Living Museums-Living Museums exceeds 41,000 visitors in 2022!

Museos Vivos-Living Museums, a network that brings together 77 exhibition spaces in small rural municipalities nationally and internationally, has already accumulated 41,847 visitors since the first museums opened in 2018, although the largest increase was experienced in 2022, a year in which we received almost 25,000 visitors in total.

These figures consolidate this project as a successful way to enhance the value of rural heritage. The growth potential of Museos Vivos-Living Museums will be maintained in 2023 with the announced opening of churches and hermitages.

The network now houses 77 museums in total and its main novelty is that they are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Through the web platform and a smart technology system that has attracted attention in Europe, visitors can make individualized reservations at the museum of their choice, on the day and at the time that suits them best.

The system sends them an access code that they will use to open the doors of the museums, automatically turning on lights and any other audiovisual or sound element that will help complete the visit without the need for a guide. This has allowed the opening of numerous spaces in small municipalities that show tourists and visitors their cultural, ethnographic or environmental heritage at a minimum cost.

Managed by 17 rural development groups located mainly in Castilla y León, the increase in visits has occurred in the vast majority of museums and in all geographical areas, including Galicia and the Czech Republic, which also participate in this network. Over the course of 2022, 9 new spaces have been added, bringing the total to 77.

The areas with the most visitors this year were the Ribera del Duero Burgalesa, with 9,397 visitors, most of them (6,644) at the Torreón de Haza.

It is followed by the three museums managed by the rural development group ADEMA in the province of Soria, with 4,940 visits, of which 3,755 have been accumulated in the Aula Arqueológica de Medinacelli.

At the individual level, it is also worth mentioning museums that have doubled their visits in the last six months, such as the Museo de la Lana Merina Trashumante in Salamón (Montaña, de Riaño, León), the Centro de los Juegos Tradicionales in Valoria (Soria) or the Museo del Fósil in Tejada and the Museo del Árbol Fósil, in Hacinas, (Burgos), as well as the four museums of the rural development group Segovia Sur, (School and Ethnographic Museum in Otones de Benjumea, Museum of the Hundas in Arcones and Museum of the Martinete in Navafría, which together have exceeded 2,000 visitors.000 visitors.

Or the good reception of spaces that have opened in the last quarter, such as the Museum of the Book in Covarrubias (Burgos), which already has 623 visitors, or the Castle of Belmonte de Campos (Palencia), with 436.

The themes of the Living Museums are very varied and are closely linked or related to the territory where they are located, contributing to provide the visitor with complementary information on gastronomy, heritage, traditional trades, archeology, paleontology, geology, fauna, flora, inhabitants, history, ancestral traditions and many more aspects of the municipalities or the natural environment that surrounds them. They are a perfect complement to end a day of tourism or enjoyment of nature.

Living Museums-Living Museums welcomes local action groups from Estonia

In mid-December 2022, the Living Museums network received representatives of Estonian local action groups who came to Spain to learn more about the functioning of this project and to study the possibility of collaboration.

This visit is for Museos Vivos another step forward after the importance of being the only Spanish project that was selected for the European Rural Inspiration Awards 2022, which has given them so much visibility at an international level.

"The RIA Awards were like a launch to Europe, the Estonians were the first to visit us and I believe that more will come and we will be working together," explained the network coordinator, Eugenio García-Rojo.

The Estonian rural development agents toured the living museums of three provinces: Valladolid, Burgos and Segovia, and held working meetings with those responsible for the Smart system that facilitates tourist visits to these rural areas. They were also accompanied by the Director General of Industry and the Agri-Food Chain of the Junta de Castilla y León, María José González Garrachón, who at INTUR publicly stressed the importance of the international nature of this project.

In the province of Valladolid they visited the Underground Heritage Center and the Cheese Museum (Villalón de Campos) and the Avifauna Center (in Monasterio de la Vega). In Burgos, the Lagar de Valdeande Museum and the Torreón de Haza, which has registered the most visits so far. In Segovia they have visited the Museum of the Last School in Otones de Benjumea, the Museum of the Martinete in Navafría and the Aula de la Trashumancia y las Hundas in Arcones.

"They are finding it incredible, they are very interested and I believe that in the not too distant future we are going to work with them to implement Living Museums in their country," stated Eugenio García-Rojo.

For Héctor Ibáñez, manager of the Rural Development Association of Ribera del Duero Burgalesa, this visit is an opportunity for the Living Museums project to grow and gain more visibility.

The rural development associations of the territory are spread throughout Europe and often work in coordination to publicize the various projects. "This one of the Living Museum network has already attracted the attention of many different groups that are visiting us and looking at the possibility of joining," explained Ibáñez.

Living Museums Living Museums to incorporate churches and hermitages in 2023

The Museos Vivos-Living Museums network will begin a new phase of the project in 2023 with the novelty that it will be open again to the integration of new territories of Castilla y León, as well as to the incorporation of churches and hermitages as new museum spaces in the network.

