A haven from the beating sun and the blustery conditions on the Belem riverfront, this museum drew our eye for its exhibition on the life's work of Dutch artist Escher. A more comprehensive overview would be hard to find, and his progression from more 'naive'...More

We were on holiday in Lisbon, and noticed this was on, so went in. The many originals were thoughtfully grouped, and expertly lit to show them at their best. The 11 euro entry included an audio guide which we didn't really use much, but had...More

This is a relatively small museum, overshadowed by the nearby and much larger Centro Cultural de Belém and the Museu Colecção Berardo. Entry was €11 per adult, with a free audio guide for the Escher Exhibition. The works are arranged chronologically, which makes sense as...More

We went to the Escher exhibition hosted by this museum. The range of works on display was excellent, taking up quite a few rooms. We enjoyed the exhibition greatly, however, the museum could have been more creative with its presentation, and with the level if...More

Nice place to have a museum, near the river. Building quite cool as well, howver inside it's weak! What a pity! Need more pieces and some more descriptions.

We did not go into the museum, but were looking for lunch between visiting the Discoveries Monument and the Torre de Belem. This small restaurant occupies a shady courtyard in front of the museum and is a great place for a relaxed lunch. The menu...More
