Belém Cultural Center
Belém Cultural Center (Centro Cultural de Belém)
Belém Cultural Center offers four exhibition areas and a Design Musem that presents exhibitions of plastic arts, architecture, design and photography.
Inaugurated in 1999, the Design Museum opened with a show of 200 pieces, chronologically ordered, allowing the visitor to see the evolution of the concept of design through the 20th century. The collection, known as the Francisco Capelo collection, is divided into three themes: luxury, pop and cool.
The first part of the exhibition is dedicated to objects originally from France and Italy, the second stage reflects the post-war era and the third was born during the reconstruction of Europe, after the end of the hostilities. Within this context, emerged the industrial real estate with a new design stage.
The Cultural Center is open daily, except the 25th of December.
