There is no denying that bullfighting has been an important part of Spanish culture. This museum showcases the history and artifacts connected with the toreadors, and works of art inspired by the bullfighting. Among these there is a good number of drawings by Goya and Picasso.

Culturally, this museum is a treasure trove. There are wonderful bronze sculptures by Nacho Martin and an array of 'abanicos' , finely adorned fans with classic bullfighting scenes . The stunning toreador costumes include one by Picasso and one by Armani. The stand out pieces for me -the collection of Goya prints grouped beside the Picasso and Carnicero collections thus allowing you to see how artists from different centuries have interpreted the tauromaquia. And finally the portrait by Aurelio Rodriguez Lopez (2014)'Triunfo de El Juli' which depicts not the pain of the toreador but the victory.

This isn't the easiest building to find. It's in a square near the Cathedral but I didn't see any signs to it and the building itself is a white inconspicuous building with little external signage. I was so glad I persevered in my search for it. It houses a wonderful collection of items, especially paintings, sculptures, very old posters, hand-written authorisations signed by Kings and Queens for bullfights in Madrid's Plaza Mayor, fabulous trajes de luces of toreros past and present - including a gorgeous silver one of Cayetano's by Armani - and what caught my eye the most was a case with engraved espadas used in Alternativas of famous toreros. One illustration of particular interest is from the 1500's and shows what is thought to be the first recorded purpose-built bullring. And it's not in Spain. It's on the banks of the Thames in London. That did surprise me. It's all very well set out over 3 floors. From the report on its opening repeated earlier this month on Tendido Cero, the collection comprises some 3000 items, and the things on display will be rotated so new things can be seen regularly. I can't wait to go back. The best 6 Euros I've spent in a long time.

There's lots of interesting things here but it didn't feel finished. We were the only people there and a member of staff followed us from floor to floor I assume to check we didn't touch anything. She didn't even bother engaging with us and spent most of the time looking at her phone. There are a few areas translated into English but there's no guide, accompanying info or even instructions on how to go round the museum. It's 6 euros per person which is more than 4 times the price of the museum at Malaga bullring which is much better in my opinion. Maybe once the ground floor shop is open they'll put more effort in.
