All roads lead to America

The Museum of the Americas, with its permanent exhibitions, offers the chance to follow the footprints of the American cultures and to discover their singular way of facing up to the universal challenges of humanity.

With a magnificent collection of Pre-Columbian objects (like the ones from Peru and Guatemala), from the colonial period (Andean schools and from the viceroyalty of New Spain), and from the contemporary indigenous cultures (from the northwest coast of North America to the Amazon), and using anthropological discourse, with respect for all cultures, the Museum of the Americas offers the chance to look carefully at many objects, texts and images which have told true and invented facts about America. This way visitors will be able to see how the peoples and cultures evolved over more than 12,000 years of history, how models of society were formed, their contribution to the world of religion, and which intruments they used to communicate.

Essential works


The museum's collection is part of the collective catalogue of the Digital Network of Spanish Museum Collections (CERES), conceived as a space for dissemination which enables visitors to browse the various museum collections using the identifying features of each item (author, type of object, iconography, etc.).