This was agreed at a meeting of the managers of the 15 local action groups currently involved in the project.

The incorporation to the network of churches and hermitages will allow these properties to be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, through the technological system used by Museos Vivos-Living Museums, thus providing an opportunity for lovers of sacred art to enjoy them with comfort and freedom.

The good performance of this museum model has also been the cause of the increase in requests for integration by other territories of Castilla y León that could not join in 2018, when it started. This situation is now going to be solved with the start of a new phase in 2023.

 

 

Open museums to promote the rural environment

"Open museums to boost the rural environment" was the theme of the meeting organized this November by the Godofredo, Garabito and Gregorio Foundation at the Casa Grande de la Mudarra within the project "Castilla y León Importa" and in which the coordinator of the project MuseosVivos-Living Museums, Eugenio García-Rojo participated together with the director of the Villa del Libro de Urueña, Luis Enrique Valdés and the president of the Association of Rural Tourism of Valladolid, Luis Chico Luque. The president of the foundation, Guillermo Garabito, was also present.

In this forum, which could be followed through TwitterSpaces, Museos Vivos-Living Museums has once again highlighted how the intelligent opening system of its 78 museum spaces, all of them located in small rural towns, allows visitors to access at any time 365 days a year. An on-demand service that brings convenience to the visitor but above all helps to keep open many small museums that could not have been maintained with staff for budgetary reasons, since there are no resources in the villages to maintain guides or people in charge.

"Now, for very little money, they are open and creating a different experience when visiting a museum," said Eugenio García-Rojo.

Luis Enrique Valdés recognized that in Urueña it is necessary to continue working to keep bookstores and museums open, but also other services, such as lodging, bars and restaurants, a point on which Luis Chico also agreed, stressing that it is necessary to "create sensations" for visitors to a place.

The meeting also raised the need to deepen in a differentiated taxation for rural areas. All the participants agreed that it is essential to differentiate strategies by territories also when promoting them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Museos Vivos grows and incorporates two new museums in the Arlanza region (Burgos)

Museos Vivos-Living Museums, the network of exhibition spaces promoted by fifteen local action groups of Castilla y León, is not only in good health, according to the excellent results of visits collected this summer, but also grows. Two new centers, located in the Arlanza region of Burgos, have been added to our tourist-cultural offer: the Museum of the Old Schools of Castrillo-Solarana and the Museum of the Baroque Festival of Lerma.

The Museum of the Old Schools of Solarana, whose owner is the Neighborhood Administrative Board of the town, takes advantage of a space put in value in 2011 with the Leader funds managed by ADECOAR. A careful intervention that allowed its rehabilitation and conditioning and that has made it possible to have a space of interest that recreates the schools of yesterday, with all the original elements of the same.

This new resource is located next to the parish church of San Pedro, a spectacular 12th century Romanesque building, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest with the category of Monument in 2006, and a scenic viewpoint overlooking the Arlanza valley, making it a strategic point of high interest for visitors.

For its part, the Museum of the Baroque Festival has been installed in the former convent of San Juan, a historic building owned by the municipality but managed by the Cultural Association La Hormiga, responsible for the realization of this event that since 2000 is held during the first weekend of August.

The colorful costumes and elements that are used for the festival, and that this group has in custody, make up the content that can be enjoyed in this new space. The conditioning of this museum content has also had the support of ADECOAR, in this case through the agreement signed annually with the Society for the Development of the Province of Burgos (Sodebur), under the Provincial Council.

Promoted by the Association for the Development of the Arlanza Region (ADECOAR), the adhesion of these two new centers brings to six the number of spaces in which this successful smart visit system has been implemented in this region of Burgos, bringing the total number of centers in the province of Burgos to 30.

The network of Museos Vivos-Living Museums is made up of a total of 71 exhibition spaces located mainly in the autonomous community of Castilla y León. The offer also includes three others in Galicia, and another in Lobec, in the Czech Republic.

The project has achieved international recognition this summer after being the only Spanish initiative selected to compete for one of the Rural Inspiration Awards - Inspiration Awards/RIA 2022, which for the past four years has been awarded by the European Network for Rural Development and which selected it as a finalist among 111 applications from 24 different countries.

Bee Museum celebrates its first anniversary with a Honey Fair

On Sunday, October 8, the Montaña Palentina Honey Fair was held in one of the museums of the Living Museums Network, the Bee Museum, located in the town of Castrejón de la Peña (Palencia), which this month celebrated its first anniversary open to the public.

Since then, it has registered 316 requests for visits, which has meant access to the museum for... 1,138 people!!!!

