Núcleo Museológico de Ortiga (Museum of Mação), represents an investment of about 200 thousand euros by CM-Mação, and intends to convert the old Primary School of Ortiga, a riverside parish with the river Tejo at its feet, into a Museum of Traditional Fishing Arts, something that is "closely linked to the history of that locality and its people", being that it was this art that had fed many families, who dedicated their whole lives to fishing.
The primary school building will remain in terms of its main structure, the interior being adapted to various areas. It is planned to create a reception area, and the museum will have two rooms: one will serve as a permanent exhibition of local fishing arts and tradition and culture, while the second will house other activities linked to the theme of the nucleus.
There will also be a space north of the main structure, in order to house sanitary support facilities as well as an amphitheatre space for the Ortiguese community to enjoy.
The requalification of the exterior is also foreseen in the project, where a roof will be installed where a picareto boat, traditional of Ortiga, the work of the late and last master calafate of Ortiga, Ti' Manuel Fontes, whose estate will certainly integrate the permanent exhibition of the museum.
