About—Museu Serralves
Museu Serralves

The Museum’s core objectives are the constitution of a representative collection of Portuguese and international contemporary art; presentation of a program of temporary, collective and individual exhibitions reflecting a dialogue between the national and international artistic contexts; and organization of pedagogical programs that widen public interest in contemporary art and encourage stronger ties with the local community. The Museum also aims to develop projects with young artists that enable them to affirm their works and further their artistic enquiries. The Museum’s Collection is constituted by direct acquisitions, works deposited by the State and private collectors and donations.
