Abstract Alvaro Siza planned ten museums in five countries for over 30 years from 1993 to the present. The first two museums were planned in Spain and Portugal. Since then, various mass forms and external materials have been used and developed while planning museums in Korea, Brazil and China. Therefore, the characteristics of space and spatial connection of flow and sequence regarding the internal gallery in the Alvaro Siza Museum was examined. The subject of this study entails 76 galleries, which are exhibition spaces belonging to 10 museums designed by Alvaro Siza. These 76 galleries with the four parameters of gallery form and area, window position, type of ceiling light, and interior materials were analyzed. The research contents were structured based on two factors, flow and sequence, for the relationship between lobby and gallery and between gallery and gallery. The internal connection through the structuring process was classified into four categories: oneway movement, path selection, spiral circulation, and free plan type. In addition, Alvaro Siza showed the characteristics of planning using the combination of these four parameters in the gallery space and the four typology connection system in the internal space connection for the museum planning.