We would like to remember the architects of this museum: Félix Herrero García, who contributed a wonderful collection of objects related to bees and beekeeping: APINORPA (Apicultores del Norte de Palencia) and the Town Council of Castrejón de la Peña, who managed to locate this collection in the old schools of the municipality, thus giving rise to the Museum of Bees.

Managed by ACD Montaña Palentina, a local action group that joined the MUSEOS VIVOS project in 2020, the Museo de las Abejas was the first museum in Palencia to be included in the MUSEOS VIVOS network and after the implementation of security systems, lighting and automatic opening, it opened its doors on October 1, 2021.

Its implementation has made it possible to recover, preserve and exhibit to the public real jewels that are worth spreading, as well as the knowledge of such a fascinating world as that of bees and honey, which was once and still is an economic activity of relevance to the environment and the rural environment.

Museos Vivos-Living Museums, the only Spanish project in the RIA Awards 2022

Finally, our project Museos Vivos-Living Museums, is the only Spanish project that will compete for one of the Rural Inspiration Awards (RIA 2022), in the fourth edition of these awards.

This has been confirmed through its website and social networks by the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD), indicating that they received 111 applications from 24 countries, of which only 24 projects have been selected, among which is, as the only representative of Spain, Museos Vivos-Living Museums.

A jury will now decide the winners of the different categories. Museos Vivos-Living Museums participates in the Digital Futures category, which includes innovation and new technologies. Its bet is the "Smart" system developed to be able to open to the public 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, a network of 70 museums located in small rural towns in Castilla y León, Galicia and the Czech Republic.

This system makes up for the lack of resources of these rural municipalities to be able to show their heritage and ethnographic wealth and allows in a comfortable and simple way to attract visitors to the locality, as well as to monitor the operation of these cultural spaces and the evolution of the visits.

Museos Vivos-Living Museums will compete in the Digital Futures category with five other projects from Austria, Estonia, Finland and Ireland. All of them have been selected because they show the benefits of digitization in rural communities. This year the theme of the Rural Inspiration Awards is "The future is youth".

The proposal of this network of rural museums to the RIA Awards has been supported by the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Rural Network, which selected it along with eight other Spanish rural development projects, although in the final selection made in the European network only Museos Vivos-Living Museums has passed.

In addition to the official jury prize, there will be another award by popular vote. Therefore, on the ENRD website all participating projects are displayed and the public is given the option, via a link, to vote for their favorite. The popular vote will be open until October 4 at 12:00 noon. The link Rural Inspiration Awards (RIA) 2022: The Future is Youth | The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) (europa.eu)

The award ceremony, both jury and popular vote, will take place on October 6 in Brussels.

The objectives of the RIA Awards are to increase visibility in the fields of agriculture and rural development, showcase innovative initiatives that affect rural communities, recognize projects in rural areas involving young people, and promote knowledge exchange and networking among individuals and/or entities, presenting examples of good practices.

Living Museums-Living Museums breaks its record number of visitors this summer!

The Living Museum Network-Living Museums has set a new record for the number of visitors in the summer of 2022. In the months of July and August alone, almost 10,000 visitors were registered in the nearly 70 museums that make up our project.

In total, during these two summer months, 3,007 visits have been managed, allowing access to 9,947 people. This figure represents an increase of 50% in the flow of visitors compared to the first half of the year, when just over 5,570 visits were recorded, allowing just over 21,000 visitors to visit one of the 67 living museums that make up this network.

"The increase in the number of museums has allowed us to increase the number of visitors. But also, and above all, the word of mouth of the 20,000 visitors who have previously visited some of the museums and that 2022 is being a good year for inland tourism and our museums have established themselves as an element of tourist attraction in the territories in which they are located," highlights Eugenio García Rojo, head of the Living Museums-Living Museums project.

A milestone in terms of the number of visitors that Eugenio Rojo can only value positively and relate directly to the important commitment to the dissemination of the Living Museums-Living Museums project that its promoters have been carrying out for over a year.

Nominees for the European Rural Inspiration Awards 2022!

 

The Living Museums-Living Museums project has been selected by the National Rural Network to be eligible for the European Rural Inspiration Awards 2022 .

We participated in the Digital Futures category, which includes innovation and new technologies, because our network of 70 museums located in small rural towns in Castilla y León, Galicia and the Czech Republic has implemented a "Smart" system that allows them to be open to the public 365 days a year at a minimum cost.

Thanks to this system we can show the varied ethnographic, environmental, cultural or artistic themes of the municipalities in which they are located and show the richness of the 19 territories of the local action groups participating in this project.

The Rural Inspiration Awards (RIA 2022) are in their fourth edition and the Museos Vivos project has been selected along with seven other Spanish projects.

Museums come to life in the province of Burgos

Museums come to life in the province of Burgos

In order to promote its rich heritage, Burgos is part of 'Museos Vivos', an initiative to revitalize nature interpretation centers, ethnographic museums and rural areas.

