The Director’s Guide: Calouste Gulbenkian Museum.
A visitor’s guide to the best of Lisbon’s Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, featuring insider tips from its director Penelope Curtis.
I think the outstanding feature of the museum is to blend a small and highly selective collection, which ranges from Ancient Egypt to Lalique, from medieval Syria to Degas and Manet, into a cohesive whole. It is an unusually homogenous and fluent journey through a museum space designed specifically for these objects, in an essentially permanent installation.
