Located between the Retiro and Atocha station, the National Anthropology Museum exhibits objects made by peoples of Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania, as well as items from its biological anthropology collection. Since its renovation in 2004 and 2005, the visit is organized thematically in areas that include clothing and adornments, music and leisure, beliefs, housing and household furnishings from five continents. Among the highlights of the collection are a six-meter long Philippine, shrunken human heads from Ecuador and the skeleton of Don Agustin Luengo Capilla, the 2.25-metre tall Extremaduran giant.
