Museo Cerralbo

Palace of the 17th Marquis of Cerralbo

This museum is one of the most important in Madrid, although also one of the least known. Located in what was the home of the XVII Marquess of Cerralbo, museum visitors are transported back in time to experience what life was like for an aristocratic family in late 19th century Madrid.

The museum’s collection contains over 50,000 pieces, including documentary and museographic assets, such as paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glassware, tapestries, furniture, coins, medals, drawings, engravings, clocks, weapons, armor, archaeological artifacts, and more. All of these were bequeathed by the Marquess to the state so that future art enthusiasts could enjoy them.

  1. Feel like a princess! visit this wonderful Palace

    Dec 2017: Renovated gardens, Impressive (tiny) museum
    This museum is truly charming. Still only 3 euros the entrance. Fully renovated gardens late 2017. Be away from the tourist trap and massive touristic museum such as “Prado”. In a charming neighbourhood (arguelles, next to plaza de españa), only few spanish and well informed tourists are spending time in this charming palace. do not miss it, still a “must”.

    Sept 2016: Museo del Prado is so touristic, dive into a real (hidden) palace
    A fabulous house to visit for only 3 euros. Be there in the morning as it is only open up to 15:30, except on Thursday.
