The visitor itinerary begins after entering the Vestibule (Museum entrance) and the Main Staircase. The Mezzanine Floor, or first floor, features the familys private rooms. The Main Floor, or second floor, corresponds to the rooms where the Marquis arranged his extensive collections with decorative and museographic criteria.
The ensemble exhibited in the Cerralbo Museum was considered to be one of the most important private collections in the country and, without a doubt, the most complete of its time. Visitors will be surprised by the diversity of objects, 16th to 19th century European paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, coins, medals, archaeology objects, arms and armour and bibliographic collections as well as the broad representation of decorative arts from all eras and styles (watches, lamps, jewels, ceramic pieces, furniture, rugs and tapestries).
