“A definite "underground" attraction worth the stop”

Station 0 or the old Chambari station is an interesting stop in the Northern part of the city. Granted my wife and I are fans of metros and their history, but I think anyone who is interested in history and architecture, will want to stop here. The only other English review complained that it is a little hard to find. Well it is an abandoned subway station that was sealed off in the 60's so of course it is not as obvious as a functioning station. I took a picture of the glass and metal entrance that was created to have access, so that way anyone looking should know what they are looking for. First of all the entrance fee is free and includes a pretty cool 20 minute video (in Spanish of course) that discusses the history of the Madrid metro. Since it is the second largest after London, I found it pretty fascinating how it has grown over the years. This station has been restored to reflect how a station may appear in the 1920's, complete with all the fixtures and advertisements from that era. It is a fun escape that sends you back in time for a little while and is a great detour when you find yourself in the neighborhood.

Anden 0 is the museum of Madrid's metro system. It really consists of two museums, the old metro station at Chamberí and La Nave de Motores (Warehouse of Motors) on calle Valderribas. I have only been to the station at Chamberí. The first part of the museum is a 20-minute video outlining the history of the metro. The video is interesting and informative. The second part is the old station, which had to be discontinued from use because the trains got longer and the station platform could not be extended. It has been restored to look like it did in the early 20th century. Overall, the museum is worth a visit for anyone with any interest in the metro. It is free and doesn't require more than 30 minutes. I found the museum a little hard to find. It is in the plaza de chamberí and is accessed through a glass structure that houses an elevator and the stairs that lead down to the museum.
