This house museum is packed with interesting period furniture and pieces of the time. It was free the day we went and it did not disappoint. Double check the hours though, since it has limited hours. A definite pleasant surprise for a small museum.

I love this museum and am so glad I found the recommendations on TripAdvisor as it is a bit out of the way, away from all the main art museums in Madrid. It is a beautifully preserved family home from the Romantic period with original features and extra appropriate furnishings borrowed from the Prado Museum, etc. I would have happily... More

Found this amongst some Trip Advisor guides and it was not a disappointment. It can take a while to get in as they operate a policy of only letting a few in at a time. So when a few come out they let a few in. It was free on the day we went(Sunday) but 3 euros at other times.... More

It was a great experience for me. To understand the romanticism period you should visit this museum. Everything in the museum is well decorated and it is hard to not like it.

A small museum but it is a gem . Do not miss this if you are in Madrid. Not easy to locate at first but well worth searching for the entrance.

The Museo del Romanticismo had a very good exhibition of fashion used during the 19th century in Spain. The dresses were scaterred around the museum and one could compare the costumes in the paintings with the costumes on display.

We visited this on Sunday 4 December. We got in for free for a reason that is unclear to me. Even if we had to pay it was worth the 3 euros many times over. Beautiful museum dedicated to the romantic period. Rooms are absolutely fabulous. We had far too little time. An hour was not even enough for a... More

I've been to Madrid a few times but for some reason hadn't made it to the Museo del Romanticismo until my last visit. It's a fascinating place to spend an hour or two, the rooms are all full of fabulous period furniture, paintings, jewellery, toys and other interesting bits to have a look at. I really liked the way the... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
