Bordalo Pinheiro Museum

Get to know the most complete Bordalo collection

On Campo Grande, the Bordalo Pinheiro Museum collects elements of the life and work of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, one of Portugal's most iconic cartoonists.

Opening in 1916, the Museum houses over three thousand prints, 900 photographs and 1200 ceramic pieces inspired by popular culture and society, and sets itself as the ideal space for everyone who likes Bordalo Pinheiro's unmistakable features.

The Bordalo Pinheiro Museum has a permanent exhibition split into several hubs and galleries, each with a different focus: self-portraits, 'Zé Povinho', ceramics, audiovisual and even testimonials (keeping alive an old tradition that sends us back to the biographical universe of Bordalo Pinheiro). At the Bordalo Pinheiro Museum you'll find more than the still popular porcelain decorations, and you'll be able to know the artist's more popular pieces better.

Cool Tip: The Museum also has a library you can visit.
