  • The first room was the 1936 civil war but none of it was in English and my Spanish was not good enough to read all of the captions etc. The rest of the rooms were in English but nothing is in chronological order so you don't get much sense of a historical timeline. Mainly Madrid's history, small sections on bullfighting and how the city came to be. Lots on the Kings and queens. I've been to better history museums. I don't think I'd recommend this one. Gorgeous building though!
  • Great museum has a very good pictorial display and maps of Madrid through time. Visited in way to markets and worthy. Cheers from Australia.
