The 17th Marques de Cerralbo was a great intellectual, and he was also very rich. Naturally he decided to go around the world collecting a massive number of curiosities that caught his fancy. Further, in the natural course of these things, his house after his death was converted into a fascinating museum.
Grand ballrooms and dining halls are the order of the day, as are precious Tupperware, suits of armor and paintings by the masters around the world. Guided tours are available and recommended.

Really interesting, if little visited, museum. The staff are a real mixed bunch. Some are just downright rude and clearly more interested in chit chatting with their colleagues than answering questions whilst others are exceptionally helpful and kind particularly the lady on the front desk.
Is nice to visit this museum again. It's always a few new exhibits. Entrance is only 3 Euros
Well preserved palace of the late 19 century Madrid nobility members. Very friendly staff. Cool bingo-style artifacts discovery game for children, so they don't get bored so soon.
Great museum house with lots of varied exhibits in beautifully decorated rooms. Well worth a visit
Would have liked to give 5 stars as the parts we saw were fascinating. However, arrived 2.25 and told it closed at 3. Then at 2.45 they wanted us to leave. Collected bag and tried to buy a guide but told no. At the exit many staff waiting to leave and it wasn't even 2.50 let alone 3
