of ceramic objects of the time. Through activation pro- cesses, participation and communication, re ecting and expressing their own approach, the visitors are invited to produce their own materials.

— Come see magic through our objects - Hands-On Activity
The Alquerque game is the starting point for a new perspective of interpretation (pedagogical approach to the exhibition). We seek to inform con- texts and evolution of the board game, dice or cards, throughout history, through small numbers of magic.
Visitors get to know the exhibition, ending on the last information panel. From that moment, they are invited to enter an imaginary world full of magic and stories. The participant will have to resort to con- centration, testing logic through activation processes, participation and communication, re ecting and ex- pressing their own approach to the challenges posed.
This activity was held in May 2016.

The multi-layered objects enable the visitors to under- stand the national or regional heritage in a European perspective. The 'bridging-the-gap' activities were de- signed to enable a closer contact to the Portuguese heritage. By this we intended to operate a 'Change of Perspective' in the visitors. The museum allows the interpretation of the objects and the visitors felt like they were really understanding and taking part of the learning process.
