Museum & Culture Sundays
For those who are new in town, welcome!
As you might already know, we’re continuously trying to find creative but safe ways to help our community gather, meet new people and enjoy some good times in Lisbon.
Let’s soak in some local culture and make new friends at the same time, shall we?
The historic city of Lisbon is essentially one big museum, but did you know the museums located here are some of the coolest and most unique around?
For example, there’s a museum completely dedicated to tiles, another museum about horse-drawn carriages, and another museum all about…marionettes?
You don’t need to be an art connoisseur or know anything about art to join us, just come with an open mind!
This time we’ll be checking out the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian. The Gulbenkian houses one of the world’s finest private art collections, thanks to its Armenian benefactor (and rich-ass oil tycoon) Calouste Gulbenkian.
After we finish perusing the collection (around 4:45pm) we ll meet up at a terrace for some snacks, drinks, and informal discussion, 3 minutes walk from the Gulbenkian! *Look for the red chairs, pictured.

The extensive collection spans a diverse selection of eras and genres; from Greek, Oriental-Islamic and Egyptian artifacts through to classical European Renaissance art and French silver work.
The collection was amassed by Calouste Gulbenkian, an Armenian oil tycoon, who emigrated to Lisbon during WWII. His immense oil wealth allowed him to acquire only the finest artefacts and art, and there is a distinct emphasis on quality over size, within the museum. The Museu Calouste is surrounded by peaceful gardens, and there is the Coleção Moderna, a museum celebrating Portuguese contemporary artists.

Feel free to come later and meet up with us wherever we are too. See you there!
Due to the size of the group, we ll be meeting outside, in front of the water fountain to the right of the main entrance. There is a photo on this event page in case you re not sure what it looks like. You can check in with Therese when you arrive.
As with all spots in Lisbon, you ll be required to wear a mask while indoors.
