We stumbled on this mall while overnighting in Madrid on the way to El Puerto. We needed electric converters and Spanish enabled chips for our phones. We were able to find both at reasonable prices at Vodaphone and a connecting supermarket. Parking was difficult, but...MoreThank you for your visit!

Museo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia MUNCYT

Reviewed By Wendy R - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This place is fantastic. I don't understand why it doesn't appear in Madrid guidebooks - a Spanish friend of ours with kids told us about this place. It is on the outskirts of Madrid - underground station nearby and free parking available.
Free to get in, and workshops and Planetarium only cost 3 euros (but obviously you don't have to do these). I would disagree with a previous review saying you need to speak Spanish to understand - signs available in English and Spanish and lots of the things ie hands on science for kids don't need a sign to explain it - you can easily explain the science behind it to your kids. My daughter was the only one at the science workshop so the explainer/ teacher did the session in English and she loved it (she's 5).
Bring a packed lunch as there's not much in the way of food nearby, that was obvious to me. It became really quiet in the afternoon after the school groups had gone - so would recommend going in the afternoon rather than the morning if you want a quiet time.
Highly recommended. Thank you.

Fun and learning for all the family - from 4 to 80. What's mo cheap to get into. A huge range of scientific exhibits, hand-on experiments and machinery that makes for several hours of guaranteed fun and discovery. Popular with local schools and for birthday parties too, for good reason. But due to close, or be reinvented, this winter; so go soon!

La atención fue buenisima, camareros simpáticos y atentos que no paran de trabajar! El sitio estaba hasta arriba, no me extraña porque el tapeo es abundante y las raciones están muy bien. Sencillo, rico y sin pretensiones. El sitio por fuera no invita a entrar, pero merece la pena.

Museo Bonsai Luis Vallejo

The Museum houses one of the best bonsai collections found outside of Japan due to their high quality and the diversity of specimens. The Museum has a shop, nursery, workshop and lecture room.

Reviewed By travelmar - Madrid, Spain

If you have an interest in bonsai or nature in general, I highly recommend you visit this place. The bonsai on display are some of Europe's best, with many imported from Japan, while also showcasing native species. The bonsai are very well maintained and the architecture of the garden is a mixture of modern and japanese styles. The museum is carefully tucked away within the Jardín de la Vega on Avenida Olímpica, beside a rectangular pond. The surrounding Gardens and Japanese pagoda close by, are also worth taking a look at.

Estuve por desgracia en el entierro del padre de un amigo. El lugar sobrio pero acogedor. Me sorprendió las bebidas que había para la gente que iba a dar el pésame.
La iglesia del tanatorio grande con calidez para el tipo de evento que se celebra.
No es plato de buen gusto ir allí, pero al menos, no es un sitio desagradable.

Para disfrutar con tus amigos, haga sol o llueva, haga frío o calor, las actividades se realizan bajo techo en una nave y con una medidas de seguridad muy profesionales. Muy divertido, muy cerca, detrás de La Cruz Blanca, y muy seguro, tanto para niños como para mayores.
