We enjoyed the fashion museum. The exhibits are excellent and very well laid out. It only costs 3Euros per person and is excellent value for the money. The restaurant is well worth visiting, we both enjoyed brunch before entering the museum, so do try for a coffee and cake, if short on time. The shop is also well worth visiting,... More

Having been to all the famous museums and galleries in Madrid on previous occasions, it was wonderful to find this costume museum. It's a little way out from the historic centre and involved taking the Metro and then walking some distance. The museum is well presented with plenty of information about the exhibits, in Spanish and in English. It gives... More

We spent an hour at this well laid out museum. It chronicles the history of Spanish fashion which was quite interesting. It is free for anyone over 65.

Went here with some friends on their 2nd visit to Madrid. If you are in Madrid for more than a couple of days I highly recommend this museum. The main exhibition is very well laid out showing the evolution of fashion in Spain. Make sure you don't miss the interactive sections which are through the blue doors. There are clothes... More

We visited this in September and used our Madrid card. The main exhibition was closed. They're fixing the air conditioning and it looks like a long job with no end date known by staff. However the small exhibition on display in the gallery downstairs made it worth the visit. The costumes were immaculately preserved and beautifully presented with plenty of... More

This looks like a marvelous museum. Sadly, the air conditioning is being repaired and only one room was open when I visited on 15 August 2015. That room has a small temporary exhibit, and is being shown free. Check their website to see if the museum's permanent exhibition has re-opened. The few items on display are fascinating - how did...

So, my niece picked this out as a sight to see on our recent visit to madrid. Ever serious about preservation of the cloths in their historical exhibits the museum is incredibly dark, including the displays. It was certainly interesting to see the fashions going back 500 years, including a decent array of men's fashion and fashions of different classes.... More
