This museum is a bit off the usual tourist routes in Madrid but worth heading west to find it. The museum showcases a range of work by the artist Sorolla in what was his family home and studio. The house is set in a delightful andalucian style garden which is a lovely oasis of calm away from the Madrid traffic.... More

The city of Madrid is famous for some wonderful museums but this small art gallery is off the beaten track of the art circuit both literally & figuratively which made it more interesting for me specially after visiting the more famous Prado Museum & seeing some of his paintings.The Museum of this Spain`s famous impressionistic artist is located in the...

This is a lovely small museum in Sorolla,s home. If you don't think you know his work I am sure you will. It is a very personal place with a lot of the art showing his own family. Well worth the walk from the centre of Madrid, and to me much more enjoyable than the larger art galleries. If you... More

Really nice museum, definitely recommended. Did not know the artist until saw one of his paintings at the Prado, really very nice, and the house itself is also fascinating, the garden round it beautiful. Great place to visit for a couple of hours,

I am embarrassed to admit to not knowing about Sorolla until coming to Madrid where his works are in many of the major Galleries as well as on souvenir stalls on the streets. This museum is a joy. In August '14 it cost just €3 to go in and you can enjoy the delightful garden and fountains for free, but... More

Not as popular as the large museums but equally beautiful, if you have time for a visit you won't regret it.

The home of the artist is now a museum with many of his best works. It provides insight into his working environment, taste in decor and the world he inhabited in pre-civil war Madrid. The house itself is worth the visit. But the main works are an epitome of Sorolla's work.

Worth the journey outside of the Madrid centre to visit this brilliant artists residence. Superbly laid out interior and lovely peaceful gardens. Visit the Prado to see more of Sorolla's works. Free on a Sunday afternoon. Would have paid without question. Make the effort you wont regret it.

Sorolla's house and gardens, were kept extremely well. You'll be able to see some of his best paintings and the wonderful art collection of the family. They also have temporary exhibitions on the second floor. Very helpful and friendly staff. If you only have time for one museum in Madrid, this is definetely it!!!
