Museo De Santa Cruz, Toledo

(4.1/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • A museum with several pictures of El Creco and is there my favorite painting "El Expolio" simply stands out others. Also had great in homage to Cervantes, books, pictures...

  • To the margin of the exhibitions that can find is, it true is that this place, both in its outside as inteiror, has a wealth architectural huge. Bridging distances, and lesser extent, remember at times in the Manueline style of the Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon. Although it is not very hyped, the truth is that it is missed.

  • 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
