The MAN presents a new temporary exhibition which re-examines Charles III, the central figure in one of the great reigns of Spanish history. As the 300th anniversary of his birth is commemorated, this exhibition contributes to a reassessment of fundamental aspects of his rule: Spain’s foreign policy, and the contributions of Spanish science and culture; and the role of the Crown in fostering knowledge.
