Círculo Dr. José de Figueiredo – Friends of Soares dos Reis National Museum is an association created in 1940. It is a collective cultural person, non-profit making, with public utility status, which aims to contribute to the development of culture, arts, and the defence of cultural heritage. Its main objective is the progressive enhancement of the Soares dos Reis National Museum.
Since 1942, the CDJF – Friends of the Soares dos Reis National Museum has published the Decorative Arts magazine MVSEV, among other publications within its editorial activity. It was directed, at the time, by Vasco Valente, then Director of the Soares dos Reis National Museum.
With public utility status, this association has centred its activity on supporting the Soares dos Reis National Museum’s development, increasing its collections, acquisitions and donations, complementing the Museum’s programming with trips, courses and various visits, organising conferences, congresses, concerts, etc.
Currently the CDJF – Friends of the Soares dos Reis National Museum has many hundreds of individual friends, making it a model in the panorama of cultural associations of friends of museums, as well as a very wide range of institutional members who support the various initiatives carried out on the Soares dos Reis National Museum.
