Long-term exhibition

Dedicated to the history and memory of the fight against the dictatorship and the recognition of resistance in favor of freedom and democracy.
The Museum's Long-term Exhibition presents visitors with a general characterization of the Portuguese dictatorial regime (1926-1974), its means of oppression on the population (through censorship and the repressive action of police and political courts), the means of response by oppositions, semi-legal and clandestine, as well as aspects of the anti-colonial struggle that led the military to overthrow the regime by military coup, in 1974. On floor -1, visitors can still see part of the structures of the building where the Museum is housed and an archaeological show raised from its subsoil.
Long-term Exhibition
Violence is in the genesis, the practice and the symbolism of an occupation process. But violence meets resistance, with different expressions and impacts. This exhibition aims to reveal and highlight various processes of resistance to Portuguese colonialism between 1926 and 1974, the period that is the object of this museum.
