The Berardo Collection Museum is a must-visit for all tourists passionate about the trends which fall in the category of contemporary art, from cubism and neo-Realism to experimental art, surrealism and op art. The collection owes its existence to the Portuguese businessman Joe Berardo who, in his lifetime, amassed a great number of works of contemporary art, and, given the value of the works, the city of Lisbon decided to turn the collection into a public good. At present, the collection enjoys the reputation of being one of the world’s finest and most comprehensive collections of modern and contemporary art.

By visiting this museum, tourists have the opportunity to browse through works by Andy Warhol, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, Miro, Duchamp, Dali and Bacon, and to admire highlights like Femme dans un fauteuil (Picasso), Oedipus and the Sphinx (Bacon), Ten Foot Flowers (Andy Warhol) and Portrait of Judy Garland (also by Andy Warhol).

The wide permanent collection of this museum is accommodated in the Belem Cultural Center, and the admission is free.
