Calouste Gulbenkian Museum Tours

The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon houses one of Portugal's finest private art collections. A wealthy man named Calouste Gulbenkian collected art for more than 40 years, and when he died in 1955, he left his collection to Portugal to be set up in a museum. The collection includes a gold Egyptian mummy mask, a collection of bronze cats and other items from Egypt, an alabaster bowl that is more than 2,700 years old, a vast collection of Hellenic coins, a 2,400 year old Attic vase, rare Chinese porcelain items, Japanese prints, and Persian tapestries from the 16th and 17th centuries. 

There is also a huge section of European art, much of which was purchased from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Works here include pieces by Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Monet, Van Dyck, Ghirlandaio, and Renoir. Visitors can also admire a white marble statue of Diana sculpted by Jean-Antoine Houdon and silver that was once used by Catherine the Great. The museum shares gardens with the Modern Art Center.

Practical Info

The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum is located at Avenida de Berna, 45A. To get there, take the metro to the São Sebastião or Praça de Espanha Station.
