El Museo Cerralbo es un museo nacional español con sede en Madrid (España) y que alberga la antigua colección privada de obras de arte, objetos arqueológicos y demás antigüedades reunida por Enrique de Aguilera y Gamboa (1845-1922), XVII marqués de Cerralbo, quien ejerció la política, pero, sobre todo, es recordado por su faceta como historiador y promotor de diversas excavaciones arqueológicas. El Cerralbo se considera un «museo de ambiente», es decir, presenta la singularidad de ser uno de los escasos palacios decimonónicos madrileños que todavía conserva su decoración original.
El marqués falleció en 1922 y, en su testamento, legó la gran mayoría de sus piezas de arqueología al Museo Arqueológico Nacional y al Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, así como el resto de su colección y el palacio que la custodia —construido entre 1883 y 1893 por Alejandro Sureda, Luis Cabello Asó y Luis Cabello Lapiedra, sucesivamente—, al Estado, que aceptó el legado testamentario por real orden de 10 de abril y 24 de septiembre de 1924. Diez años después, se constituyó la Fundación Museo Cerralbo (O. M. de 22 de marzo de 1934). En su interior, se conservan más de 50000 objetos, entre antigüedades, esculturas, mobiliario, diversas artes decorativas, dibujos y grabados o pinturas, donde sobresalen grandes nombres como El Greco, Zurbarán, Bronzino, Tintoretto o Van Dyck.

The Marquis of Cerralbo maybe was the most important collectors of artifacts in Madrid, in the late 19th century. He was generous enough to donate his house & art collection to the city of Madrid so that it might be enjoyed by future art connoisseurs. Once you step inside the not so impressive house from the outside, you will enter a fine house, full of decorative objects, furniture, paintings, sculptures, maps, armory, coins, antiquities, archeological objects, serveware, glassware, etc. It is stated by the museum that the collection holds more than 50.000 items! The number seems insane but it might be true! There is so much to see! It is a paradise for people that like antiques & decorative arts! Even if you don't like a certain style there is certainly another room that will be closer to your liking. Every room of the many the house has, is decorated in a different style & has a different character. It is one of the most important museums in Madrid & also the one of the least known, as stated by the locals. I don't just recommend it to my friends visiting Madrid... I oblige them to visit the Cerralbo Museum!

An excellent mansion, with many interesting things to see. Each part of it is a real masterpiece. All the rooms are perfectly decorated , resulting in a beauty that can be compared to that of the interior of many palaces through out Europe. Just perfect!!

For 3 euro a whole lot to see. A minimum of 2 hours. Unbelievable opulence the family lived in. But then they died out and it was left to the state. Life heh?

Great museum, unique in a way. Just beware - this place is absolutely not suitable for kids. You will have to either keep them in a stroller all the time, or in hands.

What a palace. It's not big but the decor is one of the best I've seen

Step into the life of a turn-of-the-century Spanish aristocratic family and bask in the beauty and splendour of this mansion that, for all its lavishness, seems utterly in proportion and surprisingly never over-the-top. With a magnificent sweeping staircase and gold painted balustrade, it's filled with fascinating and exquisite furnishings, paintings and objects. I loved the chandelier from Murano, the murals, the 'fairy chime' clock, the banquet room, ballroom...everything. And for all its grandeur, there is such a feeling of quiet grace and intimacy here. Do try and see it – it's just a short walk from the Temple of Debod.

Beautiful old townhouse with wonderful collection of artwork and furnishings. Close to the Royal Palace and Plaza D'Espana. Free for seniors and well worth a 90 minute visit.

This amazing house museum is full of the things a wealthy family of the late 1800's would have. A sensational look at how the 1% lived. The 1st floor used for entertaining is quite unique, arranged in a square around a central shaft it shows off the extensive art collection of the Cerralbo family. The actual "Ball Room" is small as is the Dining room, but a guest could walk around all 4 sides. There were many small rooms off of the square for more private tete-a-tetes. The "folly in the small garden was also used for emtertaining.

Amazing show of wealth. Simply stunning, well worth the very small admission fee.
