When we visited, the three exhibitions were worth seeing, but as these will change as time passed, your experience may be different.

Small exhibit in a huge building. Cost is free, but hours are limited. I was pleasantly surprised by the eclectic selection of artwork. The exhibit is on two floors, so don't forget to see both floors. The gallery had some beautiful prints from artists I...More

Aviation in 1910 and photo portrets with intervals of 25 to 40 years. Not sinething to make a detour for. The building, a former army storage, is probably the best part.

Museum of Contemporary Art Conde Duque is set in the formidable ex-barracks of the Palace guard. Plans to demolish the splendid building were canceled and it has become an excellent venue for exhibitions especially of contemporary art. A library is in the right corner as...More

The Conde Duque is a bit out of the way but is an interesting historic building which houses excellent temporary exhibitions. The photographic exhibition called At the Gates of Paradise about migrants which is on now was extremely thought provoking.

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music
venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair,
narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends
outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents,

the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as
many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
