“Toledo Treasure”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Located on the fringe of a pretty park, inside and out, Museo el Greco is a very nice place to visit to get an idea of El Greco's history, his living and development of style in painting. You see some of his earlier works and those of other Spanish painters.

“El Greco”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

You can see cathedrals and museums in every city, but El Greco is unique in Toledo. The house and the museum is a very special place to visit. Also more exhibitions if you have time.

“Beautiful art by El Greco and his assistances”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We really liked the museum. We followed a group and the guide's explanations were really interesting, so if you can take a guide its nice. most of the work is not by El Greco himself but by his assistances in his workshop, but it is very similar and beautiful.

“Interesting museum set-up”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

The normal entry fee is only 3.50 euro but if you are a poor pensioner the entry is free (need to provide proof to be over 65). The house was not actually the home of 'El Greco', but he lived in this neighbourhood and in similar dwellings. Anyhow the place is well restored and set-up so as to represent the way El Greco must have lived. The gardens are nicely kept. A good number of El Greco works available and pictures can be taken (without flash).
Recommend you put this on your list of places to see in Toledo. Since it is somewhat out of the center we ended our visits for the day here. There is a taxi stand just next to the museum for an easy ride back to your hotel.

“If time is limited, make this a 'must see'”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The cost was only 3.50euro in May 2014. This was well worth the money, and despite the fact that the house isn't actually the home of 'El Greco', it's a restored 16th century home full of charm, and typical of the period, and how he would have lived. The gardens are beautiful, the cellars just amazing, and the numerous works of art hanging on the walls, with information in both Spanish and English, this was for me the best place of the whole trip. It does, of course depend on your personal taste, so take the time to look at the pictures from other travellers. My must sees would be this and the Cathedral. Also Santo Tome (which is pricey (2.50euro - and no photo's allowed) when you consider that all you are doing is walking into the entrance to look at a work of art), but WOW, what a work of are. I would give the Hospital a miss - complete waste of time and effort, especially when compared to this little beauty. Pictures are allowed of all the art works, but no flash - which is actually quite amazing for a museum.
