The Insurance Museum offers an entertaining journey through the history of insurance, a tool that man has used since time immemorial to protect himself from unforeseen events and to share risks in order to minimize their consequences.
The exhibition traces the history of mankind through various milestones of insurance activity, including: the first insurance policy; the appearance of the first maritime insurance, and the creation of fire insurance for buildings.
Access to the museum, located at Calle Bárbara de Braganza, 14, in Madrid, is by appointment and for groups of between 10 and 25 people.
The guided tour costs 90 euros per group, but is free for students, Fundación MAPFRE’s collaborating institutions, and institutes in the insurance and financial sector. It lasts one hour and is conducted in Spanish or English.
The exhibition is open from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. It is closed at the weekend, on public holidays in Madrid and during the month of August.
