On 26 March 2015, the Board of Trustees of the National Museum and Research Centre of Altamira decided to maintain the schedule of controlled, limited visits to the cave of Altamira implemented while the Research Project for Preventive Conservation and Accessibility was underway. This schedule consists in one 37-minute tour per week for a maximum of five people. Strict rules about proper attire and lighting conditions apply, and visitors must follow the established itinerary and times allotted for viewing each part of the cave.

The weekly tour of the cave of Altamira begins at 10:40 am every Friday. Anyone age 16 or older who is visiting the museum between 9:30 and 10:30 on that day is eligible to enter their name to be selected at random for one of the five available slots. When you enter the museum, you will be given a participation request form to fill out and the conditions of the visit, which you must read and accept.

Dates and conditions may vary for different reasons, but any changes will be announced in advance on this website and at the museum.

The tour is carried out in Spanish.
