The Museum Nogueira da Silva (Museu Nogueira Silva) owes its creation to the legacy, made in September 1975, in favor of the University of Minho by Sir António Augusto Nogueira da Silva. Original from a Braga family, he developed a philanthropic activity that took the state and the church to distinguish him with several honorific orders. The size of the building designed by the architect Rodrigues Lima, the garden and its location in the center of the city, made available spaces for cultural activities complementary to the Museum of the University Gallery, where temporary art expositions are performed; auditoriums for conferences and concerts; the picture library where are preserved several photographic archives and the educational services with several activity programs to the schools.

The permanent exposition includes an important porcelain collection, pieces of furniture, paintings, silver, ivory and some tapestries and tiles.
