National Sculpture Museum, Valladolid
(4.8/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • Spectacular, the building is impressive. Visit obliged. As a curiosity, the facade there is a snail as symbol to test visual acuity, and be rewarded for it with the same magical effects as the frog in Salamanca. There are so many overlapping images and many decorative elements which is really hard to focus on any of them. The animal appears punished by two figures of children placed at the sides, one that is about to poke him with a stick and another that tries to pass him through with a spear. So the snail symbolizes the fight against laziness, identifying the slowness of snail with vagrancy that must be combated by the students.

  • 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.
