The Serralves Museum is the foremost museum for contemporary art in Portugal, uniquely sited in the grounds of the Serralves Estate, which also comprises a Park and a Villa. Through its collection, temporary exhibitions, performance, education and public programmes, publishing initiatives, and national and international collaborations, the Museum fosters the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and culture. Introducing the work of the most important artists working today to diverse publics, strengthening ties with the local community, and encouraging reflection on the relationship between art and the environment that is intrinsic to the context of Serralves, are central to the Museum´s mission. Monographic and thematic exhibitions of established and emerging artists and the Serralves Collection are featured as part of a changing programme in the Museum galleries. The Serralves Villa and Park are also privileged sites for the presentation of special exhibitions, commissions and Collection displays, together with travelling exhibitions organized in collaboration with cultural partners in Portugal and abroad. A dynamic programme of cinema, contemporary dance, music and performance is presented in the Auditorium and other spaces of the Museum. The Auditorium and the Museum Library are also host to conversations, lectures, symposia in which the public can participate in discussions and debates on artistic and cultural issues of our time.

Access preferences

Online Expierience (Virtual Content)

In Serralves there are many spaces for sharing and enjoying cultural and natural experiences that allow us to experience contemporary art or auteur cinema, but also to follow the biological cycles and the diversity of species and landscapes that constitute its natural matrix. The health crisis caused by Covid-19 has challenged these relationships, these experiences, and everything we know about human experiences. During this period of isolation, SOLE (Serralves Online Experience) will guarantee the space and time to share artistic, environmental and educational experiences.

Serralves OnLine Experience allows access to exhibitions, films, music, books, educational programmes, natural wanderings, learning experiences.

Special Needs Groups (Group and Tours)

Serralves aims to provide a connection with institutions that aim to provide support and monitoring for groups with special needs, through the organisation of continuous programmes, with weekly or monthly periodicity, thus making it possible to discover the Foundation’s heritage assets. The proposals are tailored to the specific characteristics of each group, and are aimed at stimulating relational attitudes, develop autonomy, implementation capacity, in collaboration with the respective technical experts.

Activities are subject to prior appointment with the Educational Service, from 10am-1pm/2:30pm-5pm (except weekends and holidays). Marking application form: https://www.serralves.pt/pt/crm/pedido_marcacao.php
