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

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

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
