For those who don’t know, Soares dos Reis Museum was the country’s first public museum. Founded in 1833 (back then it had another name and address) it was one of liberalism’s biggest conquests. It has a varied and vast collection of Portuguese artists (especially those from Porto). The museum’s attractions are the 19th and 20th century sculptures and paintings (Naturalism rules) and also ceramic pieces, furniture (Portuguese and Oriental) and works of art made with glass. On the first Sunday of each month entries are free for single visits or for groups of 12 (no more than that). The entries are also free for people residing in the UE who are unemployed.
