Reaching Toledo, the Alcazar is something that can't pass unnoticed: big, dominating the city, it's a very old structure that passed the ages and various reconstruction styles to be what is today. In the inside there's a museum, the army one. Starting from the medieval times to the XX century, it's an historical museum dedicated to the ones who like... More

We are not big on military relics, but to understand 'recent' Spanish history, one needs to understand its wars. The museum describes the periods from the 15th C. Catholic monarchs through the present through the context of their military history. Admittedly, it downplays the Civil War, but the others are well covered. Portraits of important personages help with the interpretation.... More

I am not a huge museum person, but I loved this one! It is huge and has relics from many different time periods. I was fascinated by everything, as well as the structure of the Alcazar itself. Just went I thought I was done with the museum, I discovered there was another floor and I felt like that kept happening... More

Fantastic place. It is enormous, so plan for a long visit, but it is so absolutely worth it. The building includes Roman ruins, Visigoth walls, and more! The buiding alone is worth a visit, but the site also houses a magnificient museum. You must not miss this when you go to Toledo. I willl return, since one visit is not... More

Apparently one of the most visited monuments in Spain, although not worth a visit. Very touristic, very predictable. A very big minus is that they almost rebuilt everything, keeping almost nothing intact. It should like how it was but as such you can built it on another place so the charm is a bit gone. Also very expensive to visit.

This is one of the best museums I've ever been to. It's huge so plan to spend at least 2-3 hours here. It's a great way to stay out of heat during the hot sunny day. Check out their terrace and beautiful garden. Make sure to pay for the audio guide (4 Euros), it's definitely necessary in order to be... More

Just went to Toledo, planning to visit the Alcazar as our last stop from 5PM until TripAdvisor's listed closing time of 7PM. The hours listed on this site are wrong; the military museum at the Alcazar actually closes at 5PM.

The permanent exhibition splits over four large floors and covers pretty much everything the army has touched in the last five centuries. Given the importance of the army in Spain over the years, this means that you get a view of 500 years of Spanish history. We made the mistake of thinking we could "pop in" and spend an hour... More

A massive complex that now houses a military museum with an impressive firearm display - the musket and cannon display are particularly extensive. The building itself is impressive - but it is no showy: clean lines, no extensive adornments or decorations, etc... If you are a structural engineer or an architect, you'll appreciate being able to see and walk around... More

For our visit of the city of Toledo, we made the choice to park our car into the underground parking place who is located on the on the end of the “Cuesta de los Cappuccinos”, and doing so we were at a few steps of the first place to see in Toledo: The “Alcazar – Museo Del Ejército.
