"From 9 June, Spain’s public museums are open to visitors after the closures due to the public health crisis. ..."

From 9 June, Spain’s public museums are open to visitors after the closures due to the public health crisis. Museums managed by the Ministry of Culture and Sport will open to the public at their usual times, prepared to receive visitors safely, with free admission until 31 July. Don't miss them!

15 public museums reopened on 9 June, adapting their itineraries and reconfiguring their galleries temporarily in compliance with the recommended preventive measures, to ensure visits are safe but still high quality. The first visits will be for individuals or family groups to permanent collections and temporary exhibitions which were extended. By the end of June, group visits will also begin again.

Admission will be free until 31 July, and the expiry dates of annual passes have been moved back to three months after the marked dates to make up for the shutdown period. We recommend acquiring tickets in advance. Please note that face masks must be worn during your visit. For more detailed information check the website for each museum.
