Institute of History and Military Culture&El Goloso museum, Madrid

by Drugness

Hello all
Is it possible for the public to visit the above institute? Or maybe the El Goloso Museum of Armored Vehicles in El Goloso in Madrid? It seems both places have some good outdoor displays, judging from what i've seen on the internet, no doubt some good indoor ones exist too.
If anyone know the addresses for these places and how to get there by public transport too i would be very grateful!
Thanks again!
DG

Open www.wikimapia.org and cut & paste = Base Militar 'El Goloso' = and this will show the location. Or same thing directly in Google Maps:

For other information look at Spain's Ministry of Defense web: http://www.ejercito.mde.es/ingles/inicio.htm
and click on appropriate links.

Thanks for your help Pedmar.
When you say they will be moved to near the Museum of the Air, do you mean there will be housed indoors near there or put in the park? Any ideas? Sorry i don't understand Spanish so i can't follow the website although it looks good.
I've found both locations for the Institute on Google Earth so they seem reasonably easy to get to.
Do you think i would definitely need a car to get to the museum in El Goloso? I won't have one so i might have to scrap that idea if there's no public transport.

Thanks again!

By the way Pedmar just one more question
Regarding your directions to the base at El Goloso, are your directions going from when you are driving out of Madrid or driving towards Madrid?
Many thanks
DG

by Drugness

Sorry again pedmar, but regarding the Institute of History and Military Culture. Can you check the website for me and tell me if they are only open from 9am-1pm like the others and if they are closed on weekends?
Many thanks mate!

Hi
Sorry to be annoying with you again about this but i just had one more question for you about when you visited El Goloso.
When you visited with your children a few years back, can you recall if you were restricted from taking photographs or if you were escorted by any soldier around the grounds?
I'm in email discussions at the moment about visiting. The lack of Spanish is a drawback but i'm making progress
Thanks!

Travel Tips for Madrid

Puerta de Alcala (Alcala's Gate)

by SirRichard

One of the most representative monuments of Madrid. This arch was long ago one of the main entrance gates of Madrid. Now is a symbol of the town. It was built by Francisco Sabatini in 1778. The sculptures were designed by Francisco Gutierres and Roberto Michel by order of Carlos III of Spain. Plaza de la Independencia. Metro: Retiro.

Siesta time

by vanessadb

Spain is known for its siesta (nap) and for its quailty of life: Work to live instead of live to work. And taking a nap in the middle of the day is indeed a wonderful invention. What you have to understand though is that Madrid (and most of Spain for that matter) shuts down from about 2 pm until 6pm in the evening.

The regular business hours are indeed from 9h or 10h in the morning till 13h30 or 14h, and from 17h or 18h till 20h or 21h. The 3 hour break is the lunch and siesta time.

So from 2pm to 6pm approximately, you won't find an open store, except for convenience stores like El Corte Ingles. Other exceptions are construction workers, particularly road workers, who are out all day;.and tourist-oriented places, such as museums, have reduced siesta hours, closing at two and re-opening at four.

So keep this in mind when scheduling your days, especially if you have a limited amount of them....

Just... Madrid....

by Gaby_G

I think that walking "of the beaten path" trough Madrid it´s a must see activity... The truth is that almost all the tourist activities are so near that you can afford getting lost and have a great experience finding your way out to your next activity... Just try not to look very "touristic" and take care of your stuff... But really... trust me... walk and watch... There is something great in every corner.

Catalan design in Madrid

by agarcia about Vincon

The originality of this shop is absolutely remarkable. It is a great exponent of the colorful Catalan style of design, something in which Barcelona clearly advantages Madrid... by far. (snif, snif) Though it is possible to find here furnishing and ornaments for the office or the kitchen, I mainly use this shop whenever I'm in the need of buying some presents. They have some really clever and original ideas here. Just don't take a fancy to the items of this shop. The outrageously high prices could be a severe punishment for your wallet ;-)

bars from the 80s

by mindcrime about EL PENTA - VIA LACTEA

There are some bars/pubs in the old part of the city that date back from the 80s when the cultural revolution started after Franco’s death, known as movida madrilina and it had to do with a creativity not only in nightlife but also in theater/movies/fashion. I visited a lot of them, usually the people are standing, chatiing or dancing with their drinks. The music playlist are hits from now and then.

2 of them are in Tribunal district:
EL PENTA(pic 1) (c/ Palma, 4 tel:0034/914478460) was so crowded that I could hardly move but the people seemed to be in good mood.

VIA LACTEA(pic 2) (c/ Velarde, 18 tel:0034/914467591) was also good, with good drinks and relaxed people too. I don’t think I saw any tourist inside.
