Conditions

Under no circumstances will the spaces subject to these rates be used during normal hours of work and visits to the Museum, except where their location means their use does not affect the normal operations of the institution. The temporary exhibition rooms may not be used for functions when there is an exhibition being held in them. Additionally, the use of the spaces subject to these rates is conditioned by the priorities set by the Spanish Army Museum so as not to interfere with its principal purpose of serving as a cultural institution.

The Spanish Army Museum will set out a contract stating the conditions for the use of spaces and any other aspect concerning their use with the aim of maintaining the state of conservation of its collections and installations, and in order to determine the expense connected to their use that is not included in the quoted rate, where applicable. The total amount payable will be expressly stated in the contract.

The Spanish Army Museum will establish a series of necessary requirements for the formalisation of the requested hire of spaces, which must be accepted by individual and corporate applicants:

  • Events must include a visit to the Museum exhibition spaces, or, at least, information regarding the Museum and its collections must be provided to persons attending those events.
  • Any events held in the permanent exhibition rooms must take place after Museum opening hours. Events requiring special installations may only take place on Mondays, the day the Museum is closed to the public.
  • Applicants will be responsible for providing any special independent lighting equipment they may require. Likewise, any installations (signage, etc.) will be at the applicant’s expense. Applicants must supply any personnel required for their events.
  • The hours of work required to set up for any events must be approved by the Museum management.
  • Any installations must be removed upon finishing the event, leaving the spaces in the same conditions as they were prior to the event. Where any events are held in entrance or transit areas of the permanent exhibition spaces, those areas must be in perfect condition for opening to the public the following day.
  • All rules established by the Museum for safety and, where applicable, preventive conservation must be adhered to. Any non-compliance will result in the event being cancelled.
  • Applicants must provide any extraordinary means of surveillance and security that may be needed in order for the event to be prepared and staged. The Museum will determine such needs, and users will agree to the services of security guards from the Museum’s security provider.
  • Any media present at events may record the images necessary for their diffusion, while adhering to the conditions set out by the Museum.
