Went here with some friends on their 2nd visit to Madrid. If you are in Madrid for more than a couple of days I highly recommend this museum. The main exhibition is very well laid out showing the evolution of fashion in Spain. Make sure you don't miss the interactive sections which are through the blue doors. There are clothes... More

We visited this in September and used our Madrid card. The main exhibition was closed. They're fixing the air conditioning and it looks like a long job with no end date known by staff. However the small exhibition on display in the gallery downstairs made it worth the visit. The costumes were immaculately preserved and beautifully presented with plenty of... More

This looks like a marvelous museum. Sadly, the air conditioning is being repaired and only one room was open when I visited on 15 August 2015. That room has a small temporary exhibit, and is being shown free. Check their website to see if the museum's permanent exhibition has re-opened. The few items on display are fascinating - how did...

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

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

Visited this museum on 29th December using a Madrid card, staff were welcoming and helpful. Exhibits were very good, including all the costumes to the Exodus film on display. All the displays had information in English which were all interesting to read. Not the easiest place to find after getting off the tube but we found this a lot in... 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
