Madrid is the perfect place to learn something about not only the city itself, but rest of Spain and its history abroad. Keeping the information local is the Museo Municipal de Madrid. To find out about Spain in general, head to the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and to find out about Spain’s conquest of the Americas, visit Museo de America.

Spain is also home to some of the best galleries in the world for contemporary and classical art at the Reina Sofia and Prado museums respectively.
