National Sculpture Museum, Valladolid

(4.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Housed inside the Colegio de San Gregorio, National Sculpture Museum contains an array of sculptures dating from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Wooden polychrome pieces, which come mainly from convents, donations, and state acquisitions, figure prominently in the collection. You can usually only admire these pieces from a distance at Spain’s churches and cathedrals, but here you can inspect their intricate details up close. From the outside the cathedral, admire the intricate facade of the 15th-century Colegio de San Gregorio.

  • I again visited the National Museum of sculpture, and I think that I enjoy this place as the first day that I visited in the year 1969, may be even more because today I have knowledge about the art and architecture who then had. Place to visit in Valladolid. Also the temporary exhibition of carvings of bullfighting themes in annex to the Museum, Palace of Villena, worth being visited.

  • I visited when it was free entry, which is on Saturday from 4 pm to 7.30 pm and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm. The museum is in three parts, all close by each other. Make sure you see all three parts, and not just the main museum. The main museum takes you through a history of religious sculpture, which is more interesting than it sounds. Some information is in English, but taking a guide book helps. The smaller gallery a little way up the street has a good selection of Greek and Roman statues, and some other art. The final gallery across the street has one of the most fabulous Nativity scenes that you will ever see. You won't believe your eyes.
  • Important Museum of Art. It contains a lot of ancient sculptures.
  • €3 entry and you get to see the most amazing sculptures
  • Surprisingly interesting and
  • It is an essential travel on the Castilian imagery of the Renaissance and the Baroque. It has exposure of sculpture and painting permanent distributed in 20 rooms. Therefore it is a Museum of religious sculpture since the Church was the great patron of the time. You can see Juan de Juny, Gregorio Fernández, stew, altarpieces in churches... As for the building, the central cloister is stunning and beautiful staircase to the second floor. visiting hours mplitud being free on Saturday afternoon. Re-fuel for your interest if you spend by Valladolid.
