We started our day trip to Toledo with a stop at this museum, and entry was free for all visitors at the moment. The museum is nicely laid out with quite a few El Grecos on display. Interestingly, there was a temporary exhibition of paintings by Jorge Galindo & Pedro Almodóvar on the top floor of museum with a video showing how they painted some of the works. We were also treated to some live music by a choir practising in the courtyard.

The building itself is the real stunner. It forms part of an elegant plaza. There is modern and traditional art. The trad stuff is very good indeed. There is also a windmill exhibition at the moment. We were admitted free as pensioners at the behest of friendly staff who encouraged us to leave our bags safely secured. A most enjoyable visit.

This is a spacious and well set-out museum, once a hospital. Set out in the form of a large cross, each section takes you through a period of Spanish history, with associated art-works, paintings, sculpures, etc. It has several paintings by El Greco / the El Greco school. You can also visit the central patio and there is a permanent exhibition upstairs of pottery from the Iberian pensinsula. |t's a bit hard to find, down the steps and turn left past the statue at Zocodover Sq. The building itslf is beautiful.

A nice size museum with many El Greco paintings. It was recommended over the other museum. The pictures are beautiful and it is not crowded so you can really look at them.

Yet another historic and beautiful building. The ceiling inside is amazing. Many of the contents are either by El Greco or in his style and I am not a fan. However there are other items of interest and the building and contents are well worth a visit.

Before visiting this museum I had no idea how beautiful it is and what a rich, varied collection it contains. Absolutely worth the time to visit, I spent a little over two hours here and loved it. The history of Toledo and of Spain is beautifully represented here in both art and craft. Don't miss it!

Former hospital, now an excellent museum with superior explanations, (in both Spanish and English) what the visitor is viewing. One of the better sites in Spain in terms of educating the visitor. Highly recommend.

The artworks and displays in the museum were amazing. I was not expecting to see so many El Greco paintings. Everything was in Spanish & English and each painting and artifact had great descriptions. A lot of history in this museum because of this and the wonderful descriptions we spent more than 2 hours here reading and taking it all in. Upstairs you will find some modern art and a beautiful collection of tiles and ceramics from 1492. I highly recommend this museum and allow enough time to take it all in!

Displays local ceramics and great works of art. There are different sections all of which are worth seeing. The cloisters and staircases are worth seeing.

This is a really beautiful building both inside and out. Last time we visited the main gallery was closed so it was a delight to see this magnificent area with its El Greco paintings on this visit. There are lots of lovely paintings and religious articles. From the cloisters there is a beautiful staircase leading upstairs to further exhibition areas. There is also another staircase that leads to rooms that look down into the main gallery. Entrance is free to the over 65s.
