Portugal’s first GLAM-Wiki open access museum project is launched!!
Ming dynasty statuettes of zodiac, at the Macau Scientific and Cultural Centre Museum
Wikimedia Portugal has teamed up with Lisbon’s Macau Scientific and Cultural Centre Museum to make openly available 51 artworks under a CC BY-SA (4.0) license in Wikimedia Commons.
The first museum partnership of its kind in Portugal, we hope the project will inspire other museums to make their collections openly accessible via Wikimedia Commons.
Consisting mostly of Chinese artefacts dating from the Bronze age to the 20th century, the collection also contains important works relating to Macau’s history.
The project also led to the insertion of 295 objects from the collection into Wikidata and the creation of the Wikipedia articles about the museum in Portuguese, English and Mandarin.
