  • This museum exhibits in the former residence of José Lázaro Galdiano, who donated to the city its heterogeneous collection of works of art including paintings, sculptures, miniatures, and other objects of great cultural interest. It is located in the exclusive Salamanca district, on calle Serrano. The gardens and the facade seem to come out of a box. The rooms are quite spacious and the room central homeless, as it was common in this kind of buildings. The upper floors are perceived from below, only separated by wooden Rails. Visit pleasant and quiet, ideal for family or couple.

  • I did not know this Museum, but we have been this Sunday in a guided tour of the exhibition of Goya and Buñuel. It has been a very pleasant surprise, the building of the Museum and garden is spectacular in Serrano Street, and the visit has not been able to be more interesting. The guide had much knowledge has made us guided by the lives of Buñuel and Goya in a very interesting way and has helped us to question and to awaken our curiosity in the work of these day geniuses.

  • Museum is a gem that has much interest if, but I want to emphasize thematic visits that periodically; normally after finishing the regular schedule. They are a nice and interesting way of approaching our recent history, in a small group

  • This was good but did not have the charm of Sorolla or Cerralbo museums. Alot to get through and the textile collection is impressive. My personal preference is for a house museum that still feels like a house but its interesting to see.
  • Very nice. Well worth a couple of hours. Beautiful building and grounds. Staff pleasant.
  • Really interesting place. It's unbelievable to see what one person is able to collect during his life!! You wont find here just paintings but also sculptures, jewellery, weapons, textiles etc... I truly enjoyed my time in this mansion. The building itself is soo beautiful... I appreciated also little photos of how all the rooms looked when Mr. Galdiano lived there. In fact I secretly wished this museum wasn't about his collection... I wished I could see how Mr. Galdiano lived (furniture, items he used etc...) After visit it was also pleasure to sit in the garden. I just didn't like that you must visit the rooms in the exact order. The staff didn't let me enjoy my visit, stopped me in the middle and told me in which direction I should go. I mean... nobody cares if they see first room number 7 or 11, common... It would be ridiculous to say visitors in Museo del Prado in which order they are supposed to go too...
  • Great museum in the Salamanca district. No crowds and very interesting exhibitions.
  • Go there if you re around. It s not an option. It s a must. And it will be a shame if you could and did not. Really. It s a great collection.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
