On the upcoming 31st of March it will be the first anniversary of the opening, after six years of works, of the National Archaeological Museum in Madrid (known as MAN), which has better access for people with reduced mobility, a more modern design of the exhibition route and more space. Inaugurated back in the 19th century during the reign of Queen Isabel II in the year 1867, it is one of Madrid’s most emblematic museums, located in the heart of the city next to Puerta del Alcalá, on the luxurious Calle Serrano, 13.
Similar in its vocation to the British Museum in London, MAN has an important collection of everyday objects of different historical periods and works of art representative of ancient Egypt, the Middle East, Classical Greece, Roman Hispania and much more. Its “Essential” section is very interesting, with a selection of 15 items of considerable value that come with the help of an audio guide that completes the explanation panels.
