In addition to educational events and tours, the Vista Alegre Museum also engages in divulgation and management activities related to its heritage.
The Vista Alegre Museum can help you identify your Vista Alegre pieces. Please send good resolution images of your piece(s) and of the corresponding VA hallmark(s) to our e-mail address, or by letter. The Museum does not provide valuation services, orally or in writing.

Any requests to view the collections and/or the document archives should be timely submitted to the Museum Administration. Requests shall be subject to institution and employee availability.
