With a history spanning almost 200 years, this exhibition begins a new era in the museum’s history. It is taking on a distinctive and critical repositioning that is manifested in a new look at its collections.
Aware of the demands of an increasingly proactive and knowledgeable society, it seeks to provide opportunities for new readings and new narratives, always valuing the cultural heritage it integrates and honoring the history of which it is heir.
This long-term exhibition thus allows a global view of the Soares dos Reis National Museum in a journey with two complementary narratives. The first reflects its history and the way in which the collections were integrated and the second values the artists and their works.
An invitation to appreciate the iconic works of all times and an opportunity to glimpse new discoveries in a unique space that belongs to everyone and for everyone.
What do we expect? To bring the Soares dos Reis National Museum closer to its history, assuming itself as a cultural and artistic institution of reference, with a collection of international dimension.
An essential place for knowledge, a special place for leisure, discovery, questioning, a place for people… come in, visit, see, observe, enjoy and… come back!
