Museums in the Iberian Peninsula

The rich history of Spain and Portugal and their commitment to the future make museum visits on the Iberian Peninsula ones you’ll never forget.  Masterpieces abound at the Prado and the Guggenheim Bilbao, and those are only two of many lavishly endowed museums you must visit.

Velázquez, Goya, Miró, Dalí, Picasso… as well as El Greco, Tintoretto, Monet, Van Gogh, Kandinsky… Spain can show you the work of all of these. There are over 1,400 museums in Spain where you can see masterpieces by great artists famous all over the world, from all periods, and in a whole range of different styles. No visitor can afford to miss a visit to the Prado Museum, home to one of the most important art collections in the world. But there's more to see than just paintings. There are also science museums, archaeological museums, maritime museums…and plenty of cafes and tapas to keep you going in between visits.

Visit Lisbon’s museums, where works of art from Portugal and throughout the world await you.
Start at the Museu de Arte Antiga (Museum of Antique Art). Here, you will find the Panels of Saint Vincent de Fora, one of the most renowned group portraits in the European tradition, and the ‘Temptations of Saint Anthony’ triptych by Hieronymus Bosch. Also on display are the Namban Screens that depict the arrival of the first Westerners - the Portuguese - in Japan in 1543.
