  • A great museum for those who want to learn more about the history of Madrid and its inhabitants. The museum houses the largest model of the city and the old Alcazar. And portraits, paintings, coins and interior objects, supplemented with detailed descriptions, create a complete and deep image of Madrid. Free entrance, 4 floors of permanent exhibition and 2 interesting temporary exhibitions (one dedicated to the Civil War, the other caricatures of the history of the city), in the courtyard is a small garden with a fountain.

  • A find by chance, free and very interesting. It shows the history of MAdrid since the time of 1800 or more. Located opposite The Court Metro Station

  • Excellent. Stumbled across this while walking in the area. Great to learn about the history of Madrid. I'm very grateful it's free. Most other countries in the world charge for everything. Plaza Mayor looks better with trees.
  • We have wondered by this museum on several different trips and finally went in. It is free to enter and has a good collection showcasing Madrid's history. It was a good size, in my opinion. It wasn't so large that you stop absorbing what you're looking at half way through. I enjoyed all the maps and vintage photos of Madrid.
