The Anastacio Goncalves Museum is said not to have the prestige it actually deserves, being overshadowed by other museums in Lisbon. The bottom line is this museum, which bears the name of the one who gathered the collection, is well worth a visit given it showcases a valuable collection of works of fine and decorative art and due to the fact it is located in one of the most beautiful Art-Nouveau buildings in Lisbon (the building used to belong to Jose Malhoa, a reputed Portuguese artist).

One of the sections of the Anastacio Goncalves Museum consists of 19th century Portuguese paintings, another one of furniture from the 16th to the 20th century (Portuguese and foreign pieces alike), and yet another section features a collection of Chinese porcelain, with items dating back as early as the 12th century (and highlights such as pieces from the Ming and Qing dynasties). Visitors might also be interested in admiring the miscellaneous collection of European ceramics, glassware, tapestry, coins, medals and jewelry.

Lisbon Card holders can visit the museum for free.
