Based on recommendations by this group, I went to the Naval Museum in
Madrid 2 weeks ago. Probably the best 3 Euros I spent on the entire trip.
No line! The line at Prado was one hour or more ( but my wife found a way
to buy a “cut the line “ ticket also for 3 Euros ,another good deal).
The Naval Museum is absolutely terrific with many great models, maps,
instruments. historical items, etc. I was still suffering time zone
whiplash and almost missed 1/4 of it including a new exhibit on the modern
Spanish Navy. The Museum is all on one floor with some dead end sections where
you must go back for an adjacent loop/corridor. As has been said here,
very worthwhile for 2-3 hours or more ; especially if you are can read Spanish.
The Museum in Barcelona is being redone and has some temporary exhibits.
Did not go there.
