    Museo del Ejercito-Army museum

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One finds the Museo del Ejército or Army museum between the Paseo del Prado and the Parque del Buen Retiro.
    27,000 items are on view among which a sword that allegedly belonged to the Spanish hero El Cid.
    The presentation is somewhat confusing because of the density of the exhibition. The museum tries to show everything in the old style of presentation.
    A most remarkable part of this military museum is the artillery department which I recommend to all amateurs of this arm.

    Voila un musée très dense, trop même, qui expose 27.000 pièces à la façon ancienne. Pour amateurs avertis jamais fatigués. Le département consacré à l'artillerie est remarquable. Je le conseille à tous ceux intéressés par l'histoire de cette arme.

    The Museo del Ejercito is now closed in order to prepare its transfer to the Alcazar of Toledo.
    The exhibition surface in Toledo will be twice that of Madrid.
