People choose a destination based on what is important to them. If the goal is strictly to see musuems then that is a valid reason. Even in that case they will no doubt discover that Madrid has many other great things to offer once there.

That's true enough. Finding a functioning ATM shouldn't be hard though, even if the first one you encounter doesn't work. I wouldn't bother taking Euros unless you are a nervous type. If all else fails you can probably exchange some cash at the airport or train station (at poor rates). A travelling friend also might be able to front you a couple of Euros just in case.
