Sorolla occupies what was the artist's family home from 1911. The collections are displayed in all areas of the home open to the public, and the house has been preserved almost intact with the decoration it had during the artist’s lifetime. The collection of paintings therefore stands alongside the furniture and objects originally in the home. This is one of the best preserved artist’s homes in the whole of Europe

Access to the Museum is via the Garden, which surrounds the house on both sides.
At the bottom of the garden, after descending some steps, we have the Andalusian Courtyard where the ticket and information desks, shop, cloakroom and visitor toilets are located
Room I was used as a workshop and storeroom for canvases and frames, and had no decoration
Room II was Sorolla’s office and a sort of exhibition gallery where he would hang his recent works
Room III was Sorolla’s studio and is undoubtedly the most impressive and representative space in the museum
The main staircase (of wood, between the studios and the salon) leads the visitor to the Temporary Exhibition Rooms
The Salon was decorated by Sorolla with family portraits
The Area adjoining the dining room is a very cosy space with a window overlooking the first garden
