The Room LER +, floor 1 of the Museu Nacional do Azulejo (National Tile Museum) is an invitation to the reading of books and monographs on the collections of the Museum, the tiles and ceramics, and also publications targeted to young adults on subjects of art and museology.
It offers itself as a space for a pause in the course of the visit, where the consultation of publications is free, offering more information on the issues of permanent and temporary exhibitions.
The program carried out within the room Ler + seeks to gather visitors and guests, in informal meetings around the book and recurring issues related to the museum, artistic heritage and culture in general.
