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!

I remember going to this museum when I was a child and being surprised by so many things to see and learn. After visiting other similar museums in the world I realized that ours was a very old and naive museum. After so many years...More

Mucho animal disecado, poco organizado y visita poco interactiva. No merece mucho la pena a no ser que vayas con niños. Para ellos puede ser interesante y divertido, sobre todo la parte de dinosaurios. A lot of stuffed animal, little organization of stuff and little...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

This is a museum which is in two halves, so make sure that you go into BOTH areas (entrances about 200m apart). From fossils/prehistoric animals through to sharks/whales and birds, all very well displayed/laid out. The details are listed in Spanish, with about 10% having...More

Quite small compared to other museums, but the exhibition on biodiversity was right up to date and clearly explained in Spanish and English, covering evolution, climate change and biodiversity. Lots of diagrams and skeletons to illustrate the explanations

If you have been to the London National History Museum don't even bother. The museum is small, unfriendly and they clearly do not want children around. It is not worthy of a capital city. Save yourself the money.
