Madrid

Museo del Traje

2 Av. De Juan De Herrera
Madrid, 28040, Spain
TEL: 34-91-550-4700

Displayed in architect Jaime López de Asiaín's award-winning building on the Complutense University of Madrid campus, the Museo del Traje collection includes garments and clothing from the 16th century on. In 2004, the museum separated from the Museo Antropológico to set-up in its current space—a clean-lined, concrete and glass former contemporary art museum surrounded by gardens. Dim lighting protects the fragile fabrics, and permanent exhibits range from bullfighter suits to the white Travilla dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in The Seven Year Itch. There’s a mock fashion runway with paparazzi-style flashes, lace-up corsets for vistors to try on, and a restaurant serving Basque cuisine.

Insider Tip:

The museum is an eight-minute walk from the pre-Colombian artifacts at the Museo de América.
