The Soares dos Reis National Museum is marking International Museum Day and European Museum Night on 18 May, with free admission and extended opening hours. On this day, visitors to the long-term exhibition and temporary exhibitions will be welcomed from 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM.


International Museum Day is celebrated all over the world with the aim of raising awareness of the role of museums in bringing cultures closer together. The theme chosen for 2024 is “Museums, Education and Research”, with the aim of emphasising the importance of museums as dynamic educational institutions that promote learning, discovery and cultural understanding.


The European Night of Museums was launched in 2005 by the French Ministry of Culture with the aim of offering a different cultural experience at night.

Long-term Exhibition

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.
