Links with the Community

The Santo Tirso International Museum of Contemporary Sculpture has established strong cultural bonds with the local community.

In order to carry out its mission, and develop a closer connection with the local population, several programmes and initiatives allow for more active engagement leading to effective inclusion and mutually enriching experiences.

As an open-air  museum, MIECST is not confined within its walls but reaches out to the community in search of new ways of experiencing art — not for its own sake, but as a means for a more empowered population.

A variety of services are thus provided to bring people closer so that they may enjoy inspiring recreational and educational experiences. These services include transportation, guided tours through the permanent and temporary collections, school programmes, audio guides and maps.
