  • Passing through the door we saw that there was a temporary exhibition of photographs by Jonathan Becker and liked. Once inside we were told that you could also visit the permanent exhibition and we loved it: painting, sculpture... We had passed through the door countless times and never had occurred to us. It's worth the time. I think it is a great unknown in Madrid that is worthwhile. Recommended 100%

  • I think this is a museum maybe, not attention to which, the due are not exactly throngs that wear it, and however, it is a great Museum, very well organized and attended, in a framework that has nothing to envy to the Prado, (as is!), and contains paintings and some sizes of artists as notable as Goya , Zurbarán, Ribera, Arcimboldo (only picture her in Spain), Tintoretto, Bassano, Rubens, Van Loo, Vicente López, José de Madrazo, Federico de Madrazo, (Isabel II), Esquivel, Sorolla, Pla, Sotomayor, Vázquez Díaz, Lozano, JUna grey, Solana... as well as sculptures and reliefs of leading companies which are exposed and which would be too long to enumerate. I think all this justifies more than a visit. It is also in the Alcala Street, next to the Puerta del Sol, of step for all sides. Some days also offer camera in one of the patios music concerts... What more is you may ask? I recommend it very strongly.

  • We went to visit him Thursday morning and there was no more than twenty people (as well as an excursion of schoolchildren who made a very limited visit). We were impressed by the magnificent collection of art that there is exposed; find me it inexplicable that it is unknown to the majority; We knew the importance as institution of the Royal Academy of San Fernnado but not imagined that contase with a Museum of both level. There are well-known works of Goya (such as the burial of the sardine), Zurbarán, Juan Gris, Soroya, Solana, de Ribera, Tintoretto, Rubens... and the jewel of the Museum: an Arcimboldo. We also were lucky to take part in a guided tour of a volunteer guide (José carlos) who turned it into a memorable experience.
