Take an once-in-a-lifetime trip to Portugal with the Harn Museum of Art and experience an art-filled adventure with Harn Museum Director Lee Anne Chesterfield. During this 7-day journey, travelers will revel in the vibrant culture of not one, but two cities—Porto and Lisbon. Participants will enjoy gourmet meals and five-start accommodations, explore some of the world’s top museums including Port Lodges, one of Europe’s most adventurous contemporary museums, as well as the famous Casa da Mùsica by Rem Koolhaas, and gain access to artist’s studios and private collections.
The Harn’s third Harn Voyage to Spain was inspired by the Museum’s modern and contemporary collections. In addition to exploring museums, galleries and private collections, travelers spoke with architects and immersed themselves in local history with tours of each city. Participants enjoyed five-star accommodations at The Majestic and the Westin Palace Hotel and were within walking distance to restaurants and shopping.
