Sorolla is an excellent artist and the museum is in the house where he lived and his works are beautifully set out. As it is a small museum, it only takes a couple of hours to see all his marvellous works of art and it is a pleasure to sit in the small garden and and enjoy the peaceful surroundings,I... More

The Sorolla Musuem is a small, cosy and very personal museum in Madrid. It´s located in Sorollas former family house which gives the museum a very near and authentic feeling. There were no long lines as in the other Madrid museums, and very little people there. We could walk around the house, as we were visiting Mr. Sorolla. I can... More

I loved the Prado but this museum is definitely worth finding. It is Sorello's home and much remains the same. The gardens surrounding the house are serene and his paintings are light, colorful and joyful.

This charming gallery evokes the life and times of Joaquin Sorolla and his family. The canvases displayed are beautifully shown and do homage to a painter I must admit I didn't know before coming to Madrid but "The Spanish Impressionist" is an artist I shall now be looking out for in other galleries around the world , especially next time...

Nice museum in the center of Madrid. It is located in the painter?s house, which is itself worth a visit. There is a number of paintings on display, some of them outstanding

Madrid is full of surprises, and the paintings of Sorolla are one of the most beautiful. His work is featured in a couple of rooms at the Prado, and throughout this lovely home. It is a real treat to be able to see the house itself, a gracious, elegant small mansion in one of Madrid's upscale residential neighborhoods. It is... More

Sorolla' s house is now a museum and has a fantastic display of his paintings . It was our second visit and sure it won't be the last. Admission is only 3 euros and well worth it. You can also hire an audio guide which gives you a great insight to his life and paintings. The only downside is that... More

Having lived in Valencia for several months we were keen to see a proper selection of Sorolllas as they only appear there in dribs and drabs (Sorolla was Valencian but moved to Madrid when he made it big!). This place was his house, and much of it including his studio is pretty much intact. You get a real sense of... More

I hadn't heard of Sorolla and discovering this museum was therefore fascinating. The garden is one of the loveliest small gardens in any capital, part Islamic, part classical, part medieval. I love his collections and the main rooms.He is strongest as a portrait painter as the works by him at the Prado show and there are some fine portraits here... More
