  • If you want a different museum visit do not hesitate to go to the small House Museum where he lived Sorolla; you viajareis to the magic of the beginning of the twentieth century, you will see the intact period furniture and a small outdoor garden... nobody has captured in his paintings color, light and movement as the great master Sorolla.

  • What a Madrid hidden gem! Always love visitng artist's homes and studios and Joaquin Sorolla was obviously a highly successful Impressionist artist so his house, garden and studio are beautiful and well-worth a visit.
  • Wonderful house of a wealthy family from beginning of 20th century. House is fully mobilated with original furniture. It gives the visitor not only a glimp into the painter's work, but also into his private home. Also the garden is a perfect place to visit and relax. Highly recommended for a visit!
  • Small but a must if you are in Madrid and you are interested in the works of this great artist. The map provided with the ticket offers limited information (enough for a quick tour) but if you want to make the most out of your visit you may want to pay for a guided tour (recommended).
  • I did not know this artist and now I think I can not live anymore without her. The paints are fully of colour and even the house of the exposition is quaint. Amazing experience.
  • It is much better than an average museum. It is a house of an artist with its peculiar rooms and history. I really enjoyed to go through the rooms and look at the paintings. Also there is a very beautiful garden and a collection of ceramics. This family house is really lovable. I hope you will also enjoy the visit.
