“A must in Madrid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My family go to Museo Sorolla regularly. This time we could see a great exhibition about gardens on Sunday morning, when entrance is free. If you ever come to Madrid, after El Prado and Thyssen, try Museo Sorolla and discover a typical garden, a modernist house and the paintings of one of the best Spanish painters. You won't regret to pay a visit to this house-museum.

“For Sorolla lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I found the Sorolla Museum to be over-rated. It would be of great interest to lover's of Sorolla's art, wishing to gain an insight into his life, and where he lived, but for me, I enjoyed the other art museums far more than this one.

I liked that you could take photos (no flash) in this museum, and that the entry fee was relatively cheap (3 Euro, or free after 2pm Saturday). The tranquil gardens and setting were great, and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Just don't put this place in #2 spot in your itinerary of Madrid.

“My favourite Spanish artist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a really lovely gallery with many great works and a great layout. Its large enough to be satisfying and small enough to leave you wanting more!

“Not easy to find, but so worthy a experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The museum of the Spanish painter Sorolla is one of the little secrets that you have to look for in Madrid . The former house of this XIX- XX century painter is the best frame for his truly beautiful paintings . When you cross the threshold of the gate that separates the mundane and noisy street you enter into a completely different world . The little garden welcomes you like it did to the visitors of the painter, sometime back in early XX century . The paintings are beautifully displayed along the different house rooms,like the Sorolla study .
Get off the beaten track and look for this enchanted place , full of enchanted art

“A Must See...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is a hidden treasure. It was small and not too crowded. Very well done. See it if the opportunity presents itself. We chose this museum over the Prado and are very happy with our choice.
