The National Museum of Natural Sciencies: a unique place in Madrid. From December 2010 new exhibits of Geology, Zoology, Paleontology and Human Evolution are on display. It is worth a visit!

It cost 19€ (for 2 of us and we did not have a guide or the audio to explain each exhibit) when the site said it was 6€ each. The place has some interesting things, but a lot of it is empty or closed off...More

This is a museum which is in two halves, so make sure that you go into BOTH areas (entrances about 200m apart). From fossils/prehistoric animals through to sharks/whales and birds, all very well displayed/laid out. The details are listed in Spanish, with about 10% having...More
