  • This is another large museum, and well curated too. The Iberian peninsula has been settled for a long time, even before Homo sapiens appeared. The museum mostly tells the story chronologically from a ...  more »
  • Saturday afternoon and Sunday is free. The audioguide costs 2 euros and is an interactive tablet. The basic course lasts at least two hours. Fantastic multimedia points in all rooms of the Museum.

  • Many wanted to see it for a long time, but I had not had the opportunity. I has not let down at all, your tour by Spain, from prehistoric times to our days, having 2 collections apart from Egypt and Greece. Boasts some spectacular audiovisual that serve as introduction to what you will see in the room or sitting area. It has very important and difficult to find pieces which have given much information from the daily life of different populations at different times. I just have to put two buts, esper or in brief, they are served to make this perfect visit: is a very educational and enjoyable journey. The videoguides are fine, but should have a guide service available to the public without having to book it in advance, but for hours, to see it from another perspective. Similarly, all all the audiovisual material that exists the Museum, cannot be purchased in the gift shop in audiovisual format (for example, on CD). If this were so, I am sure that the Museum would be an important source of income since many people ask for this material every day. In short, I was delighted and repeat another day without problems.

  • Probably the best museum we have ever visited. Well planned & thorough information, & cheap entry! The audio guide kept you moving. Spent 5 hours & didn't get to the end. They very quickly & abruptly escort you out.
  • Very spacious building filled with bibliographical artifacts in Spanish culture. We were told there was an English-speaking area that we could browse - never found it. Staff was very friendly and courteous so that is always a plus. If you have a basic understanding of Spanish you can still visit here.
  • Sold us tickets with one hour left. I assumed we would be kicked out by 7:55 or 8. Nope. 7:45. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Tell people that BEFORE you sell them the tickets. When I asked to at least finish the room we were in they said no. What is it with Spanish female security guards and being rude to tourists. Get a different job if you can’t be friendly.
  • Very interesting content. Very attractive layout and display with multi-media. Definitely worth a (longer) visit (I stayed there for almost 3 hours). Not very busy before noon and super inexpensive (3 euro!!).
  • Amazing for the price. Very big and lots of English translations! Make sure you eat and go to the toilet before hand! Well worth the €3
