On the International Museum Day, the Aljube Museum wants to celebrate with everyone its 5th anniversary completed on April 25, 2020. Thus, we invite the outgoing director, Luís Farinha, to take stock of these five years of the Museum and reflect about the future and the challenges that lie ahead.

The video will be shared with everyone on the Museum’s Youtube Channel. (Link)  

This day is also marked by the reopening of the Museum. Where you can visit, or revisit, the Permanent Exhibition and also the Temporary Exhibition Jaime Cortesão – Citizen, Patriot, Resistant, whose term has been extended, and which will be open until the 30th of August.  

We are waiting for you!
