Make a visit to Berardo Collection Museum - the visual art gallery of XX and XXI centuries
The Berardo Collection Museum is one of the 100 most visited museums in the world
The Berardo Collection Museum offers an overview of the art of the twentieth century and early twenty-first century, in particular the European and American art. This is considered the most important collection of modern and contemporary art in Lisbon and even one of the best in Europe.
The collection displayed in this museum, which is in the Centro Cultural de Belém, was put together by José Berardo, Portuguese businessman and collector. In the permanent exhibition you can see works by Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dali, and Francis Bacon among many others. In addition to this, the Berardo Collection Museum also offers its visitors a very wide range of temporary exhibitions, which allow exploring other issues of modern and contemporary art.
This museum has occupied the 74th in the list of 100 most visited museums in the world in 2015, with 823,000 entries, according to "The Art Newspaper", international publication specializing in art. This is the only Portuguese museum to join this list and, interestingly enough, the very few with free admission.
