The Royal Armoury of Madrid is based at the Royal Palace and is included in the ticket price. There is a wide array of armoury however nearly all the signs are only in Spanish. If this was a separate attraction I would say it probably...More

Extensive display of arms and particularly armor. Armor of the Royals, their knights, their horses, children for appearances rather than fighting, and even the hunting dogs. Extensive narration through the audio guide. I entered through the Palace courtyard but apparently there's an outside entrance as...More

Even my spouse who is not into these type of items was duly impressed and captivated by all the Armour and equipment and weapons. It is impressive and very well displayed and worth the extra price of admission. Don't go to the Royal Palace and...More

I found it to be fascinating. This was the armor worn by kings. It gave you an excellent idea of their size and shape. I was especially interested in the amor of the little princes. Both creepy and cool to imagine these little guys all...More

The Armoury is adjacent to the Royal Palace and is easy to get to. There are numerous models of cavalry men on horses from differing dates and the armoury is well-laid out. Everything is well-presented and provides a fascinating insight into Spain's past.

Definitely visit the Armoury if you are visiting the Royal Palace. It's two floors of armour, but it gives you the history of armour and its importance. Our teen aged kids found it fascinating. It's also on the audioguide for the palace which I would...More
