There is a surprising section in this museum devoted to bringing the history of fashion to blind people. A special path with raised floor markings designate the positions of mannequins in muslin outfits that can be touched to explore the changes in style and decoration over the centuries. In addition to the muslin-clothed mannequins, there is a series of unclothed... More

Loved this museum! I'm living in Madrid and working as an English Assistant and my Spanish roommates and I wanted to do something no of us had done before and this fashion museum was suggested. Great collection with interesting information about the way fashion has changed over time here in Spain and it was all posted in Spanish and English!... More

Situated on the outskirts of Madrid within the university area which is a lovely parkland site. The museum is a modern building and there seemed to be two areas. Ground level had an exhibition of pop star's clothes whilst the upper level (much bigger) had a wide range of exhibits including some interesting videos of the history of costume. There... More

Tino Casal was an entertainer and singer in Madrid in the 1980's. He was famous for his very extravagant costumes. These costumes were exhibited in this museum and they were quite interesting. He also sculpted and his sculptures of Roman heads was quite good. The museum store was quite good and my wife bought several items there.

This museum has some incredible fashion pieces dating from the 1600s. It's only 3€ and an absolute must if you love fashion. Take the metro to Moncloa and it's a 15 minute walk from there. It takes between 1-2 hours to see the museum.

This museum is on the outskirts but we combined it with a visit to the Museum of the Americas which is just down the road. Obviously you will find the museum more worthwhile if you have an interest in costume. The exhibits are arranged chronologically with sections dedicated to shoes, bags, mantillas etc. Spanish designers, are highlighted, which we found... More

We made time to visit slightly out of the way museum, and it was a highlight of my trip. I do work in the costume business, but even those with a more casual interest in costume and clothing enjoyed this museum. The pieces in the collection are in amazing condition and displayed nicely. There is lots of information in English... More

First of all, I have to say that the Museo de Traje is a bit out of the way. I only considered it on my last day in Madrid when I had already been to my "must sees." Since it turned out to be a beautiful day, I decided to walk there from my central location. I was able to... More

Great museum very well presented that showcases the evolution of fashion in Spain from the 17th century to present day. Along with many incredible gowns and suits, you'll see lovely fans, shoes, gloves, hats, jewelry, and parasols. These aren't just clothes - they're works of art. Cafe, wheelchair accessible, lovely grounds, small gift shop. Well worth a visit!
