Within the commemorating program of its 75 years, the MMI has renewed one of its three permanent exhibitions - the Seas hall.

 

The change in the exhibition discourse is very deep and has two purposes: to provide the museum a permanent exhibition dedicated to the local identity; to add approaches of the Portuguese maritime heritage and of maritime culture with several material and visual references.  The richness of this exhibition results from a reutilization of space and new forms of dialogue with the architecture of the building.

 

The richness of the exhibition that is about to start, makes more plural the heritage of the Museum, restates its relations with the memory of the local community and calls for a citizenship anchored in the sea heritage and in culture.
