All reviews retiro park crystal palace glass building beautiful building beautiful glass flora and fauna black swans small lake art exhibits fairy tale sunny day worth a visit reina sofia free entry structure greenhouse ducks
Quite a strange attraction. Very impressive from the outside and it’s in a great area of the park, with a picturesque fountain, pond and even wee turtles! Then you get inside the palace and there’s little to see. Hmmmm.
We couldn't get inside but it didn't matter because the exterior and setting are really what this place is about. An attractive glass building that i imagine would be an excellent place to hold exhibitions
what is nice about this site is that to come on and view the palace it is free. We arrived on an overcast morning before we headed over to the Reina Sofia Museum. It was not crowded but inside was very warm (the palace was...More
This was our second visit to the Palacio and interestingly the requirement for shoe covers has been removed (as per our visit in November). The building is probably not used correctly in its current guise as a place for exhibitions because as an orangery it...More

Free to get in and during the summer the Reina Sofia museum typically does free temporary art exhibits inside. To find the bathroom, go inside the building, walk all the way to the back - there are two staircases to go down.

Retiro Park and The Crystal Palace are free entrance. Inside the palace is nothing but a very modern exhibition. When I took a long walk through the park, I just wanted to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful colours of the season ( after spending all morning visiting one of the museums). Hope this helps.
