Visit early on a Sunday morning for free entry and to avoid the crowds! This museum inside the stunning Alcazar is huge. There are different self guided tours you can do, I opted for the Historical tour and spent 2 hours learning a vast amount about Spanish History. Audio tours are available at a price but not necessary as all... More

The Museum is housed in the Alcazar, overlooking the city from the highest point in Toledo. Its collect is wide and varied, containing both original artifacts (uniforms, weapons, etc.) and recreations. I spent about 90 minutes here, and real militaryfans could easily double that time. I broke my visit at midpoint to rest and enjoy a cup of coffee at... More

The history of Spain is inextricably entwined with its military, and this museum goes to great lengths to show that. It is an amazing collection of magnificent uniforms and other military object. While the audio guide is helpful, it is not necessary as nearly everything is explained in both Spanish and English. Take your time in the museum. There are... More

I expected too much and it was kind of disappointing except for the terrace where you can take photo of the view of the alcazar from there. When navigating the third and second floor, we were just surprised that the visit was just...that short. Overall it was a short trip for us (except the amount of time spent camwhoring at... More

First off, Toledo is a great city for a visitor. Narrow alleyways, cobbled streets, outdoor faces- this is a sample of old and new Europe. I went as a day trip from Madrid but wished it would been longer. The Alcazar looms large over the city, river and surrounding countryside. Toledo has tons of history and the Alcazar is a... More

.... unless you are interested in things military. It is a very impressive structure from the outside and its history is significant but if you are in that part of Toledo go instead and see the El Grecos in the Santa Cruz Museum. Good views from the terrace. The restaurant in the Alcazar was very good with attentive but slightly... More

The audio tour was a real waste of money--the layout of the museum was very confusing to me and I gave up trying to make any sense of following the audio guide. I did enjoy wandering around and looking at various displays of how soldiers would have dressed in different eras. I particularly enjoyed seeing the life-size models of medieval... More

There is a huge collection not very interestingly presented nor planned. You really have to love this army stuff to spend your time there.

If you think about the timeframe this museum attempts to cover, it's not surprising it could easily eat up your whole day. If you have other things you want to see in Toledo and you're not a military buff, I suggest looking the map over when you arrive and plan where to spend your time. Also, the audio guide is... More

I was disappointed with the museum, i was expecting more from the Alcazar concerning the history of the Roman and Moors occupation, there was very little evidence of that. If you want to see all of the exhibits it will take you a minimum of 3 hours or more.
