A Historical Overview: From Origin to Tradition

Nougat, with its roots going back to time immemorial, has long been a symbol of festivity and delight around the world. From its first mentions in medieval Spain to its ubiquitous presence on holiday tables, nougat has witnessed history and been an integral part of cultural celebrations.

The Museo del Turrón de Madrid seeks to encapsulate this rich heritage, providing visitors with an immersive experience into the creation process, the diversity of flavours and the stories behind this iconic delicacy. The opening of the museum not only marks a milestone for Madrid, but also pays tribute to the dedication of generations of master turron makers who have taken this delicious tradition to new heights.

Art and Taste: The Main Exhibition

The Museo del Turrón is not simply a showcase of delicacies; it is a tribute to the art of nougat creation. The museum’s main exhibition guides visitors through the history of this delicacy, from its origins to modern creative variations. Miniature nougat sculptures, interactive installations and live demonstrations offer a unique visual and educational experience for all nougat lovers.

In addition, the museum houses an impressive collection of nougat from around the world, from traditional recipes to contemporary innovations. Visitors can explore the evolution of flavours and techniques, from classic almond nougat to surprising combinations that awaken the senses.

A Feast for the Senses: The Gastronomic Experience

The Nougat Museum not only delights the eye, but also the palate. The culinary experience offers visitors the opportunity to taste a variety of carefully selected nougats, paired with wines and liqueurs that enhance the unique flavours of each creation.
