Museo Lázaro Galdiano, Madrid
(4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Inspire your visual senses at Museo Lázaro Galdiano, which houses popular works by José Lázaro Galdiano. You’ll also find pieces by other artists, such as El Greco and Joshua Reynolds. The museum was once the residence of Galdiano and his wife, and the structure and interior remain largely unaltered. It’s easy to imagine yourself in 1903, when the home was built. In addition to artwork, there’s also a large collection of jewels once owned by the lady of the house.

  • Beautiful mansion packed with all sorts of quality artwork a rich collector would acquire in his lifetime. Goyas, Grecos and other Italian, Dutch and English masterpieces. (Lelly, Constable). All sort...  more »
  • Very interesting collection which houses this museum located in Calle Serrano. I took a nice surprise by the large quantity of works of art, especially of Goya. In some hours specific make visits guided free of the Museum, that are also very recommendable. You teach the first and the second floor, and already if like visits by your has the third plant. It IS the less interesting, because they are collections of coins, bronzes, and other, but it is also worthwhile. The great works are the other plants. Also the richness of the ceilings, I was surprised since they are each one of the numerous rooms painted with a different theme. Very helpful staff! Thanks for the tips. Use the elevator to go up to the plants. It is the time and it works perfectly.

  • The spectacular Palace of three floors and with stunning frescoes, hosts a varied collection of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, coins, weapons, etc. Without a doubt, one of the essential museums in Madrid. It's funnier because it has plenty of seasonal collections, one you'll like. Anecdotally, it has a 'classic' elevator with a sofa inside.

  • Go there if you re around. It s not an option. It s a must. And it will be a shame if you could and did not. Really. It s a great collection.
  • A private collection turned into a museum, the visit is well worth the 3€ admission fee. They have temporary displays (in addition to their permanent collection) and an interesting calendar of activities and events.
  • Most exquisite collection of art. Very impressive, a must see!
  • IT WAS VERY GOOD THANK YOU!
  • good place
