Teachers and students

We propose a wide range of activities based around the collection of the museum, that use methodologies and educational resources adapted to different age groups and learning cycles.  The aim is to complement, broaden and diversify the curriculum.  We also offer training courses and conferences for teachers. 

Recommendations you should take into account:

  • It is essential to book the visit two weeks in advance.  Afterwards you will receive a letter of confirmation that you should present to the ticket office of the museum when you pay, by cheque or in cash, the same day of your visit.
  • For groups of students over 18 years old: minimum 10, maximum 25 people plus one person accompanying the group.  For groups of students under 18 years old, 1 person accompanying for up to 20 students, 2 people accompanying for between 21 and 30 students.  
  • We adapt the contents, methodology and itinerary of the activity that you have chosen for students with special educational needs and for Special Education Schools. Inform yourselves prior to the visit by calling the Department of Education [(00 34) 93 622 03 60, ext. 1180] or write to [email protected]

Currently, the raison d'être of museums is the use that the society can make of them, the more intensive and the broader the better. This social use, in the Museu Nacional, has been organised in a social programme that includes projects, resources and services that allow the museum to become more accessible and open to the society.
