The Museo del Romanticismo is a building from the past that is filled with beautiful furniture and beautiful paintings and sculptures. One feels very comfortable in this museum because it is a house that does not overpower you. There are many portraits here done in the 19th century. There are paintings by Goya, Vicente Lopez, Federico de Madrazo, Carlos Luis... More

This Museum was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Madrid. It is located in the Chueca district and is easily accessible by metro. After the marathon which is the Prado and the Reina Sofia this Museum is more akin to the 100 metre race. The museum is housed on two floors ,the ground floor is taken up... More

It is a nice place to visit, for me as a student the entrance was free. It is a single floor exhibition in a small house. It has an interesting way of presentation of the social, intellectual, political way of life in the society. The annoying thing was the font of the textual description was very small and some times... More

This was a real gem of a find in Madrid, a city I know fairly well and yet when a friend took me here I was blown away. We went on a Saturday afternoon when it was free to enter and the museum is in an old and well preserved house. The rooms are stunning and the Romantic art collection... More

Museo del Romanticismo is a hidden gem. Sunday's are free entry to this beautiful place else there is a charge. Usually people are not aware of this place and can be missed by many tourists. This place just 'happened' to us by virtue of our stay which was right opposite to it. You must go there for breakfast and look... More

Our friends recommended we go here. We were very impressed with the art, furnishings and friendly staff. The cafe offered carrot cake, red velvet cake and a variety of tempting treats. Ooops! Back on task! If you like the Sorolla Museum, you'll love this place.

The art is so repetitive I was yawning through most of it. I understand that the museum has a theme but it was a waste of money. The staff were helpful though.

An amazing museum with intricately recreated rooms, housed in a fantastic old mansion in the middle of Madrid. Worth visiting as its not one of the main attractions, but surprises you with a quaint charm of its own. And it was free when we went - even better!
