Due to renovation work, Madrid's municipal history museum is currently only displaying its most famous piece, León Gil de Palacio's scale model of Madrid from 1830, as part of the exhibition 'Topographias' y narrativas urbanas, on the basement floor. The rest of the museum is closed to the public. The building itself boasts an exuberantly ornate entrance by Pedro de Ribera, one of the finest examples of baroque architecture in Madrid, and worth seeing in itself.
