Not only is the building and staircase remarkably beautiful, but the permanent and current photography and 3D exhibitions are absolutely fascinating. Very well designed, informative and interactive. Would definitely recommend!

A suprisingly interesting museum in a building that is worth a visit on its own due to its architecture! The museum is not limited to the history of telecommunications, but also moves into the areas of sound recording and sound in the movies. Make sure...More

Not much interesting building form outside but inside it's quite brilliant! Amazing stair, amazing exhibitions and everything is for free. The entrance is not from Gran Via but from the side street.

An elegant conversion of a historic building, the history and construction of which is well illustrated in the museum. A very well laid out and interpreted group of exhibitions, including arts subjects, which offer something of interest for the whole family. Cafe and toilets. And...More

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
