  • I drove by accidentally going to the Bernabeu Stadium. The façade was intrigued, a quick search on the smartphone tells me that it is a museum on the history of the city and it is free. Let's go! Really too bad that the place is not better known because the visit is long, well documented; a lot of topics are addressed, and I learned a lot of things. It's really a halt to cram in a Madrid stay to learn a little without affecting your budget!

  • The first thing is that it's free, so start well, the spectacular Baroque façade. Content something boring and but with fun details, struck me drawings ridiculing q gabachos 19 early hosts

  • A little-known Museum, where the history of Madrid surprises to each room, models, maps of the era that make you to know better the city of Madrid, located in the Central District of Malasaña has, has metro, with bars and cafes very close There is an American restaurant Steakburger with meat at good prices and if you fancy pizza there is a fence called Oven. The cafes to take a cane molasses are a little cheaper in the Masala.

  • 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

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.
