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.

Museo Lazaro Galdiano Reviews
Die Sammlung Lazaro Galdiano ist ein wahres Juwel. Wenn man sich auf die subjektive Auswahl des kunstsinnigen Sammlers verlässt (ich tue es), wird man reich belohnt. Ein Gang durch 500 Jahre Denken un... more »The Lazaro Galdiano Collection is a true gem. If you rely on the subjective selection of the art-minded collector (I do), you will be richly rewarded. A walk through 500 years of thinking and feeling in life and in art until the 20th century can make one's head buzz after 1-2 hours, nevertheless one can escape the overload, the size is manageable. The ambience is phenomenal. If you don't like going to the big museums, and the associated time, you're in the right place. Even if you may still have 2-3 hours to fly, it's worth a visit. I also recommend the nearby Museo Sorolla, also a gem.
Es un museo que no tiene tanta fama como otro en Madrid, pero que no hay que dejar de visitar, tanto por lo que se expone, como por el lugar donde se encuentra. more »It is a museum that is not as famous as another in Madrid, but that you should not miss, both for what it is exposed, and for the place where it is located.
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.
