Museo del Jamon is a unique group of bars in Madrid with hundreds of hams hanging from the ceiling.

Museo del Jamon began as a fruit shop and grocery store, until it became one of the best-known delicatessens in Madrid’s Los Extremadurans area.

The Jamón Museum was born in Madrid in August 1978, founded by the brothers Don Luis and Don Francisco Muñoz Heras. What better name for these establishments than the Ham Museum, in a city where that has some of the best museums in the world and a country that produces some of the best ham in the world.
The Museo del Jamon establishments were the first ‘theme’ bars in Spain, since on their walls are displayed hams from all corners of the country, creating a great attraction for the true Madrileños and tourists alike, as the locals know that the quality of the ham and tapas is excellent yet at very reasonable prices!

Fun fact: Museo del Jamon is famous for being used as a location in Pedro Almodóvar’s 1997 film Carne Trémula (Live Flesh).
