Naval Museum reflects the fact that, although Madrid itself is land-locked, Spain’s rulers have profited from the country’s extensive coasts for centuries. The history displayed here begins with the Catholic Monarchs, Isabella I and Ferdinand II, who authorized Christopher Columbus’ expedition. On view are the earliest still-existing map of the Americas and scale models of ships, among many other items of interest. Entrance is inexpensive, but you must bring a photo ID to be allowed in. With our world travel planner, Madrid attractions like Naval Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
