  • A really nice museum to spend few hours during the hot days in Madrid. maybe you'd expect to see an old museum with some very old objects, but it is very modern and very good looking on the inside.
  • This is one of the best museums that I've ever been to in the world. The exhibits cover prehistory to the modern-day and go in depth into all the cultures which of been present in Iberia. There are a vast selection of priceless artifacts, informative plaques all very well organized. If you were at all interested in history in anthropology I highly recommend visiting this museum.
  • Interesting variety in exhibition and very well kept. A few hours are needed to see everything if you're one of those who like to browse around museums.
  • Good museum to use a couple of houers. Very interesting how they have made floor with the development of humans in spain
  • Recently renovated, this museum is large, spacious and comfortable to walk through. There are some very nice works of art on display, and from what I recall descriptions were in both Spanish and English. Like many museums, the museum is split into room and certain groups of room focus on various historical eras.There is a lack of 'clutter' in the display of everything in this museum and I think it contributes to how at east you feel walking through Museo Arqueologico Nacional. There are quite a few floors, so I suggest working from the top back down to the museum entrance floor. Grabbing a map on the way into the museum will help you navigate your way and give you a sense of where you are. The map of the museum also highlights 10 singular pieces of interest, so look out for them! At 3 Euros for a full priced admission (1.50 Euros for concession, international student cards accepted!) this is a museum worth going into. Taken from the museum's website, admission is free Saturday from 14:00 and Sunday mornings, on May 18, International Museum Day |October 12, National Day of Spain |November 16, World Heritage Day | 6 December, Spanish Constitution Day
