Pedagogical Suitcases

The Miner’s Suitcase and the Aladdin’s Chest are intended for students in grades 1 to 6, aged between 6 and 12, and are playful pedagogical instruments.

The Museum goes to the Fair

Establishing contact with the local community has always been one of the main goals of the Mértola Museum. In this context, and with the goal of achieving greater proximity while knowing that people don’t always visit the Museum.

Guided Tours / Theme-based routes

Due to the fact that it is divided into various units that cover different themes and time periods, the Mértola Museum allows creating a variety of routes that meet the interest and knowledge of different audiences.

Guided tours

Museums by themselves are facilities that must act as repositories of the identity of the people and the territory, and, therefore, first and foremost, their educational services should develop initiatives aimed at the local population.

Thematic workshops

The Mértola Museum, in collaboration with the Campo Arqueológico de Mértola, annually holds several thematic workshops aimed at schools in the municipality of Mértola.