A land of unique landscapes with its own personality, where diversity and crossroads such as Santiago reign, the province of Burgos is a well-kept treasure in the north of the peninsula. A place to get lost in historical territories where even today you can hear the whisper of a thousand battles and the passing of authentic legends such as El Cid Campeador.

Combining culture, art, gastronomy and nature in its purest form, the region is part of the 'Living Museums' initiative, an innovative cooperation project that has been created to promote the wealth of ethnographic museums, nature interpretation centres and cultural spaces in some corners of Castile and Leon. A measure for the opening of elements of tourist and cultural dynamization that emerges in perfect harmony with the Action of the European Commission called Smart Villages.

When museums come to life

Living Museums' is part of the union of six Rural Development Associations of Castile and Leon with the aim of promoting the cultural, natural and ethnographic heritage of their territories, specifically in the provinces of Valladolid, Segovia and Burgos. To this end, 17 interpretation centres and small museums located in rural areas with a lot to offer have been revitalised through joint work.

With the incorporation of new technologies in their opening and self-guiding systems, these spaces have become true 'Living Museums' that can be visited 365 days a year and, in some cases, even 24 hours a day. An access code that accompanies the reservation allows access to its interior and to start the installations that later are automatically suspended coinciding with the end of the visit.

A new life for rural areas

The implementation of this reservation system in 2018, designated by the European Commission as the International Year of Cultural Heritage, means that various territories can have other elements of tourist attraction. In addition, once in operation, has been disseminated among the various tourist offices, accommodation, restaurants and bars in the areas, where it has shown a greater number of visits since then.

Following in the footsteps of history

The first stop on our journey through Burgos' heritage begins in Mecerreyes, where on Carnival Sunday the Corrida del Gallo takes place, a pagan festival that, although it was forbidden for some years, is lost in time. For this reason, the town has a museum that brings a little piece of this celebration every day through the characteristic costumes and festive elements, as well as an audiovisual projection.

Comic books and silent films have special importance in Solarana, which has a relevant Comic Museum. Located in an old manor house, this space tells the history of these genres and their evolution in Spain.

To the west of the Sierra de Lerma, at the foot of the Valdosa peak and the Cervera rocks, the passage of time over the landscape can best be observed in Tejada, where important collections of fossils and remains from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods have been donated by the local people and are now on display in the Fossil Museum.

In Sasamón, in the western part of the province, is the Angel Miguel de Arce Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art, inaugurated in 2000, the first of its kind in Castile and Leon. Located in what was once the Barracks House and Hospital for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago de la Orden de Los Templarios, it has some 150 paintings by modernist and contemporary artists.

In the region of La Demanda, Hacinas and its fossil trees which are over 120 million years old make this corner of Burgos geography a focus of special interest for lovers of nature and history. Its Fossil Tree Visitor Centre recreates the paleoenvironment in which these discoveries were made.

The last station of our itinerary through the 'Living Museums' of Burgos ends in the Burgos Ribera del Duero. A territory that pays homage to its rich heritage in spaces such as the Torresandino Nature Interpretation Centre and its interpretative exhibition on the peculiar flora and fauna of the area; the Museum of the Lagar de Valedeande, a place to discover how the history of wine has run parallel to that of the region; or the Ethnographic Museum School Day and Marzas, in Ciruelos de Cervera, a passport to childhood life in any of these rural villages throughout the 20th century, through songs, games of yesteryear and testimonial stories.

Visit to the Carnival Museum in Mecerreyes by the Director General of Rural Development of the JCyL

"On the occasion of the meeting that was held this Thursday, November 28, e Covarrubias between the Director General of Rural Development and the Local Action Groups of the provinces of Burgos and Palencia, the Director wanted to know and check in person the operation of the project Living Museums.

María González, General Director of Rural Development, visited the Mecerreyes Carnival Museum, which she accessed as another user through the code issued by the Museos Vivos computer platform. Once inside, she visited the space accompanied by the Delegate of the Junta de Castilla y León in Burgos, Roberto Sáiz, members of the municipal corporation of Mecerreyes (mayor, councillor and the previous mayor) and of the Cultural Association of Mecerreyes, as well as technicians of Agalsa and ADECOAR.

The Director General had already expressed her interest in the project, which is why last week she came to the presentation of Museos Vivos at the stand of the Junta de Castilla y León, during the INTUR fair. As a result, she even wanted to meet him in person.

Today he visited one of the spaces of the Living Museums network, reiterating his support for this innovative project which, through the use of new technologies and a simple investment, has achieved a significant impact. 

From Museos Vivos we are grateful for the support of the Junta de Castilla y León to our project, and for them we continue working to make it increasingly attractive and strong, with the incorporation of new territories soon, not only from other Autonomous Communities, but also from other member states of the European Union, such as Romania and the Czech Republic.
