THE AGRICULTURAL MUSEUM
The Municipal Agricultural Museum is located in the former Pereira Alves de Matos Carreira agricultural House, one of the most notable agrarian houses in the region since the late nineteenth century.
The project began on the 11th June 2002, when Maria Leonilde, who was better known as “Dona Julinha”, donated part of the agricultural House to the town hall, on the agreement that they would only gain access to it after she had passed away.
Since then, Leiria City Council has restored and adapted the agricultural buildings and annexes in order to preserve them and create an interpretive, interactive museum circuit.
In addition to being a place in which to safeguard this population’s collective memory and rural traditions, visitors can take tours around the Municipal Agricultural Museum, which provides activities for all ages.
Play with our animals, have fun with our games and make the fondest of memories.
