This sort of historic townhouse museum always interests me, and this was a particularly nice one depicting bourgeois Madrid life in the 19th century. There was ample English information, and it was pleasantly quiet therefore good for photographs. The rooms were very well decked out with furniture and artworks. A very good place to visit, especially if it rains. The... More

It's not one of the most important Museum in Madrid, but it's really beautiful. You visit an old palace and every room has its own decoration. When you arrive and pay the tickets they give you a guide describing furnitures and use of the room during XIX century. If you like romantic literature you can't miss this Museum.

One of five house museums in Madrid, this museum is full of charming period rooms and art of the 19th century. We were glad we walked here as it gave us insight into the neighborhood as well. Recommended if you like to see how well-off people lived in that period.

Only 3 Euros to see 26 great rooms full of paintings, furniture, costumes and all the other things that you find in historic houses. Good tea-room. Bags must be put in the lockers

This house museum is packed with interesting period furniture and pieces of the time. It was free the day we went and it did not disappoint. Double check the hours though, since it has limited hours. A definite pleasant surprise for a small museum.

I love this museum and am so glad I found the recommendations on TripAdvisor as it is a bit out of the way, away from all the main art museums in Madrid. It is a beautifully preserved family home from the Romantic period with original features and extra appropriate furnishings borrowed from the Prado Museum, etc. I would have happily... More

Found this amongst some Trip Advisor guides and it was not a disappointment. It can take a while to get in as they operate a policy of only letting a few in at a time. So when a few come out they let a few in. It was free on the day we went(Sunday) but 3 euros at other times.... More

It was a great experience for me. To understand the romanticism period you should visit this museum. Everything in the museum is well decorated and it is hard to not like it.

A small museum but it is a gem . Do not miss this if you are in Madrid. Not easy to locate at first but well worth searching for the entrance.

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
