Project by Miguel Ventura Terra and commissioned by the benefactor Valentim Ribeiro. It opened in 1911 as a Club Theatre, filling the void due to the disappearance of the Teatro de Santo António, which burned down in 1899, which was the only large hall for shows at the time. The first floor housed the Movie Theatre and the ground floor was the conviviality room of the local association, Assembleia Esposendense, founded in 1879. . In 1955, the last theatre play, “Esposende de Relance”, was staged, and soon after, it closed down.
The building was acquired in 1989 by the City Hall, which renovated it, becoming the Municipal Museum, it was opened in 1993.
