This museum, set in a beautiful private mansion (not your typical sterile museum environment), is the result of one man's wealth and deep seated passion for collecting the best of everything, ranging from paintings, pottery, sculptures, coins and medals, jewelry (a side effect from everything he offered his wife), and weapons (knives, swords, rifles, etc), to the most beautiful furniture....

Just walk in the door and you will be amazed. Every part is gorgeous. The tile work is so intricate and well-preserved. The art pieces are wonderfully placed and provide a wonderful afternoon adventure.

This museum, although in a house scale is very interesting with a span of objects from jewels and arms to very fine pictures. Is located on a zone that use to be the off Madrid for the rich and famous of Madrid

My hotel was across the street so I helped myself to the museum and I'm glad I did, it was a lovely experience, very laid back and sophisticated. I nice way to spend an afternoon if you have a slight hangover from the night before...

This renovated mansion has over 30 rooms. Each room has magnificent painted ceilings, beautiful inlaid parquet floors, and fantastic paintings. Galdiano was a wonderful collector of many things. The ancient coins, swords and pottery were all quite fascinating! Free on Wednesdays and from 2-3pm on Sunday. You will need at least 2 hours to see all the floors.

This museum contains the collection of a private collector. The space is beautiful. The collection is quirky, relatively small compared to the national museums but worth a trip if you have the time. It's in a beautiful neighborhood. The collection stretches your art appreciation chops!

That someone lived here and collected all this art is totally amazing. The art itself veered towards dark and religious. You would like it more than we did if that's your thing.

The museum is set in the home of José Lázaro Galdiano. The building itself is beautiful and the art even more so. Beautiful painted ceilings, works by famous artists, particularly Spanish artists, and assorted objects of a beautiful nature. This museum is a hidden gem and well worth visiting.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With 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 opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
