Ciclo de monólogos teatralizados en el Museo Arqueológico Nacional


Until 4 June, the National Archaeological Museum is offering a series of dramatised monologues that give voice to people who lived or may have lived during critical and transcendental moments in our history.

This new journey through the history of Spain told by its own protagonists takes place on Sundays at 13:00 h. in the auditorium of the MAN. It is only necessary to collect your free ticket at the box office one hour before the activity.

The circuit, aimed at an adult audience, is made up of historical figures mentioned in the sources, as well as others who form part of the group of anonymous people who have not left direct news of their lives. However, this is a documented and credible activity, since all of them were protagonists of history and now have the chance to tell us about their experiences.
