Maria Fernanda Daniel Lopes Gomes
AbstractMineralogical Museums of the Universities of Lisbon, Coimbra and Oporto are three Museums with their very own characteristics witch are becoming more and more the type of places of enlargement and illustration of knowledge in the area of Mineralogy, specially near a younger public, particularly near the secondary students who frequently visit them for the first time (an in some cases with low motivation), with their Biology and Geology teachers. To the vast majority of the secondary students, a visit in a Mineralogical Museum is followed up with a sensation of authentic fascination for the first impression made by the exposed mineral samples is very strong because of the colours, crystalline forms and associations they observe. But nowadays, Mineralogical Museums of the Classic Portuguese Universities are more than a group of mineral samples that are exposed: hall of them making part of more ample structures (Natural History Museums), they give priority to temporary expositions, collaboration with Secondary Schools, collaborate and even supply their physic space for the so popular Mineral Fairs. Being three institutions with different and specific museological perspectives, witch can make consider them, in some way, complementary, these Museums assume themselves, more than any other institution, as the great Mineralogy divulgers, particularly near the youngest layers of the population.
