We visited here on a very hot Madrid early evening. The Museum was free on this Sunday. The garden was a refuge on this hot day, with tinkling water fountains, and lovely Andulasian tiles and sculpture. We did not know much about the style of Sorollo's Art before, but we were filled with delight at his beautiful beach scenes, reminiscent... More

Knew nothing about Sorolla as an artist until I visited this museum, He does great work depicting sunlight, wind, boats.

Sorolla always came home to Madrid ... with really great "stuff" ... the Tiffany chandelier in the lounge, the sterling and coral rosary, the hundreds of holy water fonts I've always enjoyed his art, and the museum gave me a sense of artist, and family man ... there's also a sweet garden with lemonade/cupcakes on sale

I can recommend this charming old home as a fine art museum. Sorolla and his family lived here for years. He worked in the home's studio. I was struck by his love for his family as he included his children in many, many paintings.

Little did I know of Sorolla before visiting his house, which has been converted into a museum. A very intimate space, where you see the studio where he painted, and can view the permanent and temporary exhibitions. I love small scale museums - this museum reminded me of a smaller scale of the Marmottan in Paris (which houses many works... More

I loved this museum. Housed in Joaquin Sorolla's own family home, the private collection is the largest single exhibition of his works in the world now. With a lot of family portraits, seascapes, and gorgeous examples of his ability to paint light so well, this is well worth a visit, at only 3 Euros! The house alone is gorgeous and... More

We visit on a Sunday morning, no audio guide available. I felt we missed a lot of details, and although the house is nice to visit (and makes the link with Sorolla's work), some additional explanation would be helpful.

Little gem! The museum is free on Sunday. It is small, so you don't need to spend hours. It was very sweet to see where the artist lived and worked.

I have visited this museum quite a few times. It is the house of Sorolla, transformed into a museum. I Love the beautiful aquarela paintings! A place not to miss in Madrid!

This is an amazing museum. The work of Sorolla is in a different class. Definitely worth visiting. Beautiful garden to sit in.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
