I get it, different artists have different views over things. But this was too dark for my taste. If you don't want to ruin your childhood images over fairy tales that you heard back then, stay out of this museum. Went in, walked fast, went...More

This is the second time we visited Cascais to see Paula Rego's work. This time there was a large and fascinating exhibition. Do check on the current exhibition as they change fairly often If it is a good exhibition you can't do better.

A very relaxed space just a very short walk from the habour. Uncluttered spaces with a cracking exhibition. Wish we'd found the cafe with it's simple menu earlier.

I didn't get a chance to see the exhibition, but this place is all about the architecture for me, which is different and unique - at least by local standards - and makes for some great photos.

Really special architecture to visit the arts of paula Rego:, in a very modern style, special paintings; also sometimes other expositions.

Really refreshing to see a gallary dedicated to a female artist! Beautiful building and the space itself is worth exploring. The collection changes but its all based on Paula Rego. We saw an exhibition dedicated to her nursery rhymes etchings and subsequent ballet which was...More

I’m a regular here when in town and like to check out current manifestations of the artist’s work. This time, the exhibition focused on Paula Rego’s Nursery Rhymes - when she collaborated with Louisa Lasdun, to have a ballet performance in Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. In...More
