Check out Madrid's Museum of Romanticism
One travel writer did just that and, from what I can gather, had a whale of a time. The Independent's Anne Marie Scanlon - who recommended that travellers avoid using the subway because Madrid is a city that's best experienced above ground and on foot - recently spent a bit of time at this exhibition hall, with some of the displays even prompting an "involuntary gasp of pure delight" from her lips.
She was astounded by a big doll's house which - something that will enchant younger jet-setters no doubt - comes complete with little mechanised inhabitants, either eating a meal, cooking or having a bit of a dance.
"I watched several people (the place is extremely popular, with queues outside even on a wet Wednesday morning) utterly transfixed by the same scenes," Ms Scanlon continued.
Can't say it would float my boat particularly but I can definitely see the appeal. If you do make it over there, make sure you head back here and leave me a little blog comment detailing your experiences. I'd love to hear them.
You'll also be able to find lots of antique furniture, paintings and examples of the decorative arts, with works by Madrazo, Alenza and Goya available for viewing. I guarantee you'll have a good time.
