Archaeological Museum

I do love a good museum, so on our recent trip to Madrid (click here) we went to the Archaeological Museum. I’d visited before but that was along time ago and they’d refurbished it since. I was excited to see how it’d changed.

It’s well worth the visit. The refurb is very beautiful (though I wasn’t so keen on the stairs).

Here are few pic of my favourite things we saw.
