The Museum Route in Madrid this 2011
The Museum Route has returned to Madrid, an event thanks to which you can visit several museums for free throughout May. It is a cultural promotion that is carried out in collaboration with the Madrid metro, given that the only condition for visiting the participating museums is having a travel pass or metro ticket.
There are seven museums and cultural institutions involved in 2011 Museum Route in Madrid. To visit them for free under this cultural scheme, metro users have to check the dates which vary. In addition, you can also win a Planetarium voucher and other prizes including scientific book kits if you take part in the “Science Passport” scheme.
Enjoy this cultural scheme launched by the Sport and Culture Councillor, Ignacio Gonzalez, which allows you to visit 5 museums in Madrid for free with your transport ticket (metro, bus, or your monthly pass). In this way, the metro and bus are not just daily transport means, but they are also a link to culture and knowledge, making them more accessible.
The first museum that will be opening its doors to the public for free is the Natural History Museum (on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th of May). Then, the Royal Botanical Gardens (on the 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th of May), the Geominero Scientific Institute (on the 14th and 15th of May), the National Museum of Anthropology (on the 21st and the 22nd of May), and finally the National Science and Technology Museum (the 28th and 29th of May) will be opening their doors for free as part of the initiative.
