Just a short ride on the metro to the Ciudad Universitaria station gets you in the proximity of Museo del Traje. Perhaps the most fascinating and perfectly organised museum I have ever visited. Not knowing much about fashion histyory of Spain and Europe, I have emerged very much richer with the knowledge after this visit. The exhibition is structured chronologically... More

The building itself is beautiful and I liked the chronological layout inside the main exhibition. All the garments were very well displayed, with just the right amount of written information (in Spanish and English) about the materials, design etc. Some interactive parts and sensory parts which break things up a bit. Free entry on Saturdays after 2:30pm.

There is a surprising section in this museum devoted to bringing the history of fashion to blind people. A special path with raised floor markings designate the positions of mannequins in muslin outfits that can be touched to explore the changes in style and decoration over the centuries. In addition to the muslin-clothed mannequins, there is a series of unclothed... More

Loved this museum! I'm living in Madrid and working as an English Assistant and my Spanish roommates and I wanted to do something no of us had done before and this fashion museum was suggested. Great collection with interesting information about the way fashion has changed over time here in Spain and it was all posted in Spanish and English!... More

Situated on the outskirts of Madrid within the university area which is a lovely parkland site. The museum is a modern building and there seemed to be two areas. Ground level had an exhibition of pop star's clothes whilst the upper level (much bigger) had a wide range of exhibits including some interesting videos of the history of costume. There... More

Tino Casal was an entertainer and singer in Madrid in the 1980's. He was famous for his very extravagant costumes. These costumes were exhibited in this museum and they were quite interesting. He also sculpted and his sculptures of Roman heads was quite good. The museum store was quite good and my wife bought several items there.

This museum has some incredible fashion pieces dating from the 1600s. It's only 3€ and an absolute must if you love fashion. Take the metro to Moncloa and it's a 15 minute walk from there. It takes between 1-2 hours to see the museum.

We made time to visit slightly out of the way museum, and it was a highlight of my trip. I do work in the costume business, but even those with a more casual interest in costume and clothing enjoyed this museum. The pieces in the collection are in amazing condition and displayed nicely. There is lots of information in English... More
