  • Original museum, as it was the house of the Painter Sorolla. Admission costs three euros, and all the premises of the house are visited. Bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, the room where i painted. The house, in addition to having the furniture of the time, is an authentic museum of his paintings, since all the rooms are full of his works. At the entrance you also see the garden of the house which is a real wonder. A museum that may not be well known, but that is a real jewel of art.

  • Museo de Sorolla is a spectacular place in the heart of Madrid. Whose Andalusian courtyard conveys a lot of tranquility and peace. And the paintings of this extraordinary painter are unforgettable. I recommend visiting this place. I was there several times and I'd certainly come back again.

  • This museum house is very nice. Located in residential neighborhood, a few steps from the Paseo de la Castellana. Beautiful gardens and beautiful interiors. There is a guided tour that costs 6 euros, unmissable. Interesting explanations; every query has their answer. The house is toured with its original furniture and many paintings by Joaquín Sorolla. On the upper floor there are temporary samples. On my visit you could see small works of Sorolla, beautiful.

  • Superb museum! If impressionists are among your favorite painters you have to visit Sorolla where he lived with his family. Beautiful house full of great paintings and surrounded by peaceful gardens where apprentices try hard everyday to become the next great Spanish painter. I highly recommend to treat yourself with this experience. I believe that you won't regret it
  • The museum is his home. It is so intimate and warm. Not to mention free! The courtyards are lovely too. Stocked with beautiful paintings and sculptures, as well as antique furniture.
  • I saw the Sorolla exhibition in London and was really excited to come here. Absolutely beautiful exhibition put together with so much love. And on Sunday it was free!
  • Excellent House - Museum of Spanish painter Sorolla. Painter was very productive and has lots of paintings. The family donated this Museum to the Spanish State, so all Sorolla's art pieces, furniture and other objects would not be disperse. A must see when touring Madrid.
  • Definitely come here to see beautiful architecture and art. You can tell this was the home of an artist... no matter the perspective, you are looking at something beautiful and well crafted.
