The founding purpose of the Museu do Oriente is as a permanent museological facility open to the public and run under the auspices of the Fundação Oriente. Its mission is the promotion of evidence whether of the Portuguese presence in Asia or the respective and distinct Asian cultures.
The Museum is territorially international in scope and trans-disciplinary in approach seeking to, through the interchange of points of view deriving from the fields of History, Art and Anthropology, provide Portuguese and international visitors with a living and insightful memory of Asian cultures and the centuries old relationships established between the East and the West, particularly as regards Portugal.
These thematic fields correspond to a diversified cultural heritage of historical, artistic, documental, ethnographic and anthropologic interest dealing not only with popular culture and Oriental religions but also the most varied aspects of the Portuguese presence in Asia throughout over five centuries.
