Haphazard - that was my sense upon visiting this museum. It's interesting if you have an hour or two to spare, but not a must-see, but I'm biased - I'm more into house and art museums.
On the house aspect of the house - it's...More
I thought this place cost a few Euros, but it was free. You need a one Euro coin to leave your knapsack in the lockers, and you cannot take any photos with a flash. The first floor was a little disappointing, too modern and some...More
An interesting small museum located almost behind the Naval Museum on Calle Montalbán with a fine collection of furniture, ceramics, glass, tapestries and reconstructed period rooms. The highlight for us was the Cochina Valenciana, a tiled Valencian kitchen, on the fourth floor, worth visiting for...More

My wife and I went to see the Manolo Blahnik Exhibition and enjoyed the exhibition very much. There were 212 different shoes that were shown in the exhibition and all of them were like little works of art and were very original in design.
Very small museum of decorative arts; furniture, tapestries, metal work and glass. The glass on display, on the top floor, is possibly the best part of the museum. Otherwise there are recreation of interior rooms and displays of furniture. The large cribs look impressive too....More

This museum is very small but is in an attractive old building and does have some very attractive pieces in it. While we were there it had a big collection of metal jewellery contained in large glass ballooons (see photo).
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
