Real Madrid, through the Fundación, has set about restoring its history and making it accessible to Madrid supporters by bringing together all the fans' memories in one large museum.
In order to achieve this goal, the Fundación appeals for the help and collaboration of all those who have in their possession any historic object, by donating, temporarily transferring or loaning it for digitalisation at the Fundación. In this way, thanks to their generosity, they can be seen by all Madrid fans.
The Fundación gives every donor a donation or temporary transfer certificate, as applicable, promising to conserve the donated objects carefully until they form part of the Club Museum's reserves.
Some objects go on to form part of the Museum's permanent collection. Others are used for monographic temporary exhibitions of posters, flags, documents, photographs, etc.
The donations include the collection of objects and documents belonging to Mr Santiago Bernabéu Yeste, provided by his family, including his personal vehicle.
Donate your Madrid memorabilia and thanks to your generosity it can been seen by all Madrid fans and you will contribute to the history of our Club.
