No matter if you are on a tight budget or if your goal is to visit all the museums in Oporto, we have good news for you. There are many free activities you can do around the country and, for that reason, we bring you four free museums you can’t miss in Oporto.

  • Serralves Museum

The Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art was designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira and is considered by many to be one of the best museums located in Oporto.

Besides being able to see some of the best national art pieces, you will also be able to see several works by international artists.

When you’re in Serralves Museum, you can’t miss the gardens located outside the museum. Admission to this one of the city’s most emblematic museums is free on the first Sunday of every month, from 10am to 1pm.

  • Oporto Military Museum

For history students or even for those who wouldn’t change the History Channel for anything, the Oporto Military Museum is the perfect option to spend a Sunday morning. Why Sunday morning? Because the entrance is free, of course!

The museum has a Weapons Pavilion, divided between a section dedicated to the participation of Portugal in World War l and another section to the colonial wars in Angola, Guinea and Mozambique.

In addition, the Oporto Military Museum also has several other collections, such as the collections dedicated to the most important moments in Portuguese military history or the collection of miniature soldiers from various eras and various countries.

  • Soares dos Reis National Museum

The Nacional Soares dos Reis Museum is the oldest museum in the country and, despite having been created in 1833, that’s not why it’s not a modern museum.

It’s the exact opposite: it is one of the most complete museums in the city of Oporto, with permanent exhibitions of painting, sculpture, decorative arts and furniture.

The museum also has a camellia garden and, in the back, you can visit the old Rainha D.Leonor velodrome.

Don’t know when you can visit the Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis for free? We help you out with this one: every Sunday and public holidays until 2pm.

  • Portuguese Photography Center in Oporto

The most curious thing about the Portuguese Photography Center in Oporto is its location: it is located in a building that, apart from being very beautiful, used to be a prison.

Located in the historic center of the city, the Portuguese Photography Center has several exhibitions, some are permanent and others are temporary.

There’s no reason not to visit this temple of photography located in the Oporto, as entry is free every day: Tuesday to Friday from 3pm to 6pm or Saturdays and Sundays from 3pm to 7pm.

When you have some free time between work and school and you want to make the best use of it, without spending too much money, you just have to follow these suggestions and visit these museums in the north of Portugal.
