My daughter and I visited this small house museum the first day we arrived in Madrid. This is the house museum of the great Spainish Impressionist Joaquin Sorolla. The entrance garden was delightful with bubbling fountains , shady trees, and colorful paintings. It was a wonderful introduction to Madrid. It was small, easy to navigate, and a relaxing place to...

I not only enjoyed the self guide with the booklet they borrow the tourist but also after visiting the house and knowing more about the painter's life style I loved to seat on the garden listening of the cascades, water fountains and singing of the birds. The plants and flowers are the top of the cherry after discovering the paintings... More

I loved this little museum! The house is absolutely charming. It in itself is worthy of the visit. Sorolla's works are beautiful. I particularly love the bright, colourful paintings and the impressionistic style. After seeing the Prado, Thyssen and Rena Sofia I was pleasantly surprised with the lightness of Sorolla's subject matter. Also I loved Sorolla's ability to capture light... More

It is a nice house turned into a museum after the death of the paintor. It has a beautiful garden where you can sit and have a rest after your visit. I really liked the atmosphere and also enjoyed the paintings very much. If you have enough time in Madrid, it is worth to visit.

If you like Impressionism you will definitely love this museum. The house is lovely and the paints are great. Almost nobody talks about this museum of Madrid but I think is one of the best.

A real gem in central Madrid. A delightful place to visit, the museum is sited in Sorolla's house (donated to the city after his death) full of his art, furniture etc. Lovely garden to enjoy as well as the classic art work.

Make the effort to go to this museum if you like art. We found it by accident but it became our favorite visit. Sorolla is virtually unknown when you mention his name to people but he deserves more recognition. The museum consists of his house and garden and you can see the studio where he worked. There are many of... More

Sorolla's beautiful Spanish style home with gardens taken from the Alhambra sets off his gorgeous paintings and collections of old Spanish ceramics. The Museo Sorolla is considered to be the most complete and best preserved artist's houses in Europe. The heart of the museum is the artist's open and spacious studio filled with his works. This should be a no... More
