Bull fighting is an integral part of the history of Spain and as a result to that, a museum dedicated to this sport has been founded in the capital of the country which is Madrid. This place was founded back in the 1929 and most of the artefacts and other things had been donated by Luis Moroder Peiro and Jose Bayard Badila. Both of the mentioned people were collectors of bull fighting mementos and the collected quite a large number of Valencian objects and bullfighting memorabilia in the late 19th and early 20th century and then they donated all of them to make this museum.
Over the years, the museum has also gathered a big number of other artefacts and things associated with bull fighting and now it is one of the oldest and most significant centres regarding bullfighting lore and collection in whole Spain. The museum has a permanent exhibition dedicated to the gradual changes and development in the tradition of the game of bull fighting. Visiting this will help you to understand the history and also the present state of the game and you can also gather more information on the topic from the library and archives of the museum as well.

Very interesting attraction if you’re looking to inform yourself about the bullfights. Also recommend the stadium tour
This sport or shows or whatever they are called are pure cruel. I don't understand the enjoyment in seeing an animal being stabbed to death. This is so immoral. The museum is currently under renovation. The architecture is nice though.
Very interesting and an awesome place to visit. The audioguide, however, is too long. My patience ran out quite early on.
I forgot what I was doing here
Great range of art and costumes
