Pico Museum

 

Pico Museum

Awarded the category of Regional Museum, the Pico Museum comprises the extensions of the Whaling Museum in the town of Lajes, the Whaling Industry Museum in the town of São Roque and the Wine Museum in the town of Madalena.

The three museum centres have become tools capable of fostering the enrichment of Pico's cultural heritage and collaborating in the construction of its identity through the collection, preservation, study and dissemination of its collective memories related to the historical whaling and viticulture cycles on that island.

The Pico Museum, being the "headquarters" of the Advisory Committee for Regional Whaling Heritage, is responsible for managing the recovery and conservation of cultural heritage as well as for participating in the planning and organisation of Azorean whaling boat regattas.
