“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is off the beaten tourist path, but it is one of the best places to go in Madrid. If you enjoy art, and need a break from the overwhelming Prado and Reina Sofia, Sorolla's house is beautiful and his paintings are unparalleled. When you go to this museum it seems as if you have stepped back into the time when Sorolla was painting and selling his art from his house. I would come here everyday if I could. If you have more than 2 days in Madrid, the Museo Sorolla should definitely be on your list of things to see!

“sorolla...the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

It´s not a very big museum. But if you don´t know Sorolla you should go...and if you know about him, you know this place it´s a "must be".

“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.

“Cozy, familiar, how rich people live in the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

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
