LUZ (Light Village)
opening 29 June 2017 / renewed in 2022

Exhibition focused on the unique recent history of the village of Luz, particularly on the period of the moving motivated by the Alqueva dam.
Objects from the past, of the museum's ethnographic collection and donated by the inhabitants of Luz, representing the ancestral crafts that linked the men to land and its natural resources.
Objects related to rural labor provide the framework to the documentary 'My village no longer lives here', by Catarina Mourão, and to audiovisual documents produced at that time.

In 2022, the permanent thematic exhibition was renovated, removing the core of agriculture and introducing cores already exposed in the initial exhibition of the Museum, namely: the beekeeping core, the pig slaughter core and renovating the abegão and the blacksmith core.
