The Museo de la Sierra-Pambley Foundation is divided into two distinct parts, firstly we can see the housing where Sierra-Pambley family lived, a bourgeois nineteenth century mansion decorated with period furniture and moreover the Cossio Chamber, that is dedicated to the educational work of the Sierra-Pambley Foundation.
Firstly we found the home of the family, a bourgeois nineteenth century house that occupies the top two floors of the building. The main floor was intended for the social life of the family and the second floor allocated for the family life and private.
The main floor of the Museum of the Sierra-Pambley Foundation, called “main room” shows the various rooms intended to the protocol. This main floor is decorated and furnished with luxury as this was the demonstration of economic and social status of the families.
Following the tour for this plant you can enjoy the different stays as the “game room” where there is a pool and various table games, the “smoking room” designed for gentlemen, the “room where the dances were held or gala dinners “, the “living room of accompanying” designed for ladies, an “dispatch” with a desk and swivel chair, an innovative “toilet” for the time, and an “austere bedroom”.
The second floor of the museum is dedicated to family life where we can find the “dining area” where the family ate and would gather, the “boudoir” destined for daily grooming, the “main room” with a large bed, the “the dispatch of Segundo Sierra Pambley”, the “music room” with a piano, a “cabinet” where were received the closer friends and the “bedrooms” for the rest of the family and the guests.
Following the visit to the museum we found the Room Cossio designed to show us the teaching of the Sierra-Pambley Foundation to spread the educational model of the Free Institution of Education. Here is where you can learn the history of the foundation by archiving documents, photographs, educational materials and the work done by the students of the schools associated with the foundation.
