the free, but by reservation, tickets are already GONE until January 1st. On november 19(?) they will open the phones, emails, etc. for the next months of reservations.

a bit disappointing. i hope to manage to see it somehow. i live here, after all, but this is the type of thing that enrages me.

Today was the first day I saw on TV announced how and when to get the free tickets. In the next breath they warned everyone there were none left until next year.

i guess time to look for an "enchufe"..(connection). Will keep you posted!

Well, Lin ... and can you imagine my disappointment when I saw that Bilbao and Madrid are scheduled for 2009?

Your story sounds like the tickets were already given, maybe to sponsors?

At least I have the "Velazquez´s Fables" at the Prado to look forward to.

I have checked a couple of webs, and it seems that it is not possible to buy tickets for the museum in Sevilla ahead of time.

Josele might be more aware of the situation ( maybe fnac.es ? )

Bye, Cova

Good news for those coming to valencia on weekends . It has been decided to keep the museum open ALL NIGHT, fridays and saturdays starting november 16th.

Free entrance .. no reserved ticket necessary.

I am not sure how long this will go on after november, but at least it is calming the complaints from the "pueblo" who was quite upset at the prospect of having to wait until january to TRY to see this.

I went to the Sorolla home in Madrid. Loved it. The museum/home is as interesting as his art. It becomes obvious how wealthy he became yet not extravagant.
