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.

  • Alongside the Sorolla Museum, the Cerralbo Museum was the most liked places to visit in Madrid. For me, it will be two of the finest museums in the capital. They are not big mule and about 1 to 2 hours is enough to see everything. The proof that the interior is worth much more than huge spaces and that capture the attention for its grandeur. The Cerralbo Museum, like the Sorolla, was adapted to the museum, and was an aristocratic mansion. It was therefore the museum, in 1944, being considered in 1962 1 artistic historical Monument. You can visit it for free every Sunday, between 10-15 hours.

  • Welcome to the @museocerralbo, a hidden place in Madrid, for which time has not passed and invites us to dream. It is a historical house that is a reference of the Spanish collector's taste in the last decades of the nineteenth century, (The Marquis of Cerralbo commands to build a residential complex where it houses its collections, the fruit of its numerous trips) preserving the essence of that time and being a witness to the way of life of Madrid's high society of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. #charouleciaturismoymoda #planesculturalesenmadrid #charouleciatouristplanner #madridsiempremadrid #museosdemadrid #madridsiempremadrid #edificioshistoricosdemadrid #edificioshistoricosdemadrid #cincomuseosotromadrid #cincomuseosotromadrid

  • 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!
