I'd been before and enjoyed the charm of this little jewel of Spanish history so I took my daughter for a walk here. Unfortunately the lady that attended the door insisted we needed to get a 'free' ticket from the Palace, an hours walk away !! ( many museums are free on Wednesday) If the entrance is free wouldn't it... More

This is a really small museum with 5 luxury row boats belonging to the kings and queens of Spain during the last 2 centuries. The boats are very nice, but there is nothing else of interest in the museum... or so it seems, as there are no explanations in any of the pictures, reproductions and cases of artifacts along the...

We went to see the Palace and what they didn't tell us was that it was a combined ticket for the Royal Barges Museum. We found this out when we read the brochure for the "tourist train"! We went back to the Palace and explained what happened and they gave us a free ticket. It is quite a long but... More

Used the palace entrance ticket which also covers entry to the barge museum. It is only a small exhibition, but that does not detract from the marvelous display of barges, pictures and other items of the era. The exhibits were well-preserved and it was easy to get near to them for a close up view. A very enjoyable visit.

This is a small museum .Amazing to see the well preseved bargesfrom mainly 19th century. One or two were a bit over the top and another did seem a bit small! Well worth a visit

Stopped off on the small tourist train and visited in 45 mins. Nice stop off. The barges are well worth seeing. A good variety of barges (6) to see close up in all their glory. Situated in the park which is also well worth a long stroll in the fall. Will be back for that.

The mueseum was in Garden of Prince. From the palace, it took for 15 min on foot. The museum was very small along a small path, but the gold barges were so great. I could enter the museum by showing the ticket for the palace. I saw peacocks nearby.
