Located by a pond in the middle of the Retiro Park in central Madrid, this building is an absolute gem and is well worthy of a little visit. You can go inside but it does not bring much. The best place to take it all...More
Located in the large and beautiful Retiro park. The building is mostly glass windows with white frames and there is ceramic tiling on outside of ducks and flowers. Inside there wasn’t much but it’s free to enter. There were a few sculptures all white, of...More
A walk around retiro park is an antidote to the bustle and noise of Madrid. The crystal palace emerged out of the trees and is an enchanting building - very photogenic! They have temporary at exhibitions in there, but the building and it's gorgeous seeing...More

Free to get in and during the summer the Reina Sofia museum typically does free temporary art exhibits inside. To find the bathroom, go inside the building, walk all the way to the back - there are two staircases to go down.

Retiro Park and The Crystal Palace are free entrance. Inside the palace is nothing but a very modern exhibition. When I took a long walk through the park, I just wanted to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful colours of the season ( after spending all morning visiting one of the museums). Hope this helps.
