Madrid: culture for all the family

You'll find Madrid is the perfect place to arrange a cultural visit with your family. Many of its museums offer special services to guarantee enjoyment for both young and old. The Reina Sofía Art Centre organises children’s workshops, sometimes including a puppet show. If you like painting, you can create your own work of art in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. And don’t miss the CaixaForum where there are family concerts, shows featuring performances by clowns, a cartoon cinema and a variety of games to play when visiting the exhibitions.
Outside in the fresh air in the Botanical Gardens you’ll marvel at the collections of carnivorous plants. And if you want to discover some of Madrid’s monuments like the Royal Palace in a fun and different way, why not take a ride in a cable car, so you can see the city from the air? Another option for the more scientifically minded: a visit to the Planetarium, where, among other attractions, children can gaze at a galaxy through a telescope.
