  • It is a wonder, not only the paintings that are already extraordinary, but also the house, every detail, the gardens, the pool, the fountain. When the tour was guided we did not miss detail, very good guide.

  • Located in what was the house-studio of the great painter in his last stage; the museum is small but AWESOME. It is one of those places where on a single visit you do not have time to appreciate all its content, and where you do not regret returning. Everything inside is very well preserved, the furniture, personal objects, type watches, antique ceramics, books... and what to say about his paintings!. The paintings are great since the museum say are more than 1200, which vary from placement in the halls because the museum organizes its own temporary exhibitions and lends to other institutions, without going any further this year collaborates with the National Gallery, London and the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin. If when you enter the room I you feel overwhelmed by that marvel of paintings, when you enter what was his studio (room III) you are petrified by such a huge amount of paintings. A real marvel. Until september 29we can enjoy in the attic of the palace a temporary exhibition 'Hunting impressions' composed of a total of 227 oils of the painter in small format on board, cardboard or other materials. It's spectacular. The gardens of the palace are dreamy, to stay a little while there fantasizing with the life of this great painter. Indoors, the use of video as well as photographs with flash or tripod are prohibited. You can choose to buy the ticket (a real bargain 3o), for a guided tour or rent an audio guide. It is an ideal museum to visit with children, they have audio guides for families, for 2.5 euros that makes children do not miss anything and make the visit more enjoyable. To say that entry is free for children under 18 and over 65, pensioners, people in legal unemployment, teachers... there is no excuse not to visit!

  • A wonderful place. Not a mainstream-known painter but very famous in Spain. The layout of the exposition is set like a house just like the painter lived it. You can't do nothing other than appreciate the delicate beauty that sorrounds you. It takes an hour for the visit if you're on a rush, up to two if you want to taste everything.
  • Beautiful quiet museum, one of the most underrated in Madrid. Just €3 to see the artist's incredible work and his wonderful home/studio/gardens. Guided tours available, and written guides in several languages also available in each room.
