Ideas for kiddies
Circo Price– Circus, no animals
National Museum of Natural Sciences [2 José Gutiérrez Abascal; 34/91-561-8600;  is old and dusty and has a ‘once upon a time’ feel. Beyond the dinosaurs, there’s a collection of taxidermy and an 18th-century cabinet of curiosities.
Wax Museum -41 Paseo de Recoletos; 34/91-319-2649
SHOPPING:
Vinçon (18 Castelló; 34/91-578-0520) – design store that sells all kinds of things, including toys—like the Museum of Modern Art Store, only looser and more exciting
Tiger– discount Ikea type shop, good for kids stuff
Pastelería Embassy (12 Paseo de la Castellana; 34/91-576-4877), classic spot where chic people go for a merienda & horchata—a milky drink made from tigernuts that dates back to ancient times.
Caramelos Paco (55 Toledo, 34/91-365-4258) has floor-to-ceiling lollies, suckers, and caramels. And when your cheeks are stuffed, check out Fiestas Paco (52 Toledo, 34/91-365-2760), a carnival shop across the street, that sells noisemakers, costumes, and fright wigs
SITE INSPECTIONS FOR WORK
La Capilla de la Bolsa – Ópera y Zarzuela en directo todos los martes y jueves, y los demás días de la semana piano y violín siempre a las 21:30 hs.
