Know More about this tour

Regarded as one of the best museums in Portugal, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum can take you from Ancient Egypt to the present day across its two collections. 

Founders Collection

Acquired in life by Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian, it is recognised as one of the best private art collections in the world, comprising more than six thousand works of art, from Antiquity to the beginning of the 20th century.

The building that houses the Founders Collection was designed by the architects Ruy Jervis dAthouguia, Pedro Cid and Alberto Pessoa (1969) to accommodate the art collection amassed by Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian. It is located in the East of the Gulbenkian garden. The galleries of this building display hundreds of pieces divided into groups corresponding to Egyptian art, Greco-Roman art, Mesopotamia, the Islamic Orient, Armenia, the Far East and, where Western art is concerned, sculpture, the art of the book, painting, eighteenth-century French decorative arts, and works by Ren Lalique. The collection of works by Ren Lalique, which Calouste Gulbenkian purchased directly from the artist, is considered to be unique in the world for its quality and quantity.

Modern Collection

The largest and most comprehensive modern and contemporary Portuguese art collection, comprises more than ten thousand works of art. It offers an introduction to the history of art and culture in Portugal, from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day.

The building that houses the Modern Collection was designed by the architect Sir Leslie Martin (1983) and is located in the south of the garden. From Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso to Paula Rego and Vieira da Silva, the Modern Collection features some of the most internationally renowned Portuguese artists and continues to grow as contemporary works of art are added to it through donations and purchases.
