The Museo del Romanticismo transports visitors back to a fascinating era. In this mansion in the centre of Madrid, the atmosphere, rooms and lifestyle of the wealthy bourgeoisie of the 19th century have been recreated. Walking through the ballroom, dining room or garden, the visitor will become acquainted with the main protagonists of the Romantic artistic and cultural movement in Spain, which coincided with the reign of Queen Isabella II (1833-1868).
The collections of the Museo del Romanticismo are characterised by their quality and diversity. The collection of paintings, comprising works by Goya, Madrazo, Esquivel and Pérez Villaamil, among others, stands out, but there are also sculptures, miniatures, drawings, prints, photographs, furniture, decorative arts and curious everyday objects; in short, a wide variety of pieces which help recreate the customs and traditions of an entire era.
Seeking to be an active centre open to everyone, the Museum holds cultural activities for all ages, including concerts, workshops for children and young people, storytelling, talks and many other activities.
