So, my niece picked this out as a sight to see on our recent visit to madrid. Ever serious about preservation of the cloths in their historical exhibits the museum is incredibly dark, including the displays. It was certainly interesting to see the fashions going back 500 years, including a decent array of men's fashion and fashions of different classes.... More

The museum is full of fashion and costumes dating back from the Middle Ages to now. A great deal of thought and organisation has gone into this museum, it is well laid out,... More

This small museum provides a lot of history of the beautiful pieces on display. Although it centers around female attire, there was an additional exhibit during my visit that focused entirely on male attire, albeit much smaller and less impressive than the overall museum exhibits. If the clothing wasn't enough, the overall landscape of the surrounding area that envelopes the... More

The Museum of Costume is a very unique museum in Madrid because one can see samples of costumes used in Spain in the past and one can see the evolution of dress during the history of Spain. There is always a special exhibition. The museum store is one of the best museums stores in Madrid because one can always find... More

The Costume Museum is quite enjoyable. The only inconvenience is that it is a bit far from downtown Madrid, so we always take a taxi to and from the museum. The museum shows the history of dress in Spain and they have very good preserved dresses and costumes over the ages. One always learns when one sees these old costumes.... More

I have been to a few costume museums around the world and this collection is a fine one. It has some fine pieces. The only thing is that it is quite dark so it can be a bit difficult to see some of the details. But all in all it is absolutely worth visiting.
