MUSEU SERRALVES (SERRALVES MUSEUM)
Petit Futé's opinion on MUSEU SERRALVES (SERRALVES MUSEUM)
In this magnificent residence designed by the famous architect Siza Vieira are exhibited great names of contemporary art.
In a magnificent residence designed by the famous contemporary architect Siza Vieira, the works are hung with know-how and reflection: clarity, information, space. The museum offers spaces with an ingenious play of light, and spaces that can be adapted and adapted to different exhibitions. Everything is studied in detail, from toilet drawings to staircase railings.
Outside, the Parque de Serralves (18 ha) extends the pleasure of the eye: Jacques Gréber's 1932 project began with a French-style garden before going down into a succession of square pools surrounded by pruned boxwood. We then end up with a small panorama overlooking a miniature lake with an islet, where the vegetation is carefully left to its own devices in its controlled disorder. On the way, a visit is required to the "Casa de Serralves" which overlooks the park. Its 1930s art deco architecture, one of the authors of which is the French architect Charles Siclis, places it in the network of the most remarkable houses in the world. The foundation also organizes concerts and video art screenings.
At the end of May, beginning of June, "Serralves em festa" is organized, 50 hours of free and non-stop programming of music, theatre, dance in the gardens and museum. Also in this space, a bookshop with a very interesting documentary collection in the fields of the arts. A cafeteria on the first floor offers a large buffet every lunchtime. A must see place!

As always, Serralves is fully available to welcome you in complete safety

The Ministry of Culture and the Department of Cultural Heritage, through its palaces, monuments and museums, of which the Serralves Foundation is a part, has joined this initiative to ensure that cultural spaces are recognised as meeting all the safety requirements defined by the DGS, and thus distinguished as safe places for all those who visit us.
The "Safe Travels" label, created by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), recognises destinations, entities and companies that comply with health and hygiene protocols aligned with the WTTC's Safe Travel Protocols". Portugal was the first country in Europe to be distinguished. The Serralves Foundation was recognized as a safe attraction and received this worldwide distinction.
