This is the complete Sorolla collection in the man's estate. While a small museum the beauty of the work and the mansion and gardens make it a worth while visit. It only takes an hour or two to visit and the price is very reasonable 3 euro. Sorolla's work carries a distinct beauty and his layers of white on white... More

The cutest museum in Madrid. It is the house where Sorolla lived, it was transformed into a museum and displays the artist's work and original furniture and art collections.

After a disappointing visit to the Reina Sofia Museum, with cubes and modern art, I wanted basic good paintings. A short taxi trip and 3 euros entrance fee, brought us to a wonderful small and tasteful museum. His own home with his ceramic collection and great paintings mainly of his family, left me with a smile as I was happy... More

What a wonderful museum. It's off the beaten path so you have to plan the visit, but it's well worth the extra walk/metro ride and it's rarely too crowded. A fantastic collection of paintings by Joaquin Sorolla in his home and workplace. There are some free days but even on other days it's very well worth the small entrance fee.... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours in a home owned by one of Spain s most renowned artists! it is furnished as if the family was there, and has a lovely garden. The painting museum within the house shows many works by the artist. i would highly recommend visiting this house museum during a stay in Madrid.

If you have been to many galleries, and might be getting a bit jaded or even bored of endless rooms of paintings as I was, go here. You get to wander through the artists house, and sit in his garden. And stand in his studio and feel the light he painted in. It is also a sweet sanctuary and break... More

What a pretty little museum. A wonderful oasis in the city. A water garden where you can sit in the cool. The museum itself is stuffed full of his art and is so pretty . It really is a wonderful place to visit after you have done all those larger museums. A bit of a long walk from the city... More

Great museum, the gardens are small but coazy with lots of places to seat and enjoy the peacefulness of the garden. Its free for students if your country is on the list they have so ask and bring your student ID if not its still only 3 euros. Its small but the paintings are eye candy. Easy to go through... More

I was introduced to Sorolla on this trip and went to this museum in his own house, what a gem. The garden is a haven.

Not a usual stop. Sorolla was a successful Madrid artist and this was his home. Get a glimpse of how he lived.
