The Prado Museum opened to the public on November 19, 1819 as the Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture. In 2019, Bicentennial was celebrated, a commemoration that revealed the path travelled from 1819 to today. On this special occasion, the museum wanted to reflect on the future and future challenges of this and the other great museums of ancient painting: the need to attract social groups that are not traditionally attracted to the collections, to encourage research studies on gender and minorities or the challenges posed by massification. Furthermore, the Prado Campus is expected to be completed in the coming years, adding the last building, the Salón de los Reinos, the former Palacio del Buen Retiro, an addition that will imply a rethinking of the current exhibition of the collections. The plan of activities for the bicentennial reinforces the usual program of the Prado Museum, insisting on the aspects mentioned above.
