Four floors of stuff purporting to represent how people have lived in the area. Some relevant, but much baffling.

This small, well organised Museum, offers a panoramic view of the culture and customs of Castile, one of the most important regions in Spain, origin of the Spanish language spoken by 500 million people. For those of us with Castilian family roots is a delight, from the traditional methods of construction, to means of transport, jewellery and agricultural implements, it offers a delicate, well documented and brief impression of the culture, the traditions and the ethnography of central Spain.

We stumbled on this very nice museum near the Holy Week Procession museum. It seems largely targeted to school-age visitors, but was interesting. Only comment is that the labels/info for many exhibits is at floor level - probably OK if you are a student, but if you need glasses and are tall, you'll do lots of stooping to learn about what you're looking at.

There's more to this museum than meets the eye because it's laid out over several stories. The exhibits were ordered and organized in such a way as to tell the ethnographic story of the region. We enjoyed almost exclusive access to the guides, who were very patient and happy to converse though our Spanish was still nascent. The store had traditional music of Castilla and some interesting historical recordings of mechanical instruments and otherwise.

So, very big building and free in the late afternoon/early evening so that was a bonus. It's new and sparkling and so why is everything in just Spanish, not even an audio guide? We both speak and read French and Italian and some German so we're not demanding everything should be in English everywhere we go but having just been to Portugal where almost everything was in at least two languages it was disappointing to return to the completely Spanish explanations for exhibits which meant we couldn't really get much depth out of the visit. Apart from that the exhibits while probably interesting felt a bit sparse and we were disappointed having visited other similar museums with more to offer.
