Temporary Exhibitions in
The special presentation, in
2005, of toy figures conmemorating the 4th centenary of the first edition of
"Don Quixote", which met with great interest among visitors
to the Museum, has encouraged us to continue with this kind of temporary displays,
with figures from our own Collection.
So far, the temporary exhibitions presented in the museum have been the following:
- 2005 4th centenary of Cervantes'
novel 'Don Quixote' first edition (1506).
- 2006 (January through June).
On the occasion of the anniversary of Christopher Columbus (1506).
- 2006 (July through December).
250th year of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1756.
- 2007 450th year of the
Duke of Savoy's march on Saint Quentin fortress, August 1557.
- 2008 A multiple display
of a combat between Spanish and French Napoleonic Troops near Bailen,
in the province of Jaen, Spain (July 1808) may be seen as from January 2008.
Other similar presentations
are being planned for the future. Any suggestions as to further subjects will
