Museo Cerralbo

The Museum Cerralbo (Spanish: Museo Cerralbo) is a museum located in Madrid, Spain. It houses the collection of Enrique de Aguilera y Gamboa, Marquis of Cerralbo. The Marquis collected all kinds of treasures and other objects from all over the world. They were shown in his private mansion. The whole building was built to impress. In 1944 the palace was opened as a museum.

The large arms collection and other weird objects reminded me of the James Bond movie "Never Say Never Again". S.P.E.C.T.R.E. headquarter seem to be a bit inspired by the baroque Cerralbo palace.
