Museo del Traje (Costume Museum)
Museo del Traje (Costume Museum) Review
This museum traces the evolution of dress in Spain, from old royal burial garments (very few of which remain) through the introduction of French fashion by Felipe V to the 20th-century creations of couturiers such as Balenciaga and Pertegaz. The 18th century claims the largest number of pieces. Explanatory notes are in English, and the museum has a superb restaurant. To get here, from Moncloa take Bus 46 or walk along the northeastern edge of Parque del Oeste.
