  • Lovely bright and airy museum documenting the development of the city from its very beginning. Clear, concise descriptions in Spanish and English throughout. A number of paintings on loan from the Prado art gallery. Recommended to those visiting Madrid and best of all it is free to enter
  • The Museo de Historia de Madrid is a small, but excellent museum of local Madrid history. The only downside to this museum is that not everything has English description. On the upside, it's free and there's more than enough English explanation for so many of the exhibits, it's barely worth complaining about. The collections of fans, porcelain and gallery dedicated to the Dos de Mayo uprising are outstanding. A special honourable mention goes to the "Diana and Endymion" sculpture which should not be missed. Another hidden gem in Madrid that a little off the main tourist circuit.
