Image Museum

a stage for photography

Do you like photography? It doesn’t matter if you like taking photographs or just enjoying looking at them. With free admission, this is the perfect place to visit, any day of the week, in the city of Braga. Numerous photography exhibitions can be seen here and it is also one of the venues of the International Photography Festival – Encontros da Imagem.

Next to the famous Porta Nova Arch, the Image Museum (Museu da Imagem) is housed in a 19th century building and a 14th century tower belonging to the city’s old medieval wall. The museum features historical cameras and a vast collection of photographs; it regularly produces and hosts photography works; and it is also associated with the recovery of a vast collection of photographs inherited from some of the city’s oldest and most important photography houses, including "Foto Aliança" and "Casa Pelicano". Whether you’re from Braga or not, don’t miss out on this place.
