Museo De Santa Cruz, Toledo

(4.1/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Explore Museo De Santa Cruz, a museum featuring collections dedicated to the history and artwork of Toledo. The famous artist El Greco is highlighted heavily here, and the tapestries and ceramics are worth your time. Besides the exhibits, the architecture is a draw: Gothic and Plateresque styles join to create a magical sight. Check out the high ceilings, the long galleries, and the worn wooden doors and floorboards. There is little in way of English descriptions, so you may want to hire a guide. Museo De Santa Cruz is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Toledo Edition.

  • In my opinion this museum you can safely exclude from inspection programme masterpieces of Toledo (which will save you 5 (e)), or go here if you really just do nothing. In my personal opinion of El Greco does not really work persons, while in color but great. The main masterpiece of El Greco "the burial of count Orgaz"-in the Church of s. Tomé. That's really really was a surprise-exceptional, is beyond praise.

  • We visited this museum to view the El Greco paintings. It was very much worth it. All of the art is nicely displayed, there is plenty of room to observe with other patrons, and the rooms are easy to n...  more »

  • Nicely curated museum. A lot of history outlined.
  • See some real El Greco's for a small price in a manageable size museum. I like the variety of types of art.
  • Not bad if you do what we did and get to Toledo before everything is open. Just don't go to the Prado the day before or you will be museumed out.
  • Random mix of art and historical exhibits, including an African art section (?). They have a few El Greco paintings, but otherwise there wasn't much I found compelling here. The building itself is kind of neat. The automated ticket machine didn't give me back change, so use a credit card or get a ticket from a person at the booth.
  • Love this place. Looks beautiful
