YES. Rental of Museum space is an option exclusively reserved for companies collaborating in the Corporate Members Program.
This said, exceptions may be made for professional or medical associations, institutions and charities. The Museum will study each request individually. If accepted, the organizing institutions are not obliged to join the Corporate Members Program, but simply have to pay the cost of renting the venue.
The Museum Auditorium holds 300 people and has all of the necessary audiovisual equipment, making it the ideal venue for meetings and conferences. The quality of its materials contributes to creating a pleasant atmosphere, even in the case of fewer participants. For smaller meetings, the Museum has an Education Room, the availability of which is limited by its use for Museum activities.
You can organize company or incentive meetings, product launches, prize-giving ceremonies, press conferences, etc. However, you cannot organize fund-raising events, auctions, or events requiring the payment of an entrance fee.
No, we only admit corporate events. Events like weddings, graduation ceremonies, anniversaries or birthdays are not permitted.
Events held in the Auditorium can take place at any time of day. Those organized in the Hall and the Atrium can start at 7 pm from Tuesday to Sunday and at any time on Monday. Guided tours and catering preparations can begin at this time. Cocktail parties or evening meals held from Tuesday to Sunday must begin after 8:30 pm.
In the case of catering, yes: the IXO grupo provides catering services for all events. Similarly, guided tours, security, and the coatroom service can only be provided by the Museum through its suppliers.
Other services (audiovisual, hostesses, etc.) can be provided by any company.
Exclusive private tours can be organized for the guests at an event after the Museum closing time. In principle, it is not possible to organize private guided tours without having rented a venue.
