A Money Museum – a challenge in many aspects

Why a Money Museum in this moment and how it may contribute to a better understanding of money along the history of mankind.

The challenges – the classical architecture and a defense wall from 13th century on one side, an interactive approach and a modern design and concept of the museography, on the other. The relation of the venue, the museum and the city.

What do we expect from potential visitors and other cultural partners around Baixa – Chiado area.

These and other topics related with the project of the future Money Museum of Banco de Portugal will be shared with participants, followed by an exhibition of a 3D video of the project and a tour to the venue as it will be in May.
