I was not familiar with Sorrola, but now I am a fan of his work. Great to walk through his home to see some of his best work. Our hotel was a short walk from this Museum. Anticipate 30-60 minutes here. Look for the free days/times to enter.

The first time I came to Madrid this museum was closed, so we didn't get to see it. The second time, we are were lucky! Even without the museum itself, the gardens are picture perfect. I loved walking through them, and pretty much everything in there is a picture perfect moment. The museum itself contains a great collection and background... More

Sorolla's house and gardens are lovingly maintained, his first floor studio and other first floor rooms largely unchanged from their use a century ago. Works of art, including family portraits line the walls; the second floor, has more of his art work including, in my opinion a few really outstanding, mesmerizing works. all in all a first rate experience.

Sorolla museum shows the paintings this impresionist artist from Valencia. The museum is located in Sorolla´s house in Madrid where you can se not only most of his paintings but oalso the place where he lived for years. For me, the most interesting paintings are those which reflect the natural light from Valencia region with many scenes about the Mediterranean... More

Amazingly, Sorrola was better known and well paid in his own lifetime! His home and studio are wonderful and give a great insight into his life. He was a friend of Sargent and his work was reminiscent, but unique. We spent quite a long time at this museum and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Sorolla museum is by far one of the best in its class. The collection of Sorolla's works displayed in the house where he used to live is absolutely fabulous. One can spend as little or as much time admiring his beautiful paintings and drawings. The small sculptures, furniture and tiles displayed in the various rooms enhances the whole experience.... More

For me this was much better than a large museum. It really gave us an insight into the life and times of Sorolla. The museum is set up in his house - surrounded by some genuine furniture articles and painting materials - and of course works of art. Beautiful house quite apart from the art inside. Excellent value to get... More

We went early Sunday and it was free! The garden was a tranquil place with just the sound of the fountains and inside, each room brought you closer to the family of Sorolla. One of the best art museums we have been to.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Sorolla Museum in Madrid. Beautiful works of art in a beautiful environment. The museum it is located in the actual house where Sorolla used to live and work. The furnishings, architecture and gardens are original. His paintings are beautiful and very well distributed and explained in his two story house. This museum is... More
