Museum of the Americas (Museo de America), Madrid, Spain
Avenida de los Reyes Catolicos, 6, Madrid, Spain| Map |
Museum of the Americas (Museo de America) is Madrid’s tribute to “the new world,'' displaying all manner of fascinating artifacts of Indian peoples from ancient times to modern day. The two floors of the museum are divided according to function: communications, warfare, religion, etc. and contain some truly fascinating objects. A Peruvian mummy is on display along with conquistador armor, Indian clothing and ceremonial vessels, and even a rare Mayan codex. Bear in mind that all the exhibits are in Spanish, so appreciation of the museum may be somewhat limited. There is a café at the museum (closed on Sundays), and admission fees are some of the cheapest found in Madrid. The Museum of the Americas makes for a pleasant afternoon visit for parents and kids of all ages.
