Located high on the hill overlooking Toledo, this largely reconstructed building is still impressive. The museum itself is entered from one of the streets below and the exhibits are on the various levels of the Alcazar - accessed via steps, or elevator. The view from...More

Extensive building mostly destroyed in Spanish Civil War, now rebuilt but keeps an extensive Military museum. Wonderful collection of Toy Soldiers, and many, many interesting artefacts, well planned and structured. The command room for the Building's defence is kept, in ruins, to give an insight...More

This museum is so amazing and it should be one of your first stops in town. I love military history and this spot did not disappoint. A real interesting journey.

The old library in the Alcazar can only be visited upon appointment. The modern library has a cafetaria. From the windows there are some excellent views over the city of Toledo. Free entry just around the corner of the military museum.

when coming towards Toledo one can`t miss the impressive Alcazar building dominating the city skyline. I did not know what it was but curiosity draws me to it, so I had to see it closer.

Very good value for the 5 euros each I think we paid, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Really interesting place and we spent a good couple of hours to see everything.

Military museums are not generally my thing—they seem like museums dedicated to the craft of killing people, and getting more and more efficient at killing people through the centuries. But this one is a beautiful palace, with grand vistas looking out over Toledo, and gorgeous...More
