  • The Museum shows the evolution of Madrid since it was declared the capital of Spain. Very good painting collection, helps to get an idea of as it was the city in every age. Impressive from the war of independence. Free entrance.

  • The visit of the Museum (free admission) is a very good activity if you want to know the history of Madrid through numerous pictures, documents and objects. We could not see the top floor because it was closed that day, a penalty.

  • Museum on the history of the city which covers the period from 1561 until the beginning of the 20TH century. The best is the plant models with Pedro de Texeira map and model of Madrid in 1830.

  • Great layout and gives you a very interesting back story on how the city came to be. I read almost every plaque and each one had a very cool piece of the puzzle for the history of the formation of Madrid
  • Nice place to escape the heat for a while if you're out and about in Malasana. Displays are in English and Spanish, it's easy to get to and free to enter. The model of old Madrid in the basement is very impressive. A good history of Madrid in an impressive building.
  • Lovely Museum about the history of the city of Madrid. Shows how it became from a small town to a global capital of the Spanish Empire.
  • 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.
  • Nice outline of Madrid's History, quiet place not too many people, cool inside good intro to Madrid
