Archeology Museum

Coming to Madrid again in July and the archeology museum was closed during my last trip. Is it open again yet following renovations and if not will it be open in time for my July visit? Thank you.

There's a Top Question (list on the right) about the Archaeology Museum Terri, but it may not be up to date - that's the problem with those, people write them and then don't maintain them.

For up-to-date info here's the website:

Hi Terri

You will most likely get an answerphone message, but if you can speak Spanish then you'll be fine :)

Refurbishment of the National Archaeological Museum, according to the latest news, to be completed in the second half of 2013 or early 2014, although not rule out further delays. The works continue but the calendar is very committed to the current tight budget.

Thanks for that Revulgo... i did try calling them but my Spanish is not good enough to understand telephone speak at such a rate :( face to face i am ok, but to catch the few words etc i understood apologies for any inconvenience so i could have surmised it was closed, but like to give factual information so was hoping you'd swing by.

So sad to see you are no longer a DE, a tragic loss to the forum without a doubt, i too hope you change your mind.... :(

Renovation is finished, but the museum remains closed due to the lack of guards. Opening is set tentatively for April 2014 with an exhibition of part of the gold and silver coinage recovered from the sunken frigate Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes.
