This world-class museum presents the extraordinary collection of Calouste Gulbenkian, an oil magnate and art collector who left all of his art to Lisbon upon his death. A foundation was created in his name, and in addition to the museum with his collection there is a modern art center showing 20th century Portuguese and British art, and an auditorium in the foundation's main building for a rich cultural program of international artists and the foundation's own orchestra and choir. The collection of works by René Lalique, which CalousteGulbenkian acquired directly from the artist, is considered unique in the world not only for its quality but also quantity. The Museum is part of an architectonic complex which comprises the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation head office building, an Art Library, auditoriums for concerts and conferences, a cafeteria and shops. The Gulbenkian Park, a place where contact with nature is privileged, further includes the Modern Art Center and an open-air auditorium.
