CASA MUSEU TEIXEIRA LOPES

The home and studio of Portugal's most acclaimed sculptor António Teixeira Lopes (1866-1942), is situated in the centre of Gaia, a few minutes walk from the Camera de Gaia metro station and Port lodges.

ABOUT

Casa Museu Teixeira Lopes Museum House

The building that houses this incredible collection dates from the 19th century and was designed by António's brother, José Teixeira Lopes. Between 1895 and 1942 it was the home and workshop of António Teixeira Lopes. Following his death, he bequeathed his works to Vila Nova de Gaia's municipal council. Since its opening in 1933, the museum houses Lopes's own work and other great art pieces. There is a permanent exhibition of Diogo Macedo (1889-1959) and the only Modigliani in Portugal.

An extremely rich collection of Art Deco can be found here with pieces of furniture, ceramics, textiles, glassware, jewellery, and a significant collection of Portuguese paintings by such artists as Alfredo Keil, António Carneiro, António Ramalho, Aurélia de Sousa, Domingos Sequeira, Henrique Pousão, João Vaz, José Malhoa, Silva Porto, Sousa Pinto, Vieira Lusitano, and Vieira Portuense, among many others. Temporary exhibitions held here are a draw for many visitors to return regularly.

Although the Teixeira Lopes House Museum is one of the lesser-known museums in Porto/Gaia it's certainly worth the ten-minute walk from the riverfront and the crowds, even more so since its restoration in 2012. New amenities such as a cafeteria, a bookshop and a sculpture garden.
