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.

  • If you are traveling to Valladolid, you can not miss this Museum, which hosts a large number of sculptures of the best authors, from the Middle Ages until the 19TH century. Very interesting also its temporary exhibitions.

  • Who's Valladlid can't miss the opportunity to see this museum. There's no Michelangelo or Bernini, but there are large sculptures of Spanish artists. For those who like art, not to be missed.

  • Beautiful and wonderful, once you have visited a Museum, no longer need to visit others, because I saw so many works of sculpture, doesn't seem to have been made by humans there are 400, 500 years ... impressive so beautiful and well made with emotions, I was amazed with fantastic works ...

  • 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.
  • Surprisingly interesting and
  • A treasure of the Holy week and the Valladolid Baroque workshop.

  • There are better things to do and by valladolid that go to this museum ejemplo:ruta of the castles, Penafiel and its surroundings, Coca, Alcazar of segovia as many statues steps of Holy week and pictures get bored a lot and more if you charge. Officials with good sueldazos warm on their lecterns, pufff cosasmucho best see this museum should be free too many people going there and to see interesting things and museums is science, not worth of the car from salamanca here all very bland and expensive I do not recommend the visit go to visit a winery example arzuaga there if things and not good there are

  • There is no reason that justifies the limited visibility which has this completely historical place. And not only for the quality of the collection, unique in the world, but the features of the building, historic shuttle not only vallsioletana, but of national significance. Who go to Valladoly and do not visit it is as if not gone hear.
