The Museum is located in a restored palace. The collection itself is notable, but the museum is presented as a 19th century upper class home. Furnishings and decorations are exquisite, and each gallery is designed as a particular room in family life. A guide book provided at the front desk explains the function of each room, and how customs developed during the Romantic period in Spain.
Of course, few families would display such a dense profusion of art and decore. It would be possible to spend hours admiring details of each piece, but a casual visitor will be very satisfied strolling through the entire museum in about 45 minutes.
One might like to spend even more time in the pleasant garden cafe, which is accessible without purchasing museum admission.
There seemed to be few international visitors here, and I was glad to be away from the masses wandering around the more famous Madrid museums.
