  • If you go to Toledo it is paramount to visit somewhere, a walk through the life and work of el Greco, as well as by the House designed and decorated according to the model of the time, can imagine as it could be the life of the painter. It is worth to go with time to see every corner of the House and the works that are exhibited.

  • The building is well and gives an idea of how life was in the time of the Greco. There are also some caves. What is really worthwhile is the collection of paintings, and, among them, the Apostles of the Greco. There is a joint with the Jewish quarter of the transit entry. It is worth watching both.

  • Paintings that are there are exceptional, very well cared for and the entire Museum is worth visiting it

  • 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!
