This decorative arts museum is probably the best in Spain. One can understand how the Spanish lived in the past by looking at all the exhibits. Very few people know or visit this museum, but it is a real hidden gem. I enjoyed it immensely.

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).

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.

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

The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard

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
