  • Although the exhibition does not strike the scale, and the museum itself is not in the Center, people interested in fashion and clothing stories, the Museum should enjoy the soul.

  • The museo del Traje in Madrid it was a really nice surprise, and besides making me amazed at the amount of costumes (in excellent condition) throughout the exhibition "parallel" around the history of costume and clothing and textiles. The cost of the Museum (like most museums) is derisory 3 € but is free on Sunday morning (just be careful because closes at 15) the tour begins with a series of typical costumes/Spanish folk and then continue with clothes (mostly female) from 1600 onwards. They are all well preserved specimens and well exposed. The lighting is very scenic but not too difficult to do and makes clothes enhances your photos (but I guess it is a problem not to ruin your clothes with lights too strong). It makes a nice long ride over the centuries and seeing an evolution of the clothes. . Perhaps there soon few explanations on clothes (apart from the model and the period very little info). Are there any "cardstock" informative gathering clothes but could be more interactive in my opinion. There are also a few videos here and there which tell the story of the clothes in General (from Roman tunics and showing how they wore). . Finished the tour of clothes goes around "outside" which explains how the fabrics, such as stain, as they change the shapes of the Dummies, you can make some funny picture with clothes or media faces, you can try wearing a vintage gonnello or jacket or platform shoes. In short, a couple of hours go by without you SKOR. There is the possibility to download an app (museum experience) that does a little audio guide. The Museum is a little out of the way but if you are going to see the lighthouse of Moncloa is right there close. Also recommended the Museo de America which just below the lighthouse.

  • The location is impressive, half empty. The problem is that you have to arrive there and it's not that easy. I went on a free day and it was nice, but most of the windows was closed to be refurnished so lotsof people were upset.
  • good place
