Housed in a former palace, this is the place to see the old masters’ fine art, fancy Baroque couches, Rococo chaise lounges, and often-times disturbing iconography that makes you wish you’d been on better behavior last night. It’s nice to take a spin-through and ogle the opulent rooms, and the temporary exhibits are some of the better ones in Lisbon. And don’t miss the cafeteria… not for the food, which is a pretty good deal but nothing special, but for the garden out back. Grab a plate of the day and a glass of vinho and dine in the royal gardens with a killer view of the Tejo. It’s free to enter the cafeteria (and the park too, though it’s kind of rude not to buy a coffee at least), but if you want to enter the museum, it’ll cost ya.

See what’s on as far as temporary exhibits here.
