We visited this on Sunday 4 December. We got in for free for a reason that is unclear to me. Even if we had to pay it was worth the 3 euros many times over. Beautiful museum dedicated to the romantic period. Rooms are absolutely fabulous. We had far too little time. An hour was not even enough for a... More

I've been to Madrid a few times but for some reason hadn't made it to the Museo del Romanticismo until my last visit. It's a fascinating place to spend an hour or two, the rooms are all full of fabulous period furniture, paintings, jewellery, toys and other interesting bits to have a look at. I really liked the way the... More

This is a delight to witness: a family home with a difference. To be bourgeois in Madrid in the 19th century must have been quite an experience. This museum is lovely and we are told so are its gardens, although on the day we visited, these were closed. Well worth the northerly wander from the main streets of Madrid. N

A great place to visit at the end of the day, it stays open until 10pm...A grand house of the Romantic period 18th/19th century, and furnished accordingly..some great art, incredible furnishings, and a real feel of the period. A very nice cafe and garden on the ground floor too...

Unless you have a particular interest in rather dreary royal portraits then I suggest giving this a miss. The sullen atmosphere in the place isn't helped by the security wardens. Wish we'd done something else.

An unexpected delight, aristo townhouse decorated in mid 19th century Spanish style with an abundance of Queen Isabel II memorabilia. Only 20 rooms or so, so takes just an hour or so. Worth the trip to a central neighbourhood with few other attractions.

Not a lot of tourists visit this underrated museum. Set in a former mansion or palace, it's collection of decorative arts, paintings and sculpture attempt to recreate the mood of 19 th century Romanticism. No problems battling crowds either.

I stumbled across this Museum by chance whilst out wandering and absolutely loved it. Every room was filled with interesting treasures and it is beautifully presented. Highly recommend

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
