    Until October 15 be presents this exhibition in collaboration with The British Museum on the competitions in the ancient Greece. Very good facilities and exhibition. In addition, the Centre has at its entrance a wonderful vertical garden. We organize different activities, including specific to children. The gift shop has a wide range of books of different artistic expressions and some fun gadgets. A great plan!

    It is shocking to see a vertical garden. But here, there is a garden that grows attached to a wall and extends upwards, but without abandoning the wall. To see it

    Large exhibition space which is worth to visit you by its unique architecture (both external as in the internal staircase), with an exhibition normally very interesting and educational interest. There are small spaces of rest and leisure for children and a shop that will satisfy adults and kids. On the 4th floor have a cafeteria restaurant that deserves to be visited for take something or rather menu €13 and even with children (€ 8) menu. You should not miss the visit.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
