In a minimalist building, Museu Serralves hosts frequently changing contemporary art exhibits. This prominent European contemporary circuit, part of the most-visited museum in Portugal, aims to bring attention to art and the fragile environment. Built on 18 hectares (44 acres) dotted with modern sculptures, the complex includes a 14-gallery museum, farmland, a shop, a bookstore, and several cafes. Use an audio guide at the museum to learn about its frequently changing exhibits and activities--there is not a single permanent exhibit at the site.

  • Fabulous park with sculpture and excellent landscape design. Extremely well maintained. New museum and historic Arte deco mansion are perfect. One warning: we had our rental car broken into on a miserable rainy day. We were told that thieves target rental cars because assumed tourists are trusting and leave stuff in their locked car. If you come in a car, do not leave anything in sight in the car. Porto is not 100% safe.
  • The inside space is beautiful. The exhibits inside were hit or miss. An amazing sound exhibit when I was there. The true beauty and amazing art lies outside in the large garden area. Beautiful sculptures, an excellent tree top pathway and all around great experience. Short walk to the town and beach after for a great afternoon
