Metro de Madrid presents its new Museum Passport to publicise its artistic jewels
Metro presents its new Museum Passport, inviting passengers to travel round the eight great artistic jewels of the underground. This is an initiative whereby the Madrid underground proposes a cultural route to travellers to its most emblematic locations on its almost 300 kilometres of line
Any user can obtain a passport at Chamberí station, from the Engine Shed or from the Classic Train Exhibition in Chamartín station, and can then visit the rest of the sites on offer: the Pacífico entrance lobby, the museum in Gran Vía station, the Tirso de Molina entrance hall, the Carpetana Palaeontology Centre and the Caños del Peral Museum in Ópera station.
Metro employees will stamp the passport at each of the sites visited, which can be stamped directly at the following sites: the Engine Shed, Chamberí station and the Classic Train Exhibition in Chamartín station. At the rest of the sites, the user should take a selfie with their mobile phone where it can be clearly seen that they have visited the Pacífico entrance lobby, the Tirso de Molina entrance lobby, the museum in Gran Vía station, the Carpetana Palaeontology Centre and the Caños del Peral Museum in Ópera station.
Once the cultural route proposed in the passport has been completed, users may visit the Sol or Plaza de Castilla Metro stores (from Monday to Friday, from 7 am to 10 pm. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 10 am to 10 pm) with their stamped document and receive their reward.
When visiting these sites, they should remember that they need to make an online reservation via the website to visit Chamberí station, the Engine Shed, the Pacífico entrance lobby, the Caños del Peral Museum and the Classic Train Exhibition in Chamartín station.
The aim of this project is to promote knowledge of the Metro museum sites and allow the people of Madrid and tourists to immerse themselves in the history and culture that have impregnated the character of the capital over the last 100 years.
