Bicentenary of the Prado Museum(C)Beatriz Ímaz

The Museo Nacional del Prado, one of the best in the world, initially called the Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture, and in 1868 the National Museum of Painting and Sculpture, opened its doors to the public with the name we know today on November 19, 1819, which means that during 2019 we will celebrate its Bicentenary.

Different musical activities, theatrical proposals, dance and exhibitions, among others, will complete an intense programme that will last until 2020, and which has begun after the opening of the exhibition 'Museo del Prado 1819-2019'
