Museo Nacional de Escultura

Because of the dramatic intensity of the works, the serene beauty of the building and its modern presentation, this is undisputedly one of the most unique museums in the world.


The religious sculptures by great Spanish Renaissance and Baroque artists, such as Juan de Juni, Alonso Berruguete and Gregorio Fernández, are some of the most outstanding in Spanish art history and the highlights of the Museum’s collections. This type of sculpture displayed a creativity with an unprecedented imaginative force in the 16th and 17th centuries. The combination of art, religion and power offers visitors a number of ways of interpreting, learning about and enjoying the works. In addition, since December 2011, the Museum also houses the collections of the former Museo Nacional de Reproducciones Artísticas

The main building of the Museum is the Colegio de San Gregorio, a magnificent 15th-century building devoted to the training of theologians, mystics and inquisitors, with the nearby Palacio de Villena and Casa del Sol buildings housing part of the collection


ACCESSIBILITY

Physical accessibility

Las sedes del museo se caracterizan por mantener en buena medida su estructura original. El recorrido obliga a salvar desniveles, realizar salidas al exterior, y a atravesar puertas angostas que limitan la comodidad del visitante. La reciente renovación arquitectónica y museográfica han intentado paliar estos inconvenientes mediante rampas y ascensores. Además, para las personas con movilidad reducida, ofrecemos un recorrido alternativo, sillas de ruedas y aseos adaptados.

El museo dispone de bancos, sillones y zonas de descanso a lo largo de todo el recorrido.

Hearing accessibility

The Orange Foundation has funded the installation of a serial of technological resources deleting the acoustic barriers for those people that use hearing aids or cochlear implants:

  • Equipments of magnetic portable loops that facilitate the comprehension of personalized information provided at host points and visitor assistance.
  • Magnetic Edge Loop in the auditorium that assures accessibility to all events held in there (conferences and meetings).
  • Portable wireless equipments equipped with a magnetic loop to improve the hearing accessibility in guided tours, concerts, lectures, presentations, etc.
  • Individual magnetic loops for audio guides, that enable these users to receive oral information contained in their own hearing aids without using headphones.
  • Audio amplifiers for individual people in tours, concerts, lectures and presentations.

Visual accessibility

Also, Orange Foundation has supplied magnifiers that ease the lecture of catalogues, informative panels, and informative sheets. Moreover, the museum’s elevators are marked in Braille and raised letters. Futhermore, the placards and all informative material are presented in a type of letter big enough for all people with visual disabilities.

The graphics that go with each work and the texts of each room are written in Spanish and English.
