  • Luckily I got here on the weekend when the garden and treetop walk were free. I paid € 12 for the museum, which seems a lot considering it is only one floor and one of the rooms is fully darkened and you have to walk through it blind to get to the rest of the exhibition. The museum was 2/5. The garden is pretty.
  • I went there with some friends on a Sunday morning to see the Miró exposition and it was a really nice experience. The place is beautiful from the entrance to the installations and specially the garden. We spend almost 3 hours there and it was a pleasant time. Greener area and a lot more to see. Highly recommend. Will come back!
  • Museum is full of interesting contemporary art works, especially room with industrial sounds. However, considering small scale of works, ticket price seemed overpriced to me (20 Euros). There is nice park in the museum and make sure to buy ticket that includes it also, because there is really cool garden and Joan Miro museum inside it. Overall, it was nice experience, but a bit overpriced
  • Rather large museum complex with several buildings and beautiful gardens. I know 20€ can sound a bit pricey, but for what you get it’s a fair price. And they also have a student 50% discount. We’ve spent hours there looking at art from Miro, Cindy Sherman, Agnes Varda and others. Really special place, if you have time it’s a must to see in Porto.
  • Wonderful museum, located in a nice neighbourhood just a few minutes away from the city centre. The exposition is not that big, but nonetheless nice to enjoy. You can have a nice walk in the museum park, enjoy the Serralves Villa from the outside and do a short treewalk.
