I had never heard of Lazaro Galdiano before, but after visiting the museum I can appreciate how he and his wife devoted their lives and their vast wealth to acquiring all of these precious works of art. The house is beautiful, and provides a good...More

The house and the art are definitely worth seeing. This museum was not busy at all, so it was easy to see everything in under two hours. If you enjoy art and architecture, don’t skip this one!

This museum is under the Madrid Five Museum Pass. It is worth every cent you pay if you like decorative arts. It costs 12 euros & is valid for 10 days & you can access each of the 5 museums multiple times to your heart's...More

No, I think not. Mr Galdiano was obviously a very enthusiastic collector and a very interesting man. But he was not discriminating when it came to choosing works of art. There are numerous works which are of very dubious authenticity. However, its a lovely house,...More

A beautiful old house, an impressive collection. Enough space to roam freely. Nice restaurants in the area.

Housed in the mansion of Lazaro Galdiano this contains sculptures, paintings and smaller objects. Like Museo Cerralbo the mansion location and lighting may not always suit the display of artworks like ivories. For example light shining on paintings or space restrictions, the top floor has...More

This museum is just outside the centre of Madrid but is easily accessible using public transport. It is comparable to the Wallace Collection in London but in a more beautiful building set in well kept gardens. The collection is varied with many paintings focused on...More

It was only two blocks away from our hotel (Melia Galgos) and was the perfect size for a two hour visit while we were waiting for our rooms to be ready. Consider it a mini Prado with paintings from all of the major Spainish painters.

The museum is located around a ten minute walk from Rubén Dario metro station. It was built in the early 20th century and contains a wealth of primarily Iberian paintings, ceramics, books, manuscripts and jewellery. The highlight for me were the beautiful ceiling paintings throughout...More

The museum is one man's collection that was put together during the early part of the 20th century and housed in a stately mansion which still has its original frescoes and wood carvings. It is arranged in chronological order and contains mostly Spanish art with...More

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
