10 museums in Madrid

1) Prado Museum

This museum, one of the best in the world, houses works of art by not only Spanish but also international painters. However, there is no modern art, the exhibited paintings go back to about the 19th century. A tip on the side: on Sundays from 17 o’clock, the entrance to the museum is free. But then there is also a long queue. So if you don’t mind waiting, you can admire the greatest works of art free of charge.

The address is: Prado Museum, Paseo del Prado, Madrid

2) Thyssen Museum

This museum is housed in a very beautiful building, the Palacio de Villahermosa. From the 13th century to the modern works of Dalí, you can admire just about everything that has rank and name. This museum can also be visited free of charge – always on Monday afternoons. If you want to enjoy a beautiful view over the roofs of Madrid, we recommend the roof terrace of the museum.

Address: Paseo del Prado 8, Madrid

3) CaixaForum

When I was there, I already found the vertical garden at the entrance very impressive. The Vertical Garden is a green house wall and looks great! This forum used to be a power station, now it is a cultural centre with a museum. The building also has a great café and a very well-stocked museum shop.

The address is: Paseo del Prado 36, Madrid

4) Sorolla Museum

This museum is located in the house of the painter Sorolla. Sorolla came from Valencia and always captured the Spanish sun in his paintings. In the museum you can visit not only the rooms of the house, but also a beautiful garden. There are both permanent and travelling exhibitions. Also different events take place from time to time, for example guided tours in the garden or in parts of the museum. For more information, please visit the museum’s website.

Address: Paeo General Martínez Campos 37, Madrid

5) Museo de Cera

As in many other cities, there is also a wax museum in Madrid. There, of course, the usual celebrities are to be seen, with a focus on Spain. The royal house is not missing as well as the most famous football players of the country.

The address is: Paseo de Recoletos, Madrid

6) Museo de América

There is a lot to see in this museum – more than 25,000 exhibits have been collected. Enough to spend a whole day in the probably most unknown museum of Madrid. The museum has a rich collection of art from North and South America, mainly archaeological, artistic and ethnographic.

Address: Avenida de los Reyes Católicos 6, Madrid

7) Real Madrid

Football enthusiasts must go to the Bernabéu Stadium. You can see the trophies, the changing rooms, the stadium turf and much more – a highlight for all Real Madrid fans!

The address is: Puerta 7 Taquilla 10, Metro Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid

8) Museo Reina Sofía

This museum is a little bit the counterpart to the Museo del Prado. In the Museo del Prado there are the old masters, here in the Museo Reina Sofía the works of the modern art are exhibited. This museum also offers free entrance on Sunday afternoons, but also prepare yourself for long queues here.

The address is: Santa Isabel 52, Madrid

9) Museo del Traje

The Fashion Museum shows fashion from all eras of Spain, from history to the latest trends. Maybe something different than art all the time?

The address is: Avenida Juan de Herrera 2, Madrid

10) Robot Museum Madrid

This museum was only opened in 2013 and offers the largest collection of robots. The special thing about this museum is that many robots can be tried out, so it is a real hands-on museum. It also exhibits the world’s smallest robot and replicas of androids from Star Wars.

The address is: Calle Alberto Aguilera 1, Madrid
