The Lázaro Galdiano Museum (Spanish: Museo Lázaro Galdiano) is a museum located in Madrid, Spain. It houses the art collection of José Lázaro Galdiano. The museum was inaugurated on 27 January 1951.
The palatial building was constructed in 1903 as the residence of Lázaro Galdiano and his wife and is set within grounds that also hold the library containing Galdiano's important collection of incunabula and manuscripts. The conversion to a museum has respected the original interiors, which feature elaborate baroque painted ceilings commissioned by Galdiano,

This was good but did not have the charm of Sorolla or Cerralbo museums. Alot to get through and the textile collection is impressive. My personal preference is for a house museum that still feels like a house but its interesting to see.

Really interesting place. It's unbelievable to see what one person is able to collect during his life!! You wont find here just paintings but also sculptures, jewellery, weapons, textiles etc... I truly enjoyed my time in this mansion. The building itself is soo beautiful... I appreciated also little photos of how all the rooms looked when Mr. Galdiano lived there. In fact I secretly wished this museum wasn't about his collection... I wished I could see how Mr. Galdiano lived (furniture, items he used etc...) After visit it was also pleasure to sit in the garden. I just didn't like that you must visit the rooms in the exact order. The staff didn't let me enjoy my visit, stopped me in the middle and told me in which direction I should go. I mean... nobody cares if they see first room number 7 or 11, common... It would be ridiculous to say visitors in Museo del Prado in which order they are supposed to go too...

Great museum in the Salamanca district. No crowds and very interesting exhibitions.
