In a minimalist building, Museu Serralves hosts frequently changing contemporary art exhibits. This prominent European contemporary circuit, part of the most-visited museum in Portugal, aims to bring attention to art and the fragile environment. Built on 18 hectares (44 acres) dotted with modern sculptures, the complex includes a 14-gallery museum, farmland, a shop, a bookstore, and several cafes. Use an audio guide at the museum to learn about its frequently changing exhibits and activities--there is not a single permanent exhibit at the site.

Museu Serralves reviews
Very nice Museum but too expensive for such a small collection. Unfortunately, the coat check woman had a lousy attitude and chatted on the phone keeping paying visitors waiting for several minutes... more »
I love contemporary art so when you make it interactive, it becomes even better ! The expositions are not only beautiful but most of them address an issue that relevant for our society. For example... more »
This is the Shame of modern art museums. 18€ for the visit, museum almost empty with the vast majority of the rooms not available due to renovations. The contemporary art wing was also closed. No information at all before purchasing the tickets. The permanent exhibit was, in my opinion, poor and not interesting at all. Park is nice but not the best I've ever seen. Well done, it was a nice con.
This museum is a true house of wonders, due to its simple but amazing architecture and brilliant room placement everything you see will leave you in great awe, they not only provide you with a great visual experience but auditive as well. The garden outside is simply mystical, very tall trees blocking the sky view and beautiful houses hidden behind them with amazing pastel colors that seems to blend into the ground's own color as well. One of the houses had a beautiful front garden that seemed straight out of one of Wes Anderson's movies. This is truly a unique experience which I HIGHLY recommend to anyone near this museum.
