Madrid is a city that’s full of art and creativity. It’s home to several huge museums such as the Reina Sofia, Thyssen, Museo del Prado and the Caixa Forum. There are also several smaller museums such as the Museo ABC of illustration and design, Museo Naval, Museo del Traje, Museo de América. Whew! There’s even more to add to the list, but for the sake of time and word count, we’ll move on. You can find a more complete list on this Wikipedia page. One thing that we should mention is that art and history are so valued in Madrid that many of these museums have days, or hours when they’re free and open to the public! We’ve written a very comprehensive list here, so feel free to check it out!
Casa museos are just as the sound: museums made from homes! The homes where the museums are located almost always have some sort of historical relevance whether it’s the house where the artist was born, lived, or died. There are several charming house museums in Madrid that should be on your radar because unlike the large, more modern museums in Madrid, these small, quaint spaces transport you through history to a perfectly preserved era in the past.
