Museo De América - Review
Spain had an uneasy history with South America – the European country ravaged and looted the continent almost singlehandedly. This museum is designed to maintain awareness of this uncomfortable history. It contains a great number of artefacts and treasures from South America, some of which are over 2000 years old. It also contains excellent exhibits of South American life before, during and after the colonial times, and shows the impact of those times on South America today. These exhibits are backed up by detailed explanations and authentic artefacts. Make sure to see the collection of gold.

Museo De América, Madrid Reviews
Excellent selection of art form the Americas, beautiful displays, not at all crowded and lovely staff. There were some very interesting pieces including a map from the 1700s that shows California as an island and the Pacific Northwest is completely missing. Unfortunately no photos at all were allowed. Only negative is that there were no English translations so I had to do my best to figure out the Spanish. I'd give them 4.5 stars, but I rounded up.
Love the place. Has lots of good artifacts. Very old. It was a learning experience. One thing I find odd it’s the overplayed themes about racism. I kind of find it distasteful. But come on and visit. Entrance fee is really low.
Filled with mystery and excitement. Exceeded my expectations by a long shot. From mayan gold to north-american hunting huts, from savage weapons to religious artifacts, it’s got everything and more!
One of the most interesting museums I have ever seen. Huge amount of objects from colonial history. You can learn about all the indian tribes and their culture. It is unique in Europe.
The Museum is poorly organized, in particular, no connexion was made between the different cultures in Northern, Central and Southern America. Furthermore, I could note that many objects were not perfectly clean. It has a scarcely furnished bookshop and a man was publically humiliated by the guard because a) he was sitting on a chair, perhaps containing the spirit of the Caudillo, while consulting three books; b) not only was the chair forbidden to a foreign ass, although there were no indication about it, but the simple fact of sitting in front of a ( female ) Spanish guard with a book outside the tiny bookshop is a clue to prevent a theft, c)did the fact that one of the books was on gender identity in those ancient people lplay a role?; d) no apology from the bookseller.
