This new museum took over the former Museu de Arte Moderna space in 2014 and features a small and manageable collection of contemporary and modern art, 80% or so of which is dedicated to local works. The permanent collection features some of Portugal's best-known artists, most notably painters Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro and António Carneiro and sculptor Dorita de Castel-Branco.

Temporary exhibitions run the gamut from war photography to abstract art. Permanent highlights include Carneiro's Maria Josefina ; Maria do Céu Crispim's Can You See Me? (made of nails); and several paintings from various artists of Sintra's 18th-century glory days.
