What to expect

Founded in 1969, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum encompasses two art collections located in different buildings. The Founder’s Collection was amassed by Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian and is one of the best private collections in the world, with works ranging from Ancient Egypt to Art Nouveau. The Modern Collection, currently closed due to renovation works, exhibits the most complete collection of modern and contemporary Portuguese art. The Museum also presents several temporary exhibitions during the year and is surrounded by an iconic modernist garden. From Antiquity to the 20th century, get ready to travel through 5.000 years of history and enjoy an eclectic and unique collection brought together by Calouste Gulbenkian.

The Museum galleries are distributed in chronological and geographical, creating two independent circuits within the overall tour.

  • The first one encompasses the Eastern and Classical Art on display in the Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Mesopotamian, Eastern Islamic, Armenian, and Far Eastern galleries.
  • The second circuit features European Art from the beginning of the 11th century to the mid-20th century with sections devoted to the Art of the Book, Sculpture, Painting, Decorative Arts, and the work of René Lalique, Calouste Gulbenkian close friend.
  • The European Art circuit begins with works in ivory and illuminated manuscripts, followed by a selection of 15th, 16th, and 17th-century sculptures and paintings.
  • French 18th-century decorative arts have a special place in the museum with outstanding gold and silver objects and furniture, as well as paintings and sculptures. These decorative arts are followed by galleries exhibiting a group of paintings by the Venetian painter Francesco Guardi, 18th and 19th-century English paintings.
  • The museum tour ends with a superb collection of jewels and glass by René Lalique, displayed in its own room.

Skip the long lines and experience a wide range of cultures, from Ancient Egypt to Persia and Japan, and discover masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, Turner, or René Lalique accompanied by an audio-guided system available in different languages.
