The National Museum of Decorative Arts is worth visiting, although it is not well known. Many times they will have an interesting exhibition. The permanent collection has a very interesting kitchen from Valencia that is outstanding with its decorative tiles.

The exhibition at the Museo de Artes Decorativas was La Ruta de la Seda, Antiguos Tejidos Chinos. It explained how China developed their silk industry 5000 years ago and how later the silk followed the silk route and ended up in Europe. There were many exhibits of silk from the 19th century. Older silk exhibits were a bit faded, but quite interesting. These included silk from the Han Dynasty starting in the First Century AD to silk in the 19th century. The exhibition was very interesting and they had a good little booklet explaining everything.

Everything was in Spanish, there was not much to see and the way that the permanent collection was organised seemed like it was just a collection of left-over pieces from other collections. At three euro, this museum is over-priced. I've seen far better amateur museums. The visiting collection was nice and better done, but if you did not know either German or Spanish, you would not get much out of it.

We went to the museum today only to find that the third and fourth floor are closed for July and August. We enjoyed the second floor and it looks like a very nice museum, but not now.

This decorative arts museum is probably the best in Spain. One can understand how the Spanish lived in the past by looking at all the exhibits. Very few people know or visit this museum, but it is a real hidden gem. I enjoyed it immensely.
