Inspire your visual senses at Museo Lazaro 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.

  • One of the ‘hidden/unknown’ treasures of Madrid. The question should not be if to visit this place but when. The ground floor displays some art but should not be the center of your visit to this museum. The main reason to visit this museum are the first and second floor. The ceilings on the first and second floor are absolutely amazing and so is the art displayed around all floors.
  • Truly beautiful museum, a bit off the center so it's much more quiet. you can enjoy works of a few great masters,.almost on your own. It's also a good size.you can see the whole place in a nice visit. Beautiful little gardenn as well.
  • Would have been a 5 except they closed an hour and a half earlier than posted and charged me 7 euros to walk in a 1/2 hour early on a day when they had free admission from 2-3.... Pretty unreasonable to not tell you that on arrival.
  • this is definitely a museum to visit I loved every artwork in here and this gentleman galdiano he's been a collector of various works of art on oil paintings things out there Leonardo DaVinci Francisco Goya and a whole bunch of different other things but what is noticeable about the artworks did he did collect was that they were all top-notch Best of the Best of the most beautiful things it is definitely wonderful to see something a reflection of a person's dreams and travels and ideas and fusion of beauty at collected in one place and then turn into a museum with his home being visited by so many people lovers of history and people being taught this information not stop because of this definitely worth a visit
  • Oh my good its fantastic, amazing, its just how could I express my feelings. I'm very excited to be there with all this incredible people enjoing so much I cant tell all the ways haha, Its too much!!!!
