“See the house of Sorolla the way it was”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Beautiful house, with old decor, very Spanish, very true. Outplaced but interesting. Don't go out of your way to get there, though.

“My Favorite Museum in Madrid: Impressionist Art Without the Crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

After you've "done" the Prado with its overwhelming collection and swarms of visitors, go to the Sorolla Museum. It's in the artist's former house/studio and is full of his lovely, accessible paintings. The well-maintained gardens were the artist's pride and joy and featured in many of his works, so they deserve some time as well. I also enjoy the furnishings. The entrance price is very reasonable, something like 3 Euros. This place is a true find that I first visited in 1985 and have been recommending to friends ever since. Reachable by Metro: Rubén Darío on the green line; just walk up La Castellana to General Martinez Campos and turn left. It's a 15 minute walk at most. Tip: After my most recent visit, I had a very enjoyable lunch right across the street at Al Alba de Madrid.

“Thoroughly Enjoyed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Highly recommend visiting this museum. I loved seeing his artwork displayed in his own home. So much more meaning than rushing through an enormous art museum where it is difficult to do justice to the artist or his work.

“museum and house in one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Not only the museum of a famous painter, this place has also a very nice garden and you can feel how the life of the Sorolla familla must have been while living here. When I visited on my own, I took an audioguide and I spent a long time wandering through the museum without watching my watch. I can recommend this to everyone, especially when entrance is free, for instance on saturday afternoons.
