MuMMa – Museu da Memória de Matosinhos mission is to enhance the historical and heritage memory of the territory of Matosinhos, crossing it with the individual memories of its inhabitants, aiming to reinforce identity and promote citizenship. The design of this museum is based on the idea of ​​creating a meeting space between the county’s past and present, from origins to the present, but also for the future. Housed in a historic building, the museum develops around three axes between which it is – and will be – always necessary to find a balance point. The science – History, the human factor – city people and the political dimension – public service. The definition of content and form were issues worked on during the creation (debate) of the exhibition discourse, whether permanent or temporary, always seeking to create temporal bridges considering the physical characteristics of the space (where conflicts naturally arise, and through debate generate balance points), presenting content that is not closed, providing opportunities for new dialogues, new readings, museography and programmatic revisions. The functioning of this space is designed, ideally, as a work in progress, a continuous cycle, subject to permanent updating, putting into practice a vocation of openness to community participation, a fundamental partner in the preservation of memory and in the future development of the museum.
