  • Nice museum, but extremely crowded. Not a great deal of character as a house, but some interesting exhibitions on El Greco and his art. 
  • Museum interesting which allows better knowledge el Greco and his time in Toledo, for me it is a place

  • Be in Toledo and not to visit the Museum of its most illustrious citizen is to not talk about it. Inside you can learn many things from his life and how it reflected them in his works

  • This museum was assembled to commemorate El Greco and show the kind of house he lived in. It has been nicely done. It gives a good impression of both his life and his paintings. Many paintings are copies but there are a few originals, and the series on the 12 apostles is impressive. Well worth a visit. Pensioners go free.
  • House restored as if it were the 16th century. Good showcase of history. Could have more paintings since most are replicas.
  • This is a fine and kind of quirky museum. Though there are a few paintings that stand out in the collection, I think one's time and money are better spent seeing the Cathedral's collection.
  • Small but interesting museum. It is not actually El Greco's house, but a similar one. Some paintings by El Greco himself and lots of paintings of his students and imitators.
  • Well, this is what you can call a rip off. Fair enough that there was some nobleman who thought he was buying Greco's house, and admitted he didn't. That's what you get throughout the whole house. You get a total of 4 of Greco's paintings (€0.75 per painting - not a bad bargain), and a ton of someone's imagination of what Greco's house could've looked like, but not the actual!
