Fundacion Juan March
#28 of 133 Museums in Madrid
William Morris was one of the prime leaders of the Arts and Crafts Movement in England and the Juan March Museum had many of his designs in fabrics, wallpapers, and furniture.
So the smart thing to do (unless you manage to book online) is to be present at 11.00 hrs sharp to queue up -- this goes very fast -- and then visit the exhibition in the museum until the performance starts.
