Museum Time (De Museos)

Museum Time (De Museos)

Museum Time (De Museos) is the title of a series of guidebooks to the museums of Spain, written by art historian and international best-selling novelist Noah Charney. The first four guides in the series were published by geoPlaneta in 2010, and feature the museums of Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, and the Basque Country. The guides are also available in Spanish, under the title of De Museos.

The Museum Time series has met with significant acclaim, particularly in Spain and other Spanish-language nations, which comprise the primary target market for the publisher, geoPlaneta, an imprint of Spain’s largest publishing house company, Planeta. A book release event was held at Madrid’s Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in March, 2010, and the director of the museum, Guillermo Solana, praised the series, saying that “Noah Charney represents an important bridge between museums and the general public.” The books are available throughout Spain, in bookstores, online, and museum shops, and the books are also available in selected locations outside of Spain.
