  • This museum is a reproduction of El Greco's home and it is mainly designed to educate visitors about El Greco's life. This is accompanied by many reproductions of his paintings which allow visitors to...  more »
  • It is located in a set of Toledo old houses and visit very nice patios and lounges. El Greco pictures are fantastic. The gardens are also well worth. A must-see. It's free for families as it is the State network.

  • Maybe many people don't know it, but are guided by volunteer completely free at 11.00 to 12.30 and I think that at 18.00 we were alone! With two volunteers who gave us a masterclass on El Greco and his work. I think that it is best enjoyed a lot the Museum led by Toledo people who even talks of how he lived those times relatives

  • 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!
