The Museum Live

Keep up-to-date of what is new in the exhibition of each collection – the perfect opportunity to come back and visit us!

Housing two collections, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum is a dynamic space, and the displays in both the Founder’s Collection and the Modern Collection are regularly refreshed, sharing with the public the richness and diversity of the works they contain.

In the Founder’s Collection, Calouste Gulbenkian’s library is exhibited on rotation in the display cases dedicated to the Art of the Book, thus guaranteeing the proper preservation of the specimens. Seasonally, the Founder’s Collection also presents installations-interventions that evoke certain themes, through which pieces that are usually exhibited and those held in storage are combined.

In the Modern Collection’s display, structured on the basis of a timeline that covers the history of Portugal from the start of the 20th century to the present day, the selection of works is rotated over time to reflect different aspects of the collection, diverse readings and new acquisitions.
