“Worth more than one visit”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We are looking to go back again to spend more time here. 3 hours would not be enough. Each section is well displayed. It's the first museum in Spain that we've been to that even attempts to appropriately and accurately document the Moorish Period.

“A Small Gem”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

From Prehistory, to Ancient Roman Hispana, Egypt & the Nile, Greece, and Medieval Times, this museum covers it. It was recently reopened after an extensive 6 year renovation. It is lovely and definitely worth seeing while visiting Madrid.

“Nice museum to see if you have time.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was sort of a far walk from our hotel, but it was nice to see. Reasonable at 4 euros or included in the Madrid card. Lots of interesting things to see and a nice quiet museum.

“Excellent museum”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Large museum with lots of exhibits, do not forget to visit the recreation of Altamira cave outside, free with museum entrance but need to get a ticket for it from reception before going.
Perhaps a bit boring for small children, but must-visit for bit older children to learn about Spanish history.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We all loved this place. the egyption section was almost as good as the egyption museum in Cairo but without the heat. This was far better than we expected, it took a full day to get round everuthing.
