Let us make a suggestion of the museums that you must visit in Madrid, so that you can take advantage of your stay.
Museums to visit in Madrid
Madrid is a city full of art. There are several museums that house works of great historical relevance, which we leave in this list for you to consider visiting during your stay.
This museum was founded in 1867, with the purpose of preserving and exhibiting archaeological, ethnographic, numismatic and decorative arts materials that had been gathered over the years by the Spanish Crown, although the collection has increased over time. Highlights include the collections of Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt.
Museum of Romanticism.
It was inaugurated in 1924 with works that were owned by the Marquis de la Vega-Inclán, founder of the museum. The collection has expanded over the years, pursuing the clear objective of providing visitors with a broad and complete view of Romanticism in Spain. In this museum you will see paintings, drawings, miniatures, prints, furniture, photographs and decorative arts.
This museum is an ode to friendship and art. Eugenio Arias was a humble hairdresser. He and Pablo Picasso met during French exile. There began a friendship that would last 25 years. During this time, Eugenio shaved and cut his friend’s hair without any money in between because Picasso, by way of payment, gave him ceramic pieces, drawings or lithographs. In this way, he gathered a collection that, although the offers were not missing, never wanted to sell and, by 1985, inaugurated the Picasso Museum. Among the pieces stands out the eugenio barber toolbox that was decorated with bullfighting motifs by Picasso making use of the pyrograving technique, since both liked bullfighting.
Naval Museum of Madrid. This museum has a very interesting collection, ordered chronologically, which makes it easier to see the objects. This collection consists of maps, uniforms, weapons, flags, navigational instruments, among others. One of the pieces you will find in this museum is the map of Juan de la Cosa, considered as the first representation of the American continent.
House-Museum of Lope de Vega
. This house was bought by Lope de Vega in 1610 and still retains some of the furniture that was owned by the aforementioned writer, who inhabited that property for the last 25 years of his life. This house-museum seeks to transport visitors to the so-called “Golden Century of Spanish literature”, making use of the perspective of the nickname “Phoenix of the Ingenios”.
