Museums and Palaces

The multidisciplinary perspective of the architectural design was the work of architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Hence, in addition to the 4,500m2 of exhibition area with its emphasis on scale, proportion and light, the remaining 8,200m2 feature an auditorium, a library, a documentation centre, store, bookshop and relaxation areas including a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Park. The entire space was designed to invite reflection and the feeling of being integrated into the nature that is forever looking in from the other side of the window.

The Museum contains a valuable collection of contemporary art featuring both national and non-national artists from the 60s onwards.

The Museum's mission further involves putting on both temporary exhibitions and educational programmes that seek to develop interest and deepen understanding of contemporary art and encourage dialogue between artists and their audiences.
