The Seville Museum of Fine Arts, also known as Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla, is a museum dedicated to showcasing the rich history and artistic heritage of Seville.

Whilst the museum isn’t known as one of Seville’s most popular attractions, I would class it as a hidden gem, and it’s well worth a visit if you’re in Seville for a few days.

Visiting Seville Museum of Fine Arts

Entry to the museum is very reasonable, and the best value I know for a museum in Seville. It costs just €1.50, and that includes full access to all rooms and temporary exhibits.

Please not that they only take cash for the 1.50 euro entry fee and as of 2024 you cannot pay on card.

There isn’t a great deal of information on display for the various artworks, with often just the year and name of the artist. So, if you are keen to learn more, I would recommend getting a guided tour – these can be purchased at the museum’s ticket office or pre-booked online.

The inner gardens and courtyard are very peaceful and a great way to stay away from the heat in the summer. The museum is rarely busy, and having been on multiple days of the week, I always find it relaxing. A true hidden gem in Seville.

Top Tip: Try and visit the museum on a Sunday morning. In the beautiful courtyard local artists come to display their work, and you can pick up some beautiful pieces for reasonable prices.

What to See in The Seville Museum of Fine Arts

Museo de Bellas Artes has a very strong focus on artwork that is local to Seville and the region of Andalusia. The majority of displays are by artists from Seville, or feature work that represents the local traditions and culture.

The museum is widely know for its collection of Spanish Baroque paintings, having one of the largest in Spain. These include pieces by artists such as Murillo, Velázquez, and Zurbarán.

I would say the works of Murillo are the museum’s biggest draw, and represented heavily throughout, with the artist being one of the most famous painters born in Seville.

In addition to the permanent collection, the museum frequently hosts temporary exhibitions.For more information on the latest exhibits, you can visit the official website.

History of Seville Museum of Fine Arts

The museum was initially established as the ‘Museum of Paintings‘ in 1835, and opened officially to the public in 1841.

To start with, the collection was made up of works from confiscated convents and monasteries during the Spanish confiscation period and grew over time thanks to personal donations to the museum.

Today, the museum hosts art exhibitions and educational programs (alongside its permanent collection) and is thought of as one of the leading cultural landmarks in, not just Seville, but the whole of Spain.
