The museum based in Baixa-Chiado features contemporary artists from around Portugal. There’s a cafe on the top tier surrounded by sculptures by artists like Jorge Vieira, nice for a coffee, a pastry, a rest, and a view. Don’t forget to visit the new building around the corner, a renovated palace housing works on canvas by artists like Paula Rego and larger mixed-media installation pieces.
