About these ratings

Less than 50 years old, the Gulbenkian Museum hangs a world-renowned collection of art. The late Calouste Gulbenkian amassed a selection that includes medieval illuminated manuscripts, Chinese vases and paintings by artists from Rubens to Cassatt. Recent travelers seem surprised by their enchantment with this museum. Several especially highlight the Lalique Gallery; others note the intimacy of the small museum.

Admission is fairly inexpensive -- especially when compared to museums in other European cities -- but on Sundays the fee is waived altogether. The rest of the week, you can choose to buy a combined ticket to both the Gulbenkian Museum and the nearby Modern Art Center. You'll find this top spot off the São Sebastião or the Praça de Espanha metro stops.
