The Pius XII Museum is where the people are, in its cultural manifestations and/or festivals. It also collaborates with all institutions which interact with the social, cultural, celebratory lives of our people.
For this reason, the Pius XII Museum collaborates and takes part in the White Night (Noite Branca), the São João Painting Competition, the National Museum Day (free admission), and Braga Easter festivities.
Additionally, the Museum collaborates with the University of Minho (folkloric group, students), with Braga’s Public Library, with the Circus Theatre, Braga Hospital and Braga City Council.
Open to the community – the Pius XII Museum has and will continue to assert itself this way.
Collaborating with all current artists, the Museum has given life, in partnership with Braga City Council and the Metropolitan Chapter of Braga Cathedral, to a set of publications that are joined together under the title Artists from/in Braga.
Some artists have already been presented: João Osvaldo; Levi Guerra; Henrique Medina. Others will follow. We believe this will be a great service to culture, in the present and the future!
The opening to new artists and new languages led the Pius XII Museum to organise, in 2018, the first Biennial of Religious Art in the city of Braga.
