About Museo Arqueologico Nacional, Madrid

The National Archaeological Museum of Spain is nationally known as the Museo Archeologico. It was built in the latter half of the 19th century, with the view to be functional and treasured as a museum which bears the wide variety of facades of ornamental artistry and archaeological finds from Spain. During the next century after it was built, the Museum had been briefly renovated and enlarged to make accommodations for modernised viewing and exhibition of the artefacts.

Among the numerous collections of different centuries, the Museum also preserves the excavations of Egyptian, Iberian, Greek, Roman, and the medieval origin as well. The main permanent exhibits of the Museum are the scaled model of the cave of Altamira, the Lady of Baza, Lady of Elx, Balazote’s Bliche, Guarrazar’s Treasure and the Crucifix of Ferdinand and Sancha.

Museo Arqueologico Nacional, Madrid Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very good for families and solo travelers! Interesting exhibits in a very clear and clean layout with English captions. Great facilities too! Free entry after 2pm is a great addition too!

  • It's nice place. A classical museum with touches of modern (interactive) approach here and there. Going to real places (if you can) adds more to the experience, though.

  • Best History and Archeology museum I've ever visited ! It's really impressive how much we can learn about the world's, Spain's and the Mediterranean's History in there. I visited in 90mn because it was closing after but I advise you to take at least 2h, or even 3h to take your time. Free admission on Saturday afternoon !

  • Amazing and interesting for anyone who likes history and archeology. Excellent visiting experience with rich information that suits experts and non experts alike. I usually get bored about such kind of topics but the excellent media, visuals, and writings made it a very smooth and interesting visit.

  • Beautiful museum! And super interesting. It was renovated in 2014 and the result is impressive. But it is huge so plan ahead a chunck of time.
