Experience with education value
The aim of the NewsMuseum is to promote knowledge about the Media, Communication and Journalism
This promotion is made through a modern and participative atmosphere, where information about recent episodes of the history of our world and its media coverage is shared in an experiential and fun way, with unprecedented technology.
The NewsMuseum experience has educational value for young people in the second and third cycle of primary education and secondary education, as well as benefitting university students.
For them, the duration of a visit will range from between 2 and 3 hours depending on the time available. Museum visits are monitored and guided by professionals with a background in either communications or History.
The visit also includes a mini seminar (15-20 minutes) on a previously selected topic such as War Reporting, Sports Journalism, Photojournalism, History of Media, Social Media, Ethics and Journalistic Deontology and the Theory and Techniques of Public Relations.
Visitors can download the NewsMuseum app, which offers a "Behind the Scenes" and complements the information available in the various thematic areas.
The NewsMuseum @ Zoom for Schoolsinitiative is also available, an e-learning program that allows guided and interactive visits to schools through video conferencing. In this experience, students are taken on an immersive and interactive visit through the great narratives that have marked Portugal and the World in the last 120 years. Several museum modules available in this innovative format are introduced, in a careful selection of the equipment's contents.
The museum will offer a bilingual experience, with all the content available in Portuguese and English.
