About Museum Of Costume, Madrid

A museum chronicling only the history of Spanish fashion wouldn’t be so famous, were it’s collections not among the finest among the world. Founded only in 2004, the museum is also a popular place to host several temporary exhibitions on fashion, photography and toys! Most of the collection dates from 1925, and though it’s called the Costume Museum now, it’s actually been renamed several times through its history. Occasionally, you’ll find the works of some famous local designer exhibited here as well. Another thing that leaves the visitors happy is the museum gift store – it’s always well stocked with quality items, and the staff is super-friendly. Everything is beautifully lit and displayed. In the lower levels of the museum, there’s a wonderful cafe/restaurant.

  • Really enjoyed this museum. If you like clothing and the evolution of fashion you'll enjoy this. The hat exhibition was impressive. Some of the pieces are stunning. I especially enjoyed the Balenciaga section. Relaxed and peaceful. There seems to be a little shop and restaurant both of which were closed. Some interactive and child friendly installations also. Worth a visit on a rainy afteenoon.

  • nice terrace bar, in a quiet garden outside the restaurant. Besides, the museum is interesting

  • Yes you can indeed finish this museum in 10 minutes. It's one floor, one circle. But hey, did you know that you can see this entire museum on their website? You can take "a virtual tour" and walk through the entire museum. - so it's free online! - it's free Sundays. It's free Saturdays after 2:30pm - it's also free on certain days, like World Heritage Day (April 18, 2015, which was when I visited) The museum kept true to the Spanish culture and history. Sure, France and Italy started much of the country's fashion influences, the museum emphasizes on the SPANISH history -how they dressed, how they were influenced, what they kept from the Spanish ancestors, what they added from the French, etc. There are leaflets in each section/room that tells you the name and dates of what you're looking at. Eventually the dates look like numbers (uhhhh 1930s.. 1920s...) to me. But for the first half of the museum, I was like, "ZOMG THIS IS ##### YEARS AGO!" I stayed here for 2 hours!!

  • Don't go here during July and August 2017. It's almost all closed because there's no air conditioning. There's a few small exhibitions but the main museum is shut. A little annoyed as the website says it's open.

  • Fantastic museum. A hidden gem
