Fodor's Expert Review Museu de Arte Contemporânea

Porto Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, a winner of the Pritzker Prize and Portugal's best-known architect, the Contemporary Art Museum is part of the Serralves Foundation and is surrounded by lovely gardens. It has changing international exhibitions, as well as work from Portuguese painters, sculptors, and designers, so be sure to check the website for the latest news. Recharge after your visit with a Chemex-brewed coffee at the Serralves Tea House, whose homemade jams make nice souvenirs. Consider purchasing one of the combination tickets on offer, such as the one to the museum and to the Sea Life aquarium in Foz.
