Museu Coleção Berardo is the main museum of modern and contemporary art in Portugal and houses the collection assembled by José Berardo over two decades.
Here, visitors may enjoy works by both contemporary and twentieth-century artists from a range of cultural backgrounds who work in different media and have contributed to the history of art. The museum gives an insight of the main paths of artistic practices, either in the permanent exhibition of the Berardo Collection or through temporary exhibitions.
Names such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, Max Ernst, Vieira da Silva, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman, and Cindy Sherman, among others, are presented in context with the art movements that they helped define.
The works are arranged in chronological order, which allows the viewer to travel through time and gain a thorough knowledge of each situation.
A varied programme covering educational activities, conferences and guided tours is available to everyone visiting the museum. Since the opening, on 25 June 2007, Museu Coleção Berardo has become the most visited museum in Portugal.
The museum can be visited daily between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
