We did not let the Port tasting from the day before slow us down for our early cultural sightseeing start.  First stop, Fundacão Serralves Museu, the contemporary art museum designed by Álvaro Siza.  The exhibition space was enormous.  There were so many different shows happening at the same time with a great variety to view.  And the restaurant was excellent.  We spent most of the day here, ending our visit with a stroll through the sculpture park that was too large for us to fully appreciate.  The day was getting short but we still made time for a visit to Casa da Mùsica.  This is the spectacular music hall designed by Rem Koolhaas.  As one can imagine, way-finding was a bit of a challenge but we just floated from floor to floor and through corridor to corridor exploring the majority of the building, even hearing a bit of music along the way.
