Museo Sorolla reviews
We got tickets having seen the London Sorolla exhibition and just loved his work. Definitely worth a visit to both the museum and the gardens. Not overly busy and very beautiful.

Lovely garden and artifacts in the house. It's worth the visit. Though on a busy street (especially during the lunch hour), the gardens and house exude a calm energy. Spend about an hour here relaxing

One of the best museums I have EVER visited. First of all it is in his home, turned museum. The furniture and items are mostly his. Many of the rooms are staged exactly as it was when Sorolla and his family lived there. His art is displayed in a very appealing way. Easy to view and enjoy. EACH piece is described in an interesting and informative way. I like his artwork so I am biased, but his works are really interesting. He painted his personal life, family and friends, in a completely different style than his other works. If you visit Madrid don't miss this museum.
My favorite painter so I’m biased. But it’s so special to be in his house and studio and see a wide range of his work. I don’t think there are too many other experiences like this in the world where you can experience a masters life from the past so intimately. The gardens are beautiful and the staff that work there are also super nice.
