Museo Altamira

Architecture

The protection of the cave of Altamira has been the main factor in the location, design and construction of the building housing the current Museum of Altamira, opened in 2001 and designed by Juan Navarro Baldeweg.

With its minimalist architecture, the building is integrated into the landscape to form a continuation of the essence of the cave of Altamira and has been designed to house the spaces in which the work of the museum is carried out: the permanent collection, including the reproduction of the famous polychromes room, laboratories, seminar rooms for activities, an auditorium, a library, and a shop.
