Overview
More
The National Museum of Sculpture is one of the most important European museums on this discipline because of the quality of its collection, ranging from the Middle Ages to the Baroque, with a predominance of polychrome wood works: Alonso Berruguete, Juan de Juni, Gregorio Fernández, Mena, Martínez Montañés, Alonso Cano, etc. The 19th century, is represented by the plaster cast collection coming from the old National Museum of Artistic Reproductions. The historic value of the four buildings which make up the museum along the street reinforces the worthy character of the visit. The main building, Saint Gregory´s College, is one of the most singular examples of the architecture in the 15th century, next to the Palace of the Marquis de Villena, the House of the Sun and the church of St. Benedict the Elder.

You need to be rather interested in sculptures. Impressive but a bit monotonous. About 50 versions of Jesus. Definitely worth a visit.

I loved everything about this museum. The entry ticket is cheap (3 euro) and the audio guide, which I highly recommend, is only an extra 2 euro. The sculptures are beautiful, the building is clean, and photography (sans flash) is permitted. I thought the security...More

Housed in a magnificent building, the exhibits will amaze even if you're not religious. One of the highlights of our stay.

In general, we like visiting churches not only for the religious aspect but to enjoy the artwork. In a church setting, though,it is sometimes hard to see the statues close enough to admire the skill of the artist ... and so this museum fills a...More
