  • Surprised us by the huge quantity of paintings, sculptures and many other historical objects that show a part of the history of Spain. Are three separate floors chronologically, very well organized and extremely well care is administered. DOES NOT CHARGE ENTRY.

  • A little-known in Madrid Museum, wonderful Spanish Baroque façade is worth seeing. There are permanent exhibitions and guided tour. In its day was the Hospice of Madrid. You are explaining the evolution and as grows the city from the 16th century to the 19th century. There are exposed models of Madrid and one of them is possibly the biggest and most important in Europe showing Madrid in 1830. Out, you can do the survey for the needs and demands and to improve the Museum. Photos can be made but without flash and the entrance is free.

  • In the Malasaña area next to the metro Court this (former Hospice and Municipal House) Museum with an impressive Baroque façade, which houses paintings, drawings, objects and models from the 16th to the 19th century in the city of Madrid. Include "The joy of the Villa de Madrid" by Goya and of course one of the models (18m 2) most important of Europe in plant - 1 (Madrid, 1830). A curious fact, its first director was Manuel Machado. Totally free access until 20:00 hours.

  • At first, we didn't plan to visit that museum, but another plan went down so we went there. What a luck ! The personnel are lovely, the museum is very interesting with amazing pieces and more, very good written explanations. There is a 180 years old model of Madrid in the basement. 90mn is a good time to spend there !
  • Lovely small museum to spend an afternoon learning about the city history of Madrid. Well thought out, not overcrowded or overwhelmingly large. Admission is free, so definitely worth a stop.
  • Nicely presented museum about Madrid. Well worth a visit especially if you know the city as it gives you details about how it developed. Has a fascinating model of 1830s Madrid - used the be in the municipal buildings by Cruz de Rayo metro - that you can spend hours looking at. Building has been beautifully restored. Entrance is free. Some of the staff are very helpful, others should start thinking of career change i.e where they wouldn't have to come into contact with people.
  • This museum is a good 1-1.5hr visit if you are interested in the unique history of the city of Madrid. The ground floor (-1) has a large ~850:1 scale model of Madrid from a couple of hundred years ago. Worth the visit and no charge to enter.
  • A fantastic small museum in the center of the city which gives you all the history of Madrid in a very nice way .The front of the building was restored and has a very impressive old entrance
