  • Is a museum that really once it has visited, you das has of what you searched State losing so many years, especially if live in Madrid. A walk through the history of Madrid through paintings, objects of decoration and what for me is the highlight, the models. These models are spectacular, representing a Madrid at different times, even when there was the Alcazar. The Baroque facade of the facade of the Museum is simply majestic. A gem of a Museum, is free, take advantage of this wonderful Museum and visit it if you come to Madrid in search of museums and art

  • 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
