Permanent Exhibition

The Permanent Exhibition of the Museum offers to visitors a general characterisation of the Portuguese dictatorial regime (1926-1974), its means of oppression over the population (through Censorship and the repressive action of the political police and the political courts), the response of the opposition, semi-legal and clandestine, and also aspects of the anti-colonial struggle that induced the military to overthrow the regime through a military coup in 1974. On floor -1, visitors can still see part of the building structures where the Museum is housed and an archaeological exhibit raised from its subsoil.
