  • This is the first time I visited the museum. Absolutely amazing collection of art work. I definitely will be returning next year.

  • The artwork is fabulous. The setting is the home and studio he and his family lived in. The house and gardens are well maintained and make a perfect place to exhibit his work. I’ve been many times...

  • Having recently stumbled across Sorolla’s paintings a few years back, it’s easy to see why Monet referred to him as ‘the master of light’. Since then, it’s had been on my bucket list to visit this...

  • Such a lovely atmosphere! I recognized Sorolla's work but was not familiar enough with him to put this museum at the top of my list. It's such a beautiful house and garden and the feeling there is peaceful and quiet--despite my being chastised by the docent for accidentally bumping into a chair! I listened to the audio tour and still found the laminated cards helpful. The upstairs was closed today. It was a refreshing break after the the Prado and Reina Sofia, especially since it was very inexpensive and I could take all the pics I wanted.
  • Former house of the impressionist painter, now transformed into a museum. It is a pleasant visit where you can see some of the original paints of Sorrolla, sculptures, furniture and potter present in the house. All these objects are exhibited within 6-8 rooms and gardens with information available to read in every room. Certainly, it is worth the visit
  • A hidden gem! There are laminated guides in the first few rooms that explain the context and style of each painting, which was so helpful. His Andalusian style home is absolutely stunning, I’m amazed at how beautifully it has been preserved and maintained! I learned so much about the life and work of Sorolla. Definitely recommend taking time to sit in the gardens and enjoy the sounds of fountains and singing birds.
  • Such a charming museum. Small, which is a relief after visiting the major ones, and full of Sorolla’s light and warm paintings. After the visit one can relax in the beautiful garden. A must see.
  • This museum is Sorolla’s former family home. It is peaceful, full of light and creative energy. Sorolla’s love for light, water and his family radiate throughout the museum. The garden is a hidden oasis in the middle of the city. Free entry. English audio guide was helpful and available for a small fee
