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

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

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.

Very interesting mainly for my wife- Lots of clothes from times past. I started to go to sleep, the air was too hot. I expect it was to keep the clothes in good condition. If you are intrested in period costumes this place has lots.

I went to this Museum on a cold damp day in February, 2013. It was a little difficult to find, I walked there from near Plaza Mayor - about an hour's walk. The museum is very very interesting. It covers the history of Spanish clothing/dress (including information on how some of the history of clothing in Spain has been 'reinterpreted'... More

When my wife and I go to Madrid we always go to the Costume Museum. It is out of the way and few people know it, but it certainly is worth knowing. First of all you can see all the history of costumes of Spain, with very good explanations. Many times they have special exhibitions of a particular Spanish designer.... More
