The Madrid Historical Society has three Museums, the Clay Castle Museum, Madrid Historical Museum and Madrid Mine #7. These Museums document the lively past of Madrid and story its development into the town it is now.
Clay Castle Museum - Clay Castle Museum houses one of the largest collections of dolls in the country. Many were made by Margaret Keigley, who donated her collection to the Madrid Historical Society. Included in the collection are doll houses, sewing machines and a variety of other toys.
Madrid Historical Museum - Housed in this museum is a collection of keepsakes donated to the Historical Society by members of the community. Included is a lovely collection of vintage clothing displayed in an antique bank vault.
Madrid Mine #7 - Walk through a replica of an underground coal mine. Experience the enclosed feeling those men of the past must have felt as they toiled in the dark, dank mine tunnels. Many artifacts are on display from the local area mines.
