It is a tiny museum. It will take one hour to see everything. The art of Sorolla is different but I think there we can observe more art which connects to family of the artist. The dining area is the must, especially, ceilings.

I would have missed this lovely house and just adorable paintings by Sorolla if I hadn't checked the top attraction sites from tripadvisor. Lively garden with beautiful tiles, lovely room painted in red on which hangs vibrant paintings of women, boys and boats in the sea. It is small just enough size to admire:) Absolutely recommend this beautiful place.. and... More

This museum is really cute it houses some beautiful paintings also. I have been twice now once with my partner and once with a freind. Its close to where i live in chamberi within walking distance and its somewhere id definetly recommend to other freinds that visit here in madrid. Its not expensive and the building itself is lovely.

If you like places like historic houses, museums such as The Frick Collection, Musée Marmottan, or Giverny, this is the place to go while in Madrid. The place is small but there is so much to see. I took the guided tour (in Spanish which I master) and Eva our guide was so great. During the tour, you are able... More

This is housed in the last building in Madrid to be lived in by the painter Sorolla and it also contains his studio. The house and the collection of paintings and mementoes of the artist were donated in 1925 by his widow, Clotilde Gracia del Castillo. The museum holds many of his paintings, together with some of his family portraits.

Small - but absolutely superb. A must for any visit to Madrid. You can really feel the man behind the easel. Seeing where he worked and lived is a revelation.

Large for a house, small for a museum, this beautiful refuge has some of the artist's best paintings, and is informative regarding this, one of Spain's most important artists. The scale is wonderful for absorbing in an hour or two. Nice neighborhood. Not expensive to enter, and a sweet, though very small, bookshop.

絵画観賞が大好きで、ヨーロッパに行けば、美術館巡りをしています。 日本人は印象派を好みますが、ソローリャのバレンシアの海の太陽の輝き・・・ これほどまぶしさを感じる印象派の作品に出会ったのは初めてで、感動しました。 一度目は父との旅行で、父はソローリャに出会うまでは、 ヴァンダイクの肖像画が大の御気に入り。 古い作品ばかりを見ていたのですが、ソローリャをすっかり気に入って、 街中の書店を回って、ソローリャの画集を購入しました。 「もう一度マドリッドのソローリャ美術館に来る」と決めていたので、9月に87歳の父を連れて、再度妹との3人で訪れました。 こじんまりとして、団体客もいないので、落ち着いた雰囲気なのが好き。  以前来たときは、知らない人が多かった美術館ですが、いまや人気が高く、日本人も多く 訪れるという・・・以前より来訪者も多くなっていました。  作品の展示も増え、いつ見ても、太陽を肌で感じる作品に再び感激。 父も大満足で、素敵な庭で写真を撮って帰りました。 元気だった父が、その数ヶ月後に突然亡くなりました。 「ソローリャ美術館に一緒に行けて本当に良かった・・・・」とつくづく想っています。 アトリエが美術館なので、疲れずに展示を楽しめて、癒されます。 ブランド店の通りにも近いので、帰り道はゆっくり歩いてショッピングや美味しいワインや ビールを楽しめます。 Like many other Japanese people,favorite Impressionists.It was really impressed for the first time to have met the work of the Impressionists which felt dazzle as brightness ... this of the sea of Valencia .

This is a real gem and don't miss it. I am sorry to say I did not know about this artist and he is just amazing. A well known painter told us about it and we were so happy we went.

The artist's home and studio, combined with a wide range of his works, make this an enchanted space. It was recommended to us by friends, I happily am spreading the word on Trip Advisor!
