Popular Art Museum

Inaugurado em 1948, o Museu de Arte Popular nasceu da reformulação do antigo pavilhão da “Secção da Vida Popular” criado para a Exposição do Mundo Português de 1940, com projeto da autoria dos arquitetos António Reis Camelo e João Simões. Foi concebido de acordo com o programa formulado, em 1946, por António Ferro, então diretor do Secretariado de Propaganda Nacional (SPN) sob a denominação de “Museu do Povo” e organizado de acordo com a divisão administrativa do território nacional da Constituição Portuguesa de 1933.

Rede Portuguesa de Museus

A Rede Portuguesa de Museus (RPM) é um sistema organizado de museus, baseado na adesão voluntária, configurado de forma progressiva e que visa a descentralização, a mediação, a qualificação e a cooperação entre museus.

A Rede Portuguesa de Museus é composta pelos 146 museus que atualmente a integram. A riqueza do seu universo reside na diversidade de tutelas, de coleções, de espaços e instalações, de atividades educativas e culturais, de modelos de relação com as comunidades e de sistemas de gestão.
