A visit to U.Porto is not complete without a visit to the University’s vast array of museum spaces and valuable collections, the structuring, promotion and publicising of which we consider a top priority at our institution.
While the University of Porto’s museum spaces are educational in nature, they also serve as ties between the University’s various teaching and research communities, as well as to the city of Porto itself.
This is why we give thousands of people the chance to discover our “treasures” every year, providing them with the opportunity to learn about the history of Medicine, Science or Pharmacy through centuries-old objects.
Aside from the museums, the entire community is invited to breathe in the fresh air of the historic Porto Botanical Garden, to travel through space at the Porto Planetarium, and to explore the University’s many other cultural and scientific exhibition spaces, all well worth a visit.
The University currently has the following museum spaces open to the community:
