The entrance to the museum was free since it opened its doors, in 2007


The entry to the Berardo Collection Museum, in Belém, will have paid tickets from 2017, according to the protocol signed on November 23 at the Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB), the Ministry of Culture and the collector José Berardo. Since 2007, the year of the opening of the museum, the entries have been free by the wish of the collector, but with increased need for financial support, this changes will be made.



This museum will remain in the CCB for another six years, according to the agreement signed between the State and José Berardo, providing for automatic renewals starting 2022. The Berardo Foundation will be obliged to guarantee free tickets for at least one day per week. The 900 art pieces in the museum will remain where they are until the end of the year 2022.



The Berardo Museum opened in 2007 with an initial collection of 962 works from the art collection of the businessman José Berardo, assigned to the State, and evaluated that year at 316 million euros by the international auctioneer Christie's. The museum, which celebrated ten years in June, has more than six million visitors of permanent and temporary exhibitions.
