“A wonderful private collection in a delightful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

This is a place I keep going back to. Delightful paintings: I love the young Christ by Marco d'Oggiono from the workshop of Da Vinci. I was thrilled to see it recently in the London Da Vinci exhibition. A real jewel. The house is a lovely setting and a haven of peace in a such a hectic city.

“Smaller Museum, Nicely Laid Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

This museum reminded us of the Mauritz House in The Hague, given that it was smaller than most museums. The collection had more 'domestic' articles than we were interested in - would have been great if we were interested in silver work, plates, etc. The art work was worth seeing, and the insight into the articles the very rich surrounded themselves with was interesting. We both couldn't help but think of the many people who did without so that this family could live in splendor.

“This is a gem of a palatial home turned private collection museum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

Open on Mondays, this palatial home is near the Salamanca shopping district, American Embassy, Abba Madrid, AC Avenida de América hotels.

II have been three times and not seen it all in detail.

It contains everything from weapons to stately furniture.

A stroll through this beautifully restored and maintained home will be a pleasant experience for anyone, all ages.
