We saw three collections. The display of the art work was in great taste. The curator did a superb job. Worth while to go. A bit off the major sites but worth while. Free entrance

This is about a 10 mn walk from plaza de España and worth it The museum is free and has a good collection of Francisco Sancha (beginning of 20th century) sketches/ cartoons. The rest are temporary exhibitions
