Nave de Motores de Metro, get to know the history of the Madrid subway system

The Community of Madrid has just reopened to the public, after making some improvements in accessibility, the cultural space Nave de Motores de Metro. This space, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, was built at the beginning of the 1920s to improve the service offered by the Metro network.

In Nave de Motores you can visit, among other pieces, three huge diesel engines and the rest of the machinery (alternators, transformers, etc.) that once served to generate and transform the energy with which the trains ran.

After the works carried out, the building has returned to its original appearance and exhibition and museum elements have been added to make the visitor's experience more complete.

It is part of the Metro's network of museums, including the Gran Vía station, the old Chamberí station, the old Pacífico hall, the Ópera station and the archaeological complex exhibited at the Carpetana station.
