Treasures from the past


More than an institution that shelters collections of objects with artistic, historical or scientific value, preserved and exhibited for public education or entertainment, a museum is an encounter of cultures. Although the term museum has not always possessed the definition currently attributed to it, it is known that the habit of collecting artefacts dates back to prehistoric times.


Of the various activities organized by these institutions, the most common are the exhibitions, although in parallel, amongst others, guided tours can be realized, as well as film screenings and artistic representations.


In Minho, there are dozens of museums that seek to portray the reality of the region – they are the museums of art, history or thematic, to the delight of those who seek, in the displayed objects, a way of knowing the past.
