Gulbenkian museum on Sundays' free entrance.


Without realizing that it's free entry on Sundays after 2pm, I scheduled our visit on a Sunday at 3pm. I can't change the time since the rest of the program would be affected. How crowded is it on Sundays when the entrance is free? Personally, I would have rather paid the ticket price than navigate the crowded museum, but it is what it is. So, just wanted to know what to prepare ourselves for. We are going as a group of 18 people.

Thank you

Although I haven't been on a Sunday afternoon (I've only gone in the a.m.), I don't think there will be much of a problem.
The Gulbenkian is a beautifully organized, very well laid out museum, very easy to see in a leisurely two hours+. It's a joy. Every piece of art there is jewel, as Calouste Gulbenkian had exquisite taste. For the art lovers in your group, it should be a highlight of their trip.
