The current House-Museum was commissioned by the artist José Malhoa to serve as his residence and studio. Valmor Prize in 1905, the first ‘artist’s house’ in the capital was integrated into the urban plan of the city growth. The Malhoa House was purchased in 1932 by Dr. Anastácio Gonçalves (1889-1965), who lived and organised his collection there. In 1969, following the collector’s expressed desire, the building and contents were bestowed to the State to create a museum that opened in 1980. In 1996, expansion and improvement works were carried out, with the addition of an adjoining house also designed by Norte Júnior, and the CMAG reopened in December 1997. In 2019, it was again the subject of renewal works to benefit accessibility, as well as the reception area, shop, reserves, and the Educational Service room.
