The Museu do Oriente not only congratulates you but also puts on a party for you! The characters that inhabit the Museum rooms meet your friends and have a surprise for you. Our birthday parties are unique and packed with stimulating entertaining activities put on by qualified child education specialists.

If you choose to spend your birthday with us, you get to ditch your traditional zodiac sign, Leo, Pisces, Cancer, Aries or whatever and take off as a buffalo, rat, monkey, goat or horse!

At the Museu do Oriente, you get a very different birthday party and the chance to learn serious things in a genuine treasure hunt! In this very fantastic adventure, you can discover:

  • Masked Faces – a visit to the Museum followed by work on the theme. According to what they saw and learned, children are supposed to make a mask which they will take home with them.
  • Exotic Paintings - a visit to the Museum followed by work on the theme. Children will learn to make dyes from species which are later applied in paintings according to what they saw and learned.

  • Voyages and Maps – a visit to the Museum guided by a compass and followed by work on the theme. The creation of a postcard or map evoking the voyage the children have just made.
