I grew up hearing about Antonio Machado as my father loves him, so it was special for me to visit this place and learn more about his life, and show my partner who is from Wales as well.
It is almost like Antonio still lives there, his soul is definitely there. We feel the family's story is close to the visitor as we walk around the house. I loved having the audio guide and have extracts of his texts read to me.
Very moving visit.."caminante no hay camino..."
Also I had a long chat with the curator who also loves languages, stayed some time learning English in Ireland, and also learning Japanese...amazing to find someone with the same passion I have :) Would definitely love to come back with my father.

Now we loved this, but I guess many of you wouldn't bother to go, because you have no idea who Antonio Machado was, and why they should make a museum out of the boarding house where he lived for a decade.

Even if you have no idea, it's worth visiting.

Well, he was one of the most famous of Spanish poets, a poet and a teacher of French, who had a sad life (his young wife Leonor whom he had married when she was just 15 or 16, died of TB aged 18), and was later forced to flee to France during the Spanish Civil War, going to join his elderly mother who was living in the enchantingly pretty town of Collioure, just over the border. But within a month he died, and his mother died just 3 days later.

But the house has been restored, furnishing, decorations, kitchen and all, to the condition in which it was when he lived there in the 20's, and that alone is a good curiosity that warrants the €2.50 entrance fee.

We used the audioguide, but in Spanish as we are Spanish speakers, sorry, I don't know if there is an English one available, and it gave really fascinating information, so we spent nearly two hours in that tiny house, examining carefully just about everything there!

With audio tours in English and a low entrance price, the Museum of Machado introduces you to one of Spains most important poets. Housed in what was once his former boarding house, the museum captures what it was like to live in Segovia in the early part of the 20th century. A very complete history of Machado, Segovia and an awesome effort to educate the rural populace through a traveling school, this is defnitely worth a visit. And, I saw a number of children really fascinated by the story of Machado, so families are welcome.

An interesting house where this poet lived while In Segovia. He was clearly much admired and this comes across well as you walk through this house. Great to see how people lived at this time and to explore one of the houses. An audio guide is part of the entrance fee

While many palaces are places where people lived, they rarely give the feeling of intruding on the intimacy of its inhabitants that a regular house does. It is moving to walk around in the sober house where the poet and writer Machado lived, and see the objects by which he was surrounded.

I enjoyed this but I like house tours - if you don't you may wonder what you are doing there!
I was not familiar with this man's work but it was really good to see how life was in those days. Furniture is almost all original as is the kitchen and bathroom - so very interesting.
Audio was sometimes spotty - same story on different numbers.

I had studied Machado's poetry, so this was a meaningful visit, and took me back to my student days. If you haven't heard of him, I don't think the house would be of any interest. I did the forty minutes with an audio guide in English, and thought it a great insight into his life and times. Only €2.50 too.

This museum is touching because of all the photos of the poet Antonio Machado, his family, and friends, as well as the rooms he lived in, including kitchen and bedroom. There are also some letters and writings of Machado. Ther museum is also quite touching because it conveys how Machado lived. I think the museum is well worth seeing.

The entrance to this house-museum is not very obvious other than a sign. Entrance ticket is 2.50 euro with audio headset. Flash photography allowed but not video. This house-museum is well preserved in its original state, hence simple and unassuming. The audio guide is useful to give a glimpse of the life of Antonio Machado. One can view the many rooms with its exhibits - furniture, bed, desk, household stuff, photos, articles etc.

There were only a few visitors when I was there. A good thing as the rooms are small. Worth a visit if time permits.
