We made a trek to the contemporary art museum in Porto, and I can really advise that they take a lesson from this one. There are only a few artists, with the bulk of the collection being that of José de Guimaraes. As it happens,...More

The museum of modern art is very special and interesting ! The personal is so friendly . Especially the African masked has been extra ordinary. Very unique and a perfect design. A place you have to visit!

The CIAJG aka Platform of the Arts (2012, Pitagoras Architects) is a vast art exhibition space with temporary shows, art lab, cultural activities, etc. with a great permanent collection. where space and displays perfectly enhance the artworks. Fascinating! A must-see for any art lover.

Well done, very modern, very airy, great mask collection but the modern part was just not my taste. And it feels like they don't have enough pieces to fill the space.

This is the name of the temporary exhibition. The collection, named Jose Guimaraes is a very beautiful collection of african; chinese and other origins objects. The beautiful exhibition of african masks is shown in a Lina Bo Bardi structure, as in MASP (Sao Paulo/ Brazil).

It is indeed an awesome building! Modern, gigantic and a very important initiative in putting Guimarães in the avant-garde of museums and cultural institutions. The cultural complex is more commonly known as "Plataforma das Artes e Criatividade", built at the site of the old market...More
