There was nothing to dislike! The building is an ex-convent and the interior is wonderful with huge domed and vaulted, decorated ceilings. The rooms are laid out in a sensible order which is easy to follow and there are masses of Zurbarans, Leals and Murillos to savour. This place really is a "Must-see!"

This museum and the archeological museum opposite must form the most pleasant square in Seville. The museum itself is housed in an old convent and is worth a look for that alone. The displays lack excitement, but will hold your interest of an hour. It is inexpensive and quiet compared to other attractions. For those interested in Spanish lace, there... More

Lovely museum - lot of religious art which is not really my thing, but plenty of more contemporary art that is much more interesting. Building itself is also stunning. Was slightly confused by the signs and didn't take my camera in, but you can use without flash and would be well worth it. Free entry if you show your passport.

We were admitted for free on the day we visited, so we were very pleased. The exhibits were interesting, and we liked the museum very much. It's on the hop on and off bus tour line, so easily accessible.

After visiting the Prado we had no expectations for a small local museum-what a surprise! This museum although small scale had amazing works of art- Velasquez and many religious art. Im really glad we visited, nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The local art market outside the museum was an added plus. I would definitely recommend this museum. Cost... More

I went there last year, when there was a Sevillian Artists exposition going on.. It was GOURGEOUS!! <3 The museum itself is not huge, but it's very well curated, and the paints are very well-chosen! And besides, it's located on a little square, that is really cute and has thir amazing fair on sunday mornings

I have been in Sevilla several times, but until my last visit, I missed this museum, which in light of all the history of the city is overlooked. It should not be missed. It is a beautiful spacious art museum with great lighting of the paintings which reflect much of the history of the country. Paintings have been beaurifully restored... More

It's never a total waste going to any museum, there is always something to take away. But, given time constraints you can miss this one. The location is cool because it was an old ceramics factory and some of the kilns are still there. Otherwise, not much.
