One of the best house museum in Central Madrid is the Cerralbo Museum. This 19th century building served as a 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.
Museum 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 main or also known as the first floor was devoted to the social life. It is one of the finest place to be which was decorated in the most sumptuous and artistic way to mirror the wealth and social position of the proprietors.

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.
I was absolutely stunned about the beauty of Cerralbo Museum and I felt privilege to enter and to walk into one of the most sumptuous and artistic decorated mansion of the 19th century in Madrid.
