Housed in the Palácio dos Biscainhos, the Biscainhos Museum offers visitors a journey through the daily life of Portugal's eighteenth century nobility through the building, its collections and the magnificent baroque garden, one of the most significant of this period in Portugal.

Built in the 17th century and transformed in the first half of the 18th century, the Palace was the home of the Bertiandos Counts for 300 years and opened to the public as a museum on 11 February 1978.

With the building and its gardens classified as Property of Public Interest since 1949, the permanent exhibition of the Biscainhos Museum illustrates the living situation of Portuguese noble society, in the context of a manor house of the Baroque period, displaying mainly collections of decorative arts, with emphasis also on the collections of national and European painting and Portuguese sculpture.

The heritage richness of the Biscainhos Garden, one of the most expressive testimonies of the Baroque that survives in Portugal, was awarded in 2020 with the Seal of Quality of Historic Garden attribution by the Portuguese Association of Historic Gardens.
