Regular Tours


Exhibition tours at MAAT do not aim to provide ready answers as to what art and a museum space should be, but rather seek to provide an informal space for experimentation which promotes knowledge and dialogue, a shared responsibility which encourages the visitor to take on an active role. We provide tours to MAAT Gallery based on contemporary art, design and architecture and science- and technology-based tours to MAAT Central. Professional educators and trainees assure guided tours to the museum's temporary exhibitions and to the MAAT architecture and gardens. Tours can be customised to the needs of specific groups and schools and are available in both Portuguese and English. Their average duration is one hour.
