Museo Cerralbo, Madrid

4.6
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.

  • Would not qualify it must-see for tourists that is a few days in Madrid, but if it is a good option if you're there or you'll be a few days more. Close to other points of interest, is a Palace with an architecture and interesting decor.

  • The magnificent Palace of the marquis of Cerralbo evokes the aristocratic life in Madrid at the beginning of the 20th century. It keeps also splendid collections of paintings, porcelain, or even armor the marquis loved to collect. Things to see outside the box

  • A wonderful surprise in an unsuspected place. A personal collection covering several artifacts collected in life by the owner of the house. It really is worth the visit. All the rooms are sumptuous!
  • This stunning palace is one of the most beautiful museums in Madrid. It isn't crowded. At the ticket office they give you a guidebook to explore and understand the palace and his owner. The visit is about 1:30 long and it's recommended. You can also take photos, this is not allowed in other museum like the Prado.
  • Interesting collection and an attractive palace--takes about ninety minutes to fully appreciate. The guidebook provided by the admission desk is particularly laudable in its detail. Free if you own the very reasonably priced annual Madrid museum pass (which also includes priority admission to the Prado and Reina Sofia).
  • One of my top two - this and Sorolla- to see a mans collections displayed as the family would have lived with them -such a treat! A must in my opinion!
  • I was there on a weekday morning, a rainy morning that was why we we're not allowed to enjoy the garden. So I got very impressed but the bathroom showed me how well we live today even not being rich

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
