museum boasts a beautiful garden area with lovely views and relaxation. A nice place to spend a morning or afternoon while enjoying a cultural experience. New exhibits are ongoing.
