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 converted hospital has some wonderful treasures. The story is well told of the once hospital for the poor. There are some notable artworks there too.

Highly recommend this lovely smallish museum. Housed in a beautiful building, the collection is largely religious with some 1400-1700 artifacts. Several El Greco paintings as well. Reasonably priced at 4 euros each.

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.
