This museum is very small but is in an attractive old building and does have some very attractive pieces in it. While we were there it had a big collection of metal jewellery contained in large glass ballooons (see photo).

Located opposite retiro park and close to plaza de cibeles, it's off a side street and may need a map to find. 4/5 floors contain various exhibitions, mainly ceramics but also clothing, furnishings and recreated housing. Free on Saturday afternoons and sunday until 3pm.
