The civic involvement of the Ducal Palace allows volunteers to benefit from human and cultural enriching experiences. It is a path recently created which we intend to develop and enhance.

Supporting the monitoring of the museum, collaborating with the Educational Services, taking important action in welcoming visitors or developing studies, are activities that can be developed by all those who want to give a part of their time to a cause. Doing so they may acquire knowledge and participate in the preservation and enrichment of our Cultural Heritage.

Volunteers also benefit from free admission in the Museums and Monuments of the Direção Regional de Cultura do Norte and they have discounts on the purchase of products their Gift Shops.
