I felt that if this is what you are interested in, then its a great museum. The displays were well presented, and good lighting. The descriptions on the wall were all a large enough print that could read from a reasonable distance.

The museum displays not enough asian art and is so bloody far away from the center(not well connected to the public Transportation services).

This is a fantastic museum having collections that are very interesting. The displays are dramatic and very well curated. Besides the restaurant has a fantastic Sunday brunch with views of the river and the docks..with an awesome spread that will leave your appetite well sated.

Not quite the British Museum, and to be honest I expected a larger collection given the long Portuguese interaction with Asia, but if you have any interest in history or in Asia then you must visit. There is a restaurant with a lunch buffet that...More
