A wonderful collection of paintings; excellent introduction to his work and life. So glad I went. Set in a house believed to be his or one he stayed in, the museum itself is a great space with a good collection.

I knew nothing about El Greco, but I went here because it was close to the synagogue and there was a joint ticket available. I was pleasantly surprised - the museum is well-laid out (though occasionally confusing to figure out which door you're supposed to go through), with good landscaping on the outdoor parts. I watched the video, which was... More

If you are a fan of El Greco, or even if you are not, this shop/house museum will capture your senses and send you back in time. Filled with El Greco paintings, the crown jewel is of course "El Apostolado," paintings and depictions of all the disciples. The museum was allegedly El Greco's shop. It is small and well preserved... More

This museum was well taken care of and visually appealing. I do wish it would have had a bit more information provided about el Greco in non-video format. The paintings were great, but I was hoping to see a few more of his own paintings. Definitely worth the time to see this museum!

The museum is billed as El Greco´s house, but is actually a representation of what it is thought his house would have looked like. It has been well done and is a bit of an oasis on a hot day in Toledo. There is a good AV introduction to El Greco which is well worth watching. There is a good... More

The museum is small and easy to get around. It is a replica of the hose El Greco was supposed to live in. It has some original work but also many paintings by others in his studio. We would have thought it to tell more about the life and times of El Greco

We went in to the museum not knowing too much about del Grecko and came out with a greater appreciation for his works. The museum only houses a few del Grecko paintings but there is also a lot of contemporary art. Well worth a visit, this is one of the highlites of our day in Toledo

El Greco's art work becomes even more impressive when you learn about his style which really was way ahead of his time. My wife is an artist and really liked the videos that explains his work. And Saturday evenings are free!!
