"If you are young and have a passion for culture, then this will interest you. ..."

If you are young and have a passion for culture, then this will interest you. Because from 14 to 20 October, 13 public museums in several Spanish cities are organising a lot of different activities for you to take part in. Music, urban dance, graffiti workshops, strategy games, events with designers and photography workshops are some of the things on offer. This is the “Young Museums” project. Do you fancy it?

“Young Museums” is an initiative by the Ministry of Culture and Sport and the Youth Institute (INJUVE), intended to make museums a popular option where young people can enjoy leisure and learning. These are places where you can express yourself and enjoy your cultural interests.

From 14 to 20 October, 13 museums in Madrid, Toledo, Cartagena, Mérida, Valladolid, Valencia and Santillana del Mar are taking part in this festival of culture. The event will be full of music, theatre, dance, photography, fashion and urban art. For some activities you will have to sign up in advance on the museums’ websites. Also, throughout the week young people aged up to 30 can visit the public museums free of charge.
