This museum, one of the most important in Madrid, is also one of its least well-known. Located in what used to be the stately home of the 17th Marquis of Cerralbo, visitors to the museum are transported back in time to experience what life was like for an aristocratic family in late 19th-century Madrid.
The museum’s collection holds more than 50,000 pieces, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glassware, tapestries, furniture, coins, medals, drawings, prints, clocks, weapons, armour, archaeological artefacts, and more. All of it was donated by the Marquis to the city of Madrid so that it might be enjoyed by future art connoisseurs.
