Museum online

The Museum proposes new interactive ways of discovering and exploring its Collections. Through this page you will be able to see or revisit, the various offerings of the Museum that will allow you to find out more about our Collections: virtual visits, new stories and new readings, among others. Be sure to also follow us on social networks and discover interesting facts about your favourite works, through our curators.

Virtual Tour 360º

The virtual visit is a unique opportunity to (re)discover the Museum, allowing you to visit the various galleries without leaving home. Explore the Founder’s Collection, one of the most important private collections of international art, and the Modern Collection, the most complete collection of Portuguese art from the 20th century.

Art in a Minute

The videos from the programme Art in a Minute, launched in 2016 by RTP in the scope of the celebrations of 60 years since the creation of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, are now available on the Museum’s website. Take advantage of the opportunity to see or revisit the selection of masterpieces belonging to the Museum: 30 works from the Founder’s Collection and 30 works from the Modern Collection. (Soon)

Curators’ Choices

Over the next months, the curators of the Modern Collection will explore on a selection of works of art, which include creations by national and international artists.

A Collection of Stories

The Founder’s Collection is like a storybook that we can read in different ways. Throughout the year, every month we will propose a new theme and each week we will reveal some of the narratives contained in the collection, from curious facts about the conception and acquisition of works and accounts of the artists and previous owners, to stories about their protagonists.

New Readings, New Perspectives

Under this initiative, the Museum is inviting conservators, curators, artists and researchers to present new readings and new perspectives on the works in its Collections. Follow these statements, ranging from the personal to the academic, about a work or group of works from the Founder’s Coll and Modern Collections here.

Google Arts & Culture

The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum started this partnership with Google Arts & Culture in 2016, making available some works belonging to the Founder’s Collection. The contents were now updated, and a broader and more diverse selection of pieces from the Founder’s collection is now accessible to the public. The Modern Collection, which was not represented, currently includes a set of master pieces.
