Museu Calouste Gulbenkian

The Museu Calouste Gulbenkian is a huge art museum in Lisboa, Portugal. It is named after a British engineer with Armenian roots who was a pioneer in oil production in the Middle East – and used his money to collect art. The museum consists of different buildings in a park.

The main building opened in 1969 shows art from Egypt, Greece, Armenia as well as Islamic art. Important works of Rembrandt, Monet and Manet can be seen there. In 1984 the Centro de Arte Moderna became a part of the museum and you can see a good collection of modern art there. Throughout the building and the park you will also find some nice coffee bars and restaurants.
