Museum Cerralbo – What to see in Madrid in 3 days – Explore Spain
One of the best house museum in Central Madrid is the Museo Cerralbo. This former mansion was built between 1883 and 1893 and it was the former residence of the 17th Marquis of Cerralbo, the noble man don Enrique de Aguilera and his family. Since 1944 the house museum has been opened to the public.
Museo Cerralbo is one of the few examples in Madrid of a 19th century mansion which has preserved its original decor and highlights what life was like for an aristocratic family in the 19th century in Madrid. The building was designed from the outset as a residential home and a place to exhibit art, antique and curiosities.

Museum Cerralbo – Madrid Tour 2018 – Panorama
The former mansion consists of four floors: lower ground flour, mezzanine, first floor and attic area. Lower ground and attic area were once used as a service area of the home. The tour covers two of four floors: the mezzanine- and the main floor. The everyday life of the Marquis and the Marquise took place on the mezzanine floor while the social life was devoted on the main first floor.
From the main staircase I had a magnificent view onto the most scenographic spaces in the 19th century mansions.
