It is hard to understand the exultant reviews. The museum is a pleasant way to spend an hour, but the pictures are pretty but underwhelming: some are impressive, but rather more look like the kind of thing done by the artistic friend of your mother, or something like that. If you manage to avoid the crowds it will be restful,... More

You must visit this wonderful place. The pictures are just spectacular and the house and gardens are a million miles away from urban Madrid. I cannot recommend this museum highly enough. Go - you will not be disappointed.

You must visit it for better understanding the Sorolla's lifestyle and family. The place alon is also interesting but the interiors and the collections are self-explanatory

This museum is really worth a visit as it is the beautiful family home of Sorolla that has been kept as it was when he and his family lived there including his studio and many wonderful paintings. The gardens are very peaceful and a welcome respite from the busy streets.

I hadn't heard of Sorolla before today and my travelling companions urged me to visit this museum with them. I'm glad I did: there is a comprehensive exhibition of Sorolla's development and achievements as an artist. His impressionist / realist style is intriguing especially as he uses the beach and the spontaneous outdoor scenes as his subjects.

Never knew much about Sorolla but we got an excellent view into his life and family. We are thankful his family left his home and paintings as a museum for us to learn and enjoy so many years later. Wonderful painter.

First discovered Sorolla in an exhibition in Seville. Loved it. Have visited Museo twice since. Have several prints on our walls in Australia.

This beautifully presented and truly intimate museum devoted totally to Sorolla and his family provided a welcome contrast to the grander but impersonal brilliance of the Prado and Thyssen galleries. It's well worth the short trip out from the city centre to this house set in pretty the gardens recognisable from several of his paintings. The house is crammed with... More

It is located in a nice area that is covere by the Madrid city tours bus (ruta 2). A private house where the artist lived and worked gives a more intense feeling than a general museum

I loved seeing the paintings in the house where Sorolla lived - reminded me of seeing the impressionist paintings in the Barnes before they moved the collection. Gardens outside are lovely. But of course, best of all are his wonderful paintings where his love for his family is so evident.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
