Create an itinerary including Museo Cerralbo
The Marquis of Cerralbo loved to collect items from the many museums he visited across Europe in the late 19th century and early 20th century, and today his Museo Cerralbo is home to some 50,000 objects. Inside the Marquis' former palace, view paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glass, tapestries, furniture, antique coins, drawings, engravings, clocks, arms, armor, and artifacts. The museum offers a few options for guided visits: an audio guide, a professional guide, or a volunteer cultural guide. The latter is available on a limited schedule, so check to see if volunteers are offering their service during your visit. Plan your visit to Museo Cerralbo and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Madrid trip itinerary website.

  • UK visitor. I've never seen so much stuff packed in to a relatively small place. In a nice way. Judy so dense with all sorts of collections from armoury to books to Arabian. Fantastic staircase and ceilings. Well worth a visit. Kids enjoyed ticking off objects on a sheet, 15 out of 10000. Very hard but help available for last few. Excellent.
  • This is a stupendous example of how the upper classes lived in 1850-1910. Spend an hour admiring the fully furnished rooms and imagining what life was like for the Marquee and his class. Highly recommend!
  • Wonderful place to visit! Eclectic collection of fine pieces in an amazing space. We visited the Temple of Debod, then the Cerralbo, and finished the morning with a great lunch in the surrounding neighborhood. Then out of the heat until later. Great way to spend half the day!!
  • It's a beautiful museum that definitely gets overlooked in Madrid. You get to see the Marquis' personal collection and learn how royalty lived. I went with my baby and they were very accommodating with her stroller but it was a pain because some areas you do have to carry the stroller as there is no ramp. You are not allowed in with any bags so we had to go get her diaper bag from the entrance and then down to the bathroom. Just beware anyone with mobility issues.
  • A gorgeous museum, a jewel, not so big, but really wonderful! A must see if you admire works of art! Thank you for sharing!!!
