  • Located near the subway. Stepping out of the subway you will immediately see a beautiful palace, which houses a museum. It contains a large collection of paintings and objects of decorative and applied art from the 16th century, including maps of Velazquez, Goyi, etc. Spanish masters. It is possible to trace the development of painting together with the change of the urban environment, the appearance of the inhabitants of Madrid, culture, etc. Is great and diverse collection of lovers - an indispensable attribute of Spanish ladies. For the first time ever, we saw an exhibition dedicated to the Civil War of 1936-1938. It is a show of the tragedy of madrid bombings by Francoist aircraft. The screen shows footage of Soviet and French documentaries about bombings made during the war. The exhibition showing the development of science and technology in the early 20th world through the subjects of material culture is also interesting.

  • The first room was the 1936 civil war but none of it was in English and my Spanish was not good enough to read all of the captions etc. The rest of the rooms were in English but nothing is in chronological order so you don't get much sense of a historical timeline. Mainly Madrid's history, small sections on bullfighting and how the city came to be. Lots on the Kings and queens. I've been to better history museums. I don't think I'd recommend this one. Gorgeous building though!
  • Great museum has a very good pictorial display and maps of Madrid through time. Visited in way to markets and worthy. Cheers from Australia.
