Traditionally, this museum is open on April 25, but this year, confined to our houses, we decided to open opened the museum doors through facebook. And we want you to join us, on that day, through memories, stories that you want to tell us, moments that you want to share. We want to hear your April Memories.

Just make a video, with your phone (no more than 2 minutes) or write a memory and send to memoriasdeabril@museudoaljube.pt or private message via the page Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom on facebook (@museudoaljube).

Until April 15th, send us your Memories of April.

On April 25th, we will share on facebook some of those memories,  together with  others from our archives.

We’re here!
