The Museum at the Xanana Gusmão Reading Room is housed within the magnificent Portuguese colonial building that invites visitors in to the front of our compound. The museum contains permanent/semi-permanent exhibitions, including memorabilia, personal gifts and information on/from Xanana Gusmão. The museum also serves as a space for local artists to display their works for the public. Our museum is an opportunity for the joy of art to be shared and admired in Timor-Leste and is also an opportunity for knowledge to be shared. You may view more about our temporary and permanent exhibitions below.
