Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom

Dedicated to the history and memory of the fight against the dictatorship and the recognition of resistance in favor of freedom and democracy.
It is a museum site and a historical museum that intends to fill a gap in the Portuguese museological fabric, projecting the valorization of the memory of the struggle against the dictatorship in the construction of an enlightened and responsible citizenship and assuming the fight against the excusing silencing, and often accomplice, of the dictatorial regime that ran the country between 1926 and 1974.
