If you happen to be visiting Madrid on either November the 16th or December the 6th the entrance to the fascinating Sorolla museum is free. It is also free every Saturday afternoon after 2 p.m. and every Sunday.

The Sorolla happens to be my favourite art museum in Madrid. 

The Sorolla museum is not just a collection of Joaquin Sorolla’s works, it is a museum of his life.  As the museum is the house where he and his family lived in Madrid from 1911 until his death, it has a collection of sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, furniture and gives insight into his life with his family.

Even if you go during the week, the entrance fee is very reasonable—only 3 Euros.

Where:  C/ General Martínez Campos, 37

Closest Metro:  Iglesia (L1), Ruben Dario (Line 5) or Gregorio Marañón (lines 7 and 10)
