Respect for our heritage and a desire to conserve its riches for future generations. Over the years Spain has built up a dense network of museums, offering a broad and varied vision of our history, our traditions, our heritage and our culture. Whether these are major national museums with a world-class reputation like the Prado, or else simple ethnological or ethnographic museums, they all share one overriding feature which has shaped their character; namely the dedication, scientific rigour and perseverance involved in their creation and consolidation.
