LateRooms.com - Explore the unknown at Knowledge Travellers in Madrid

February 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com divulges if people have ever wondered what it would be like to venture into the unknown, they may enjoy a visit to the Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid, where Knowledge Travellers is on display.

The exhibition runs until April 24th 2011 and shares some of the incredible experiences through which early 20th century explorers lived.

It is organised into different time periods and geographical areas, with visitors able to view letters and pictures produced by the travellers from 1924 to 1936.

In order to contextualise their adventures, there will be newspaper clippings and other items on display as well.

The venue pointed out that the stories of people such as Howard Carter and Charles Woolley would have been a key source of knowledge for the rest of society, particularly when it came to unexplored regions.

People can attend the exhibition between 11:00 and 20:00 local time from Monday to Saturday or from 11:00 to 15:00 on Sundays.

The closest Metro station is Gregorio Maranon.

If tourists are keen to locate Madrid hotels for a city break in the Spanish capital, they could book a stay in the Westin Palace Madrid - one of many hotels offered by LateRooms.com in the area.
