The Soares dos Reis National Museum has just been distinguished with a prestigious award, being recognized as one of the best rated attractions in the city of Porto.


The Tripexpert 2023 Experts’ Choice Award is given to less than 2% of the attractions listed, representing the best hotels, restaurants and tourist and cultural centers in the world, and is the only award in the sector based on professional evaluations.

To award this distinction, Tripexpert relies on articles written by travel guides, journalists, writers and other professionals in the field of tourism and travel, only considering content written by credible people who provide reliable and impartial advice to travelers and visitors.


With more than 2,500 comments from visitors on Google and Tripadvisor, the Soares dos Reis National Museum ranks in the top 10 attractions on Tripexpert, with positive reviews and ratings from recognized and accredited sources, such as Michelin Guide, Lonely Planet, Fodor’s and U.S. News & World Report.


According to António Ponte, Director of the Soares dos Reis National Museum, this distinction “is recognition of the work that has been carried out in recent years at the museum, culminating in the reopening to the public of the Long Duration Exhibition”, which has already received more than 30,000 visitors in just four months.


Inaugurated on April 13, and marking the full reopening of the museum after the renovation work, the exhibition brings together the most important collection of 19th century Portuguese art. In total, there are 1133 pieces that tell the story of the museum and art, spread over 27 rooms.
