I got to visit the best museum in Portugal and it was awesome! You have to check it out!
The best museum in all of Portugal is in this garden about five minutes north. The Museum Golbenkian – spoiler alert: they have Egyptian stuff, I love Egyptian stuff. They also have Greco-Roman art. This is an encyclopedic collection of treasures. Whoa!! Everywhere you turn, like these Chinese porcelain.
This guy collected so many beautiful objects. Rembrandts, art, and sculpture, and clocks, all during his travels.
Let’s sit down and acknowledge the man who created this. Calouste Gulbenkian. He was an oil magnate, died in the 1950s. Really was responsible- oh he had this nickname called “Mister Five Percent.” He took five percent of all these oil companies. I love that idea.
Beautiful Diana and the stag. As I walked around the space, I was inspired. I loved his collection, I loved seeing the stuff – art nouveau.
Hello! There is your’s truly. And, I don’t know, it is just cool. You got to check it out. Very close to downtown. And at the end, sign the guestbook. Seems like they love guestbooks in Lisbon. I signed it, I love this place.
