Museo de Santa Cruz, Toledo

4.2
#6 of 19 in Museums in Toledo
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.

  • It was a great experience. Must admit that I didn't know much about what would be displayed but it was fascinating. Historical pictures of the Spanish monarchy and about the area. There was also a exhibition upstairs! Spent 2 1/2 hours there without noticing the time.
  • not fun-- pam sanchez did not enjoy
  • Has some great temporary expositions, the cloister is very nice and last but not least, the absolutely magnificent Greco paintings. Free on Sundays!
  • Sad that a lot of this museum is currently closed. That said an interesting temporary exhibition and a good selection of ceramics made for an interesting hour
  • A great day here in Toledo. I was surprised by the kindness of the people and also by the shape of this museum.
