Was worth the walk to see this museum and learn about El Greco. Its very quiet inside but a wonderful atmosphere for those wanting to soak it all up. Its a great place to get out of the sun as well.

Well curated, interesting museum. A cool retreat from the heat of the town. Inexpensive to visit and well worth it.

The El Greco paintings are good. And don't miss the patio. It is a very nice place to relax after walking the Toledo streets....

Big spaces. The Grecos are worth the trip. They also have some temp exhibits upstairs. It is free on Wednesday evenings so we went back just to see the Grecos again.

This building was an old hospital but really it was a glimpse of other pieces of information gathered in more interesting ways in other parts of Toledo. Not worth the time or effort as you can not even access all of the old building which...More

I started out confused about what was in this museum. The main area has a lot of art, much of it religious. I did not realize that it had such well known paintings. The cloister was lovely though the archeological bits and pieces were not...More

This building has expansive ground floor exhibits and vaulted ceilings. We did have to use stairs to visit some secondary displays but the good stuff was at ground level.
