The museum is placed in the house of a Mexican aristocrat: Don Antonio Haghenbeck y de la Lama. He was an art collector who travelled around the world and visited countless amounts of museums, palaces and castles in every country. Hence, he decided to start his private foundation and in 1984 he donated his house in order to preserve it as a museum.
It has guided tours through its gardens and 13 rooms furnished with pieces from the 15th-20th centuries, as well as its exhibition of decorative arts. In addition, the foundation rents this venue to host big events (conferences, weddings, social events, etc.) in order to raise funds to preserve the art bought by Don Antonio.
