Good museum
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Some amazing collections here. Rooms rather too roped off for my tastes so not much like a house . It’s free entry on Saturdays which was good. Labelling was good and photography was allowed.

Interesting collection, odd set up
Sep. 2019 • Friends
This is a really interesting collection but it was slightly odd that you couldn’t just look round but had to be escorted.

Awesome house. Great personal collection. A must see in Porto!
May 2019 • Couples
One of the most interesting private collections we have seen in Porto. This museum is free on weekend days. It is very different from most museums we have visited in Porto, as it hosts a part of the private collection of poet Guerra Junqueiro. His home has been turned into a museum and is tastefully furnished. The spacious rooms are full of curiosities he collected, even Flemish tapestries! We took our time to stroll through the museum, which was almost empty. So relaxing! And such a steep contrast with the Sé Cathedral, which is literally around the corner, about 300 meters away from this little gem! I would say, skip the Cathedral and spend your valuable time in this gem of a museum.

Hidden Gem
May 2019 • Couples
We have been to Porto many times, but until this year we had not visited this lovely museum. It is a hidden gem behind the cathedral. Displays include silver vessels, household furnishings, and religious objects. We were surprised by how clean and light the entire building is. We did not go with a guide, but we used the English language placards that were available in some of the rooms. The outside garden features a nice coffee shop with prices that are comparable to other cafes in the area. (Espresso .80 euro cents; beer 1.50; sandwiches from 1.50). The café is open to the public whether or not they visit the museum.

What a gorgeous building
Apr. 2019 • Couples
KIt costs very little to go in, but the house itself is worth it. Added to that the collection of antiquities, it was a lovely visit. While we were follwed by a guide, his English was very limited, but there were info cards in each room and numerous signs in English that did us just fine. Well worth the short wander round the back of the cathedral.

Step into 19th/ 20th Century Home
Mar. 2018 • Couples
Open daily. I think we had a discount with our Porto Card. Very interesting private collection of the time. It is a step back in time to tastefully furnished town home. Highly varied. Was not crowded so we were able to wander at our leisure. Different than many other museums we saw on our tour. We happened to be there for the Gunter Grass exhibition of paintings although literary works were also displayed. It had just opened at that time. Quotes from his literary works were on the walls. Icing on the cake.

Fascinating collection
Dec. 2018 • Couples
First you find it as it is nestled behind the cathedral. Visit is with a room attendant present as the objects are precious and within touch. The attendant knew her art history and was able to enlighten us and tell as how research into many objects was still underway. Definitely a place to visit.

A hidden gem, great for being unespected. And seeing Gunter Grass' watercolors - Great.
Jul. 2018
We just happened by this place and thought we would go in. It turns out it is free on weekends. Otherwise Euro 2.5 pax. Not bad. The house displays the personal collection of Guerra Junqueiro (1850-1923), an administrator, artist, journalist and poet. He collected furniture, Flemish tapestries, ceramics, glassware, silverware and religious art mainly from the 15th-19th centuries. A bit of everything, so if you are not into big museums you get a bit of everything here. The guide who followed us was knowledgeable and friendly. They also house temporary exhibitions. And when we were there it was Watercolors by Günter Grass the writer. He started as a painter. Never knew! But again great, also for being unexpected. The toilets are fine and there is also a cafe with a nice assortment of food and quite cheap. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Strange place
Apr. 2018 • Couples
Some interesting antiquities collected by a very rich poet! Strange experience though as we had to be accompanied around the museum by a "guide", he was more of a "guard" though. I tried to engage him in conversation as I thought he was a guide but in the end it felt like we had a stalker!

Antique house conveys past lifestyle
Aug. 2017 • Couples
Wandered round back of cathedral and discovered this modest museum/house. Quite atmospheric and some interesting antiquities. Tip: the adjacent café of the museum has inexpensive food and friendly service which you can consume in the sunshine of the charming courtyard.
