“El Greco Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

A beautiful house and setting and everything wonderfully presented but we were a little disappointed that there were not more examples of El Greco´s work.

“Unique museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Ok so it really wasn't where el Greco lived but it was a replica built across the street. Many of the paintings are by people who copies his style. They do have a 13 portrait collection of el greco's portraits of the apostles. Free on Sundays. All in all very interesting and informative and beautiful in its own right.

“Lovely introduction to El Greco and to 16th century Toledo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Returning after 35 years we found a much enhanced and most enjoyable museum combining many of El Greco's paintings withe good insights into his life and the life of his times, based on a lovingly restored old house and garden.We were there just after opening time and had gthe place to ourselves, which was lovely, but we didn't find the layout very easy. Try every door! As EU over-65s this one was free for us.

“Astonishingly interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

I don't normally like art galleries but this was fascinating with its insight into El Greco's life. The layout of the building was interesting, too, and showed a glimpse of how life used to be a few hundred years ago.

“This is a surprising and lovely museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Toledo was a very easy train ride from Madrid and my teenagers and I loved what we saw there. This museum will surprise and delight visitors, and it's open a little later than other things.
