Museu Serralves hosts excellent exhibitions, and we were fortunate to be in Porto to see Robert Mappelthorpe's fascinating and controversial photos. In addition to the museum, the gardens are filled with a number of treasures. We found it especially intriguing to walk back and forth...More

We have lived and visited Porto now for 10 years and only discovered this gem one year ago. We thought the inside of the museum was average to above average (depending on the exhibit) and planned to return. We have now visited several times and...More

The collection consists of a diversity of art pieces of which not all of them were my cup of tea but were intriguing to look at. The museum and gardens offer a great way to spend your afternoon a little outside of the city center.

No warning that most of the museum was closed for renovation. Outdoor sculptures underwhelming. Art Deco house was unfurnished. Gardens beautiful but I didn't go to a modern art museum to walk in a park. I'd skip it until they finish. Also, a message to...More

I am not an art-lover, but something about the two art exhibits resonated with me, making the visit surprisingly fascinating. Anish Kapoor's work is truly a must see (Jul 2018 - Jan 2019). Both the large outside exhibit in the park and his sketches/models of...More

It was a bit of a trek out to the museum from the city but worth it. The exhibitions in the gallery itself were very good but the grounds interested me more with several pieces of sculpture dotted around the beautiful gardens. The grounds were...More

Went to see the recent Mapplethorpe exhibition here. There was also an Anish Kapoor exhibition of models and sculptures in the grounds. Impressive names for a gallery in the Porto suburbs. The museum is very modern, very white, all clean lines and surprising angles.Good restaurant...More

We ate in the café in the gardens, next to the former tennis courts. The food was good value and very tasty. We had toasted cheese and ham sandwiches; you could say it was quite "rustic," or not very sophisticated, but it... More

Yes, big albeit public space by the office, but as you'd only ever arrive by car I'd just leave your stuff locked in your vehicle - openly parked out front, minimal chance of any problem
