The area
Address
Neighborhood: Chamberí
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.

A good experience
Jan 2020 • Friends
Well we found a guided tour only in spanish language but we could understand the main ideas and the museum is interesting. But I was afraid it feels like robots are the arms of the future. Like black mirror could be today and not in the future

Talk about great ideas
Apr 2019
The place is high tech store for kids from 5 to around 65. All sorts of electronic gadgets, like spy robots, drones, and all sorts of toys. In the afternoon on thursday to saturday they hold an experience for kids where they spend an hour by themselves playing with robots whilst you can wait spending money upstairs or going to a nearby cafe. Either way once your kid comes up again you will be swiping your card an additional bit. Make sure your kid does the tour and the experience before buying anything.

Small museum and pick tour in English or Spanish
Jul 2018 • Family
I have mixed feelings about this place. The museum is small and not what I expected. The lady that did the tour in English was very nice and knowledgable. You can sign up for either a Spanish or English tour. There is a little movie and then the tour guide tells you about a variety of different robots that they have. My youngest child enjoyed learning and viewing the robots. My olders ones not so much. If we were visiting from out of country I would have been disappointed in planning time around this, but we live in the area. The price is cheap and hanging out in the toy store was definitely a fun time. I do like they limit how many people can check it out. It is easier to reserve a slot online and then pay at the store. You are asked to show up at the place about 20 minutes early to pay for tickets otherwise they can release them to others. It is easy to find and close to a metro station. This is something a little different and if you have kids interested in robots and need a change up from the "normal" tourist type of things to do then this maybe the break you need for the kids. *we have mixed ages of non teenagers and teenagers in our group. In the store portion of the place there were a lot of cool star wars and other things to look at before or after the tour. I feel bad marking this a 3 but I do feel it is average. I was not wowed but I am not a big robot fan. I do appreciate the time they have put into trying to make something here.

Great museum, now with English tours
Jul 2018 • Family
We were visiting Madrid with our son whose birthday fell during our visit. After realizing that another day of walking miles looking at historical buildings would be the worst birthday for him, we changed plans and went here. He speaks no Spanish but we brought a friend to translate the tour. It turned out to be unnecessary because they now do English tours. Not only did my son love the tour but we all loved the tour as did the other adults in our group. He got to play with some really cool robots. The store that is connected to the museum is really great too with toys for kids of all ages and also for those young at heart. The people working at this store obviously love their jobs and were so helpful. This would be a great rainy day activity. Between the store and the museum, we were there for almost 3 hours.

More than a “Museum”... it’s just an interesting Toys Store with a collection (and replicas) of robots
Feb 2018 • Family
It is a nice visit only if you can speak Spanish (unless you just want to see the Toys Store).
They have different times you can go to the “museum” ... we went at 1pm. Before the guided tour, there is a guy showing you around 5 robots (trying to sell them) and the show actually started at 1:10.
The museum is in the ground floor... the first floor is full of very interesting toys.

Not what I was expecting!
Mar 2015
If you've got an hour to kill, are fluent in Spanish and love robots then this is the place for you. For the 99.99% of the population that don't fit those criteria then it's probably best avoided.
For a start it's small, very small. Basically it's a room at the bottom of a much larger and very impressive robot superstore and in spite of the museum being titled in English the tour is conducted entirely in Spanish. Now I'm not one to moan about the native language being spoken instead of English but if they want to encourage tourists they should probably do it in both. The few signs accompanying the exhibits are also in Spanish so they won't help you either. On the plus side it's very close to the San Bernado Metro station so you won't have far to walk.
