  • A very interesting presentation on the palaces of the Pardo, Madrid, El Escorial, La Granja and Aranjuez. Royal sites where Carlos III passed different seasons throughout the year. The exhibition explains the changes made by the King in these palaces and its surroundings. The actual factories which introduced. It also explains through maps and plans carried out reforms, upgrades, hunting... 2 videos one at the beginning and another at the end, completed a magnificent and didactic exhibition.

  • We saw the two temporary exhibitions about Carlos III. Of the actual sites found us most interesting. The exhibition with funds of the Academy (reproductions in plaster from the excavations of Pompeii and Herculanp) was paid and most interesting (virtual reality visit) had to pay separately. Access to this last area is a little strange (Elevator after the inner courtyard) need a remodeling important to adapt it to the new Museum trends.

  • I can obviously not criticise the value of exposed pictures but it is the typical Museum which just like experts or very fond of art. For the general public better again of the many art galleries in Madrid. Is quite large and the building is a last.
