  • 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.

  • Interesting and informative museum focused on journey of Spanish capital from a conservative & traditional society to a world class city. Conveniently located in an impressive building near popular high street of Fuencarall. Helpful and attentive staff. The biggest attraction is that the museum is free and open until 8 pm on Sunday.
  • Great under rated museum (& free entry!) about the history of Madrid from its beginning as the capital in the 1500s. Pieces are well curated with informative signs in English, and the curator definitely has a sense of humour placing Manuel Godoy’s portrait in between that of Charles IV & María Luisa (even if you know nothing about Spanish history you’ll find out why that’s funny when you read the signs at the museum).
  • One of my favorite museums in Madrid. The focus is on the evolution of the villa of Madrid from dusty settlement to royal capital, with lots of ups and downs in between. The building is a fantastic 17th century hospice that has been converted and restored.
  • Museum explored the changes of Madrid over time to a point. The maps of how the city changed were interesting. The Spanish Inquisition was completely missing, as it was in all the museums.
  • The location is perfect where is infront of metro Tribunal (Line 1). you will see everything of history of Madrid. There are 4 floors (B1~2F) and quite interesting place
