Owner description: The Sorolla Museum preserves the original atmosphere of both home and study of the painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923). It houses the richest collection of his works, colourful paintings irradiating light and vitality. It is one of the more complete and best preserved artist homes remaining in Europe. The garden, also designed by himself, is a beautiful oasis in the city.

It is a well preserved museum which was earlier home to the famous painter Joaquin Sorolla. The building is well maintained and located away from the busy streets of Spain. You only have to pay an entry fee of 3€ which for such a pleasure was worth it (the entry is free on Sundays). The museum has housed some of the best collections of paintings by the Senor Sorolla especially the works on sea and water bodies. They all were just beautiful. The house has a beautiful garden which offers scenic view. There were audio guides which helped a lot in understanding the life of the great artist. The place is however privately funded. Overall the place has its unique charm. It is a must visit for true art lovers.

Just a large house on a busy street , but an oasis inside. To see Sorolla's work, altogether in one place, his place, is quite a delight.

This is a small museum in the painter's former home. It can be visited in around 1 hour. There are some excellent paintings especially some of the seaside scenes. The garden is very relaxing and there were some artists painting there during my visit. It is a nice alternative to the three large art museums in Madrid and is well worth a visit.

Go on a Sunday afternoon when the museum is free. It was fun to wander around in the artist's home and imagine what it would have been like to visit 100 years ago. The upper levels had more of a museum atmosphere. Lovely little garden too, which I believe can be visited without a ticket.

We visited the sorollo museum on a Sunday morning. Entry 2€ with audio and a lovely crowd free experience. The house is charming and the gardens very peaceful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit.
