Blink and you might miss it, so look carefully. It has a great, quiet little cafe, an interesting museum and an art gallery which was showing a contemporary exhibition of Instagram photography when we visited - oh and if you're a photographer or perhaps an...More

This was one of the places that I planned to visit on my trip, as my father worked for the phone company for many years here in the U.S.. Admission is free, which is always a bonus, and the space is very clean and modern....More

Not far from metro station Gran Via, there is the Telefonica Building, and in it exhibitions from Foundation Telefonica. At our visit in May 2018, the exhibition of Magnum photohraphers, "Magnum Enigma", was inspiring. Not the big events in life, but 'humane' conditions. There was...More

The museum is located on three floors. One floor has the permanent exhibition 'The History of Telecommunications'. The other exhibitions change periodically.

I guess it depends on your taste and what's showing. Our experience was mediocre at most. Nice building, clean bathrooms, poor exhibitions.

Not only is the building and staircase remarkably beautiful, but the permanent and current photography and 3D exhibitions are absolutely fascinating. Very well designed, informative and interactive. Would definitely recommend!

A suprisingly interesting museum in a building that is worth a visit on its own due to its architecture! The museum is not limited to the history of telecommunications, but also moves into the areas of sound recording and sound in the movies. Make sure...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
