Wasn't really going in with much expectation but was absolutely fascinated by the wealth of historical artifacts this museum had to offer!! It just went on for ages!! (Maybe a little overwhelming!). Its a very informative and knowledgeable museum with tons of things to see....More

This is very interesting museum, one of a kind. First thing that surprised me was how quiet it was. In the whole museum that day, two of us were the only ones. It was great! The exhibition is very interesting, but it lacks more explanations...More

I think this is maybe a unique museum in Europe. Covering all aspects of life in the Americas (not USA only) before and after the discovery. Well organized. A bit out of city centre but worth the visit.More

A really interesting museum, but sadly, there was a lack of English signs for guests to read, meaning a lot of the information/interesting facts went undiscovered by us. The museum itself is cheap and well laid-out, though, and if you are interested in Latin American...More

Having returned to Moncloa bus station, decided to visit the museum as it's quite close. As its off the beaten track it was fairly quiet, which was good from our point of view as we had time to see everything without crowds. The artefacts brought...More

I was very happy to see the splendid artifacts from ancient Latin America: the ancient Paracas textile, the Mayan Codex, the painted screens, etc. Although I enjoyed and studied the cultural objects, I thought the curation of the exhibits sometimes suffered from an overbearing colonial...More

The museum is off the beaten track but worth a visit. Not crowded like Prado, you have time to see everything for yourself. Great exhibition of pre-Colombian art. Just great for connoiseurs of history.More

This beautiful, well presented yet under-visited museum is well worth a visit. Up on a hill away from downtown Madrid, and spread over two theme-based floors, the Museo de América holds some real gems for anyone interested in pre-Hispanic America. These include the Codex Madrid...More

This is a bit of a hike from the metro and takes a couple of transfers but worth it. The Spanish were the first outsiders to make contact with many cultures, and the artifacts on display are some of the best I've seen anywhere in...More

So cheap it's virtually free - in fact we were waved through for free. I don't know why.
