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.

  • Many articles of the 15th and 16th centuries, paintings, carpets and other historical objects mainly related to the Catholic religion. Recommend.

  • In this museum you will find large contrasts of works from pictorial to tapestries but is very interesting, of all ways there is a small term of entry free the Monday by the afternoon (ask in case before). is large and there is that take you a good time to see it whole but deserves the penalty

  • 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
