We had a good visit here. The building is very modern so it is a contrast to what you see in the old town. It is out of the middle of the old town and all the touristy stuff so it feels peaceful. And you...More

The museum was ok, I guess. I got to see the exhibit of Robert Maplethorpe, which is an American photographer whom I admire. It's a relatively small place, few exhibition chambers, nothing reeeeaaaally special about it. It costs 10 euros to enter, which I consider...More

Interesting place that joins modern museum to botanic gardens and a farm. Crossing the park you can find several sculptures and installations. It's a real pity these aren't well indicated by signals. I suggest you going out from there, to reach the sea walking at...More

The garden is really beautiful. The museum is worldwide recognized, but is modern art museum (which are not my favorites..)

I Art is mainly photos or videos but the grounds and House are worth seeing but not at €20 the staff seem very surly except for the cafe staff where the food was good and not expensive

This museum does not feature exceptional contemporary paintings - unless I missed a gallery or two. At the time we visited, the attractions were an exhibit of Robert Mapplethorpe photographs and Anish Kapoor “creations”. The Mappelthrope exhibit is awful.........many photos of male genitalia and other...More

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.

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
