The National Museum of Natural Sciencies: a unique place in Madrid. From December 2010 new exhibits of Geology, Zoology, Paleontology and Human Evolution are on display. It is worth a visit!

Very easy to access and accessible to the rest of Madrid central attractions. Compared to the rest of Madrid's attractions it sits quite adequate. But, on a world scale of renowned science museums it is very poor. The most interesting is probably the fossil, minerals,...More

This is a decent museum to check out if you need to kill an hour or two, but don't expect a grandiose museum to spend hours exploring. There are some interesting collections, but for the price and for the small amount of time it takes...More
