Portuguese Historical Museum

Portuguese Historical Museum

The Portuguese Historical Museum in San Jose, California, USA opened in 1997, and is a replica of the first permanent império (religious and cultural buildings primarily in the Azores) built in San Jose c. 1915. It is one of the featured attractions within History Park at Kelley Park.

Exhibits start with Portugal as it was during the period of European colonization of the Americas, and Portuguese immigration throughout the world, then narrow the focus to Portuguese immigration to the United States, then to California, and finally settling in the Santa Clara Valley.
