  • An attractive decorative arts museum, if small. Free if using the annual pass. Certainly worth an hour to gain an appreciation of historical Spanish decorative arts from the 16th century onward.
  • I found it a little boring. The staff follows you very closely. I recommend going to the Serralbo museum instead.
  • Not a well curated museum. There is some nice stuff to see, but not worth the trip if you are short on time.
  • Great and quiet museum of antique Spanish furnish with a beautiful collection of textiles and old fans (ask the guards to show them to you).
  • The building is actually a palace among apartments. The use to have mi nterrsting but unknown expositions. On the 3rd and 4th floor, you will find examples of homes fron16th century.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
