Museo De Historia De Madrid, Madrid Reviews - Write a Review

  • An excellent and modern look at the history of Madrid using art from the various periods. I would have liked some more interactive displays. The map room with a model of Madrid in the 19th Century is easily missed (and should not be missed). It's a wee trek from the centre, so it's quieter than most museums and galleries.

  • Nice paintings. A charming museum where you can basically learn everything about Spain. Quiet and elite. Some days free admission offered.

  • Best place to know about Madrid's history. Great pictures, maps, stories, diverses devices and more. Free entrance.

  • At first, we didn't plan to visit that museum, but another plan went down so we went there. What a luck ! The personnel are lovely, the museum is very interesting with amazing pieces and more, very good written explanations. There is a 180 years old model of Madrid in the basement. 90mn is a good time to spend there !

  • If you’re looking to learn more about the history of Madrid, this is the place to go. The museum contains three floors full of paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, porcelain, and other artifacts chronicling the history of this great city. My only qualm with the permanent exhibit is that it doesn’t cover much of the 20th century, when the city was also transformed by Franco’s dictatorial regime.
