The Sorolla Museum is dedicated entirely to the works of Spanish luminist painter Joaquín Sorolla. Some of Sorolla’s best works, including paintings and drawings, can be found here, in the house built between 1910 and 1911 and inhabited by Sorolla and his family. The museum preserves the style of an early twentieth century Madrid home and includes objects that Sorolla collected, such as his sculpture and ceramics collections, as well as photographs and correspondence he received throughout his life.
Visitors can explore every part of the house and the accompanying grounds, which include three gardens, designed by Sorolla in the Andalusian style. The house is made up of three floors: the ground floor, with its beautiful Andalusian patio and the room housing Sorolla’s drawing collection; the main floor, with Sorolla’s three studios, living room and dining room; and the second floor, reached via a large staircase and dedicated entirely to exhibiting Sorolla’s paintings.
The museum is open from 9:30AM – 8:00PM Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00AM – 3:00PM on Sunday and closed Monday. General price of entry is 2.40 euros or 1.20 euros for students, and entry is free on Sundays.
