The Museum of Lázaro Galdiano (Spanish: Museo Lázaro Galdiano) is a museum located in Madrid, Spain. It houses the art collection of José Lázaro Galdiano.
The palatial building was constructed in 1903 as the residence of Lázaro Galdiano and his wife and is set within grounds that also hold the library containing Galdiano's important collection of incunabula and manuscripts. The conversion to a museum has respected the original interiors, which feature elaborate baroque painted ceilings commissioned by Galdiano, and the building was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1962.The museum contains important collections of valuable works from the prehistoric period to the nineteenth century, with a focus on Iberian work. Major categories include jewellery, small bronzes, both ecclesiastical and domestic silver, ceramics, carved ivory, and numismatics. Objects come not only from Iberia but also from major centers of medieval artistry, including Limoges and Egypt. While the Renaissance is especially well represented, the collection features important early medieval objects, including Visigothic work, and works crafted by Iberia's ancient Celtic culture.
The painting collection includes work by:

Bosch (St. John the Baptist in the Wilderness),
Lucas Cranach the Elder
Goya (Witches' Sabbath and other works)
George Romney
John Constable (Landscape of Flatford)
Nicolaes Maes (one female portrait)
David Teniers the Younger
Erasmus Quellinus II (The Virgin and the Child)
