Cape Verde’s museums are now preparing, with a greater sense of urgency and need, to implement new channels of communication and rapprochement with the public
Virtual tours are now available for the Resistance Museum, Tabanca Museum, Praia Ethnographic Museum and the Salt Museum.
The perspective for the coming times is to expand and diversify audiences, to stimulate and innovate the exhibition contents, but also to enhance museums as spaces of excellence for the reinforcement of non-formal education and a relevant part of the tourist and cultural offer.
Thus, museums fully fulfill their educational and cultural mission and transmit the values of preserving the national cultural heritage and identity.
