MEDEIROS E ALMEIDA MUSEUM
An outstanding private collection
One of Lisbon's most outstanding but little-known museums, the former
residence of Antonio Medeiros e Almeida houses a priceless collection of
17th to 20th-century fine arts.
Displayed in 25 rooms, it ranges from
porcelain and furniture, to silverware, paintings by artists such as George
Romney and Thomas Gainsborough, and sculptures.
One of the highlights is furniture by François Linke, one of the most celebrated furniture makers of the 19th century, with the most noteworthy pieces being a long case clock in rosewood and glass marble, and a Louis XIV-style cabinet with strong art nouveau influences.
In the Silver Room is a dinner service that once belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte, the Lake Room contains marble and gilded bronze wall fountains from the Palace of Versailles, and the Porcelain Room displays priceless and rare pieces from the Han and Qing dynasties.
