“Beautiful little gem of a museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Seeing such a large number of Sorolla's beautiful works in an intimate setting (a small mansion that was his home) is a real treat and lovely thing to do in Madrid after you've done all the other big museums. Easy to get to in just a few metro stops from the historic center of Madrid.

Paintings are brilliant, but the house is amazing, to feel the atmosphere, the way of living, take a guided tour - if you visit Madrid go there

“Better than in New York. Sorolla in Madrid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I liked this better than the huge Sorolla paintings displayed in the American Hispanic Society. Anyway, Sorolla loved his wife, daughters and son and you feel it in the paintings he made of them. The House is beautiful too.

“Excellent collection. Beautiful Museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I was reccomend by a friend to visit it and was more than I expect. Beautiful collection and the house is nice. I reccomend it as a visit if you want to do something out of the regular Tour or you love Sorolla as I do!

“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.
