  • Recommendations

    To make your visit more helpful be aware that:

    • At the Museum reception you will find special cabinets to store your folding bicycles.
    • The Museum does not have lockers for objects that have dimensions greater than 100 x 40 x 50 cm. We recommend you not bring rolled mobility systems as bicycles, skateboards, skates, or any other electrical transport, except those necessary for people with reduced mobility.
    • The Museum gives preferential entry to people with reduced mobility and their companions in queues to access the equipment.
    • Footwear must be worn inside the museum

    Children access

    • Children under 11 years, if not accompanied by parents or legal guardians, can not access the Museum in an autonomous way.
    • In case children between 11 and 14 years old want to access the Museum without the support of an adult, the customer service staff will inform them of the following:
      • Father, mother or legal guardian of the children must go to the Museum in person to fill out an authorization form that will be delivered at the ticket office with a photocopy of the DNI. Without this document, access to the Museum will not be allowed, except for the Media Library, which can be accessed without prior authorization.
      • This authorization will be valid for 6 months, so it will not be necessary to request each time you want to visit the Museum.
      • The customer service staff will accompany the children for whom authorization is granted.
      • If a child attends school hours, they will be informed that they can not access the Museum and that they have to return to their school.
