This stamp issue is an integral part of a work dedicated to Portuguesemuseological heritage, the rst volume of which is now coming to light. True guardians of memory, the thirteen century-old museums that arepresented here were all founded between 1772 and 1894, in a period marked by extraordinary advances, having each one of them its own story to tell. A unique story that distinguishes it from all others. A story of resilience marked by the will to thrive in often adverse circumstances, and which made them repeatedly reinvent themselves up to the present day. Distributed throughout the national territory, on the mainland and onthe islands, from the coast to the interior, these century-old museums,both public and private, act as bridges between the monuments, places and communities that form them.
