With an exhibition of the works of M C Escher this museum has been on a winner. Fortunately for us it’s been extended from first closing date in May till September 16. But if you can’t get there by then the permanent exhibition is well...More

Escher is quite a fascinating artist with a lot of mathematically inspired works which were really interesting and I loved the exhibiton. The entry was 11 euros and worth every penny.

This is a relatively small museum, overshadowed by the nearby and much larger Centro Cultural de Belém and the Museu Colecção Berardo. Entry was €11 per adult, with a free audio guide for the Escher Exhibition. The works are arranged chronologically, which makes sense as...More

I almost got away due to the uneducated attendants. It really got me feel bad during this short visit. At least it was cheap.

The exhibition is only open until 16 September. (It was only meant to be open until 27 May but was extended, so you might be lucky - it could be extended again.)
