This is supossed to be a replica of El Greco's home, but the most interesting things are the paintings. Incredible art by El Greco and his contemporaries. It isn't a normal museum with a ton of paintings, but there is a significant amount of paintings. It is right next to the Sephardic Jew Church museum and you can buy both... More

Very atmospheric museum with much more than just the El Greco art work. The kitchen reconstruction was very interesting and the whole ambiance of being in the Artists house made it work for us.

Ok - so this isn't Greco's original house - they fess up to that inside the building, on some of the write ups. However it's well worth a visit! The house is how he would have lived, it's well done, some rooms like the kitchen are as they might have been used. There are lots of pieces of artwork which... More

At first we were disappointed that this never was the actual home of Domenico Theotokopoulos, alias El Greco in Toledo, and that visitors only learn this after they entered the museum. I should have done my homework I guess. The visit however turned out to be a worthy experience, because the museum is little but very well done, both in... More

El Greco (1541-1614) arrived in Toledo 1575 hoping to get Royal Comissions. But the king did not like his art. But he got many comissions, portraits from other important persons, and partly from the church. Eventually he had a large atelier with handymen, painters, sculptures, engravers. He was partly forgotten until the 19th century. And in 1910 Marquis Vega-Inclán built... More

No trip to Toledo would be complete without a trip to El Greco house. Packed with paintings, the 12 Apostles stand out, and offering a fascinating view of the painter's development. Also some of el Greco's school are distinguished inclusions. The building and courtyard are also beautiful, and there are cafes nearby.

We were in a bit of a hurry as we needed to catch a bus - said that, we did had some time to have a look around Museo del Greco. This house is very cool with a lot of different level of art & paintings plus the gardens also looks nice. We arrived after 16:00 which we didn't know... More

The museum in within a old house thats been designed to look like the house Greco lived in. It houses some paintings by the artist Including his depiction of the 12 apostles.... From the information about Greco provided it mentions he fell out of favor after he died but in the 19th century was celebrated again as a great artist!... More

We went on a Saturday so didn't have to pay - but it would have been worth the money. A lot to see around the museum and very friendly staff
