The museum offers a very interesting collection of must see paintings.
We loved Goya and Velasquez but also enjoyed the sculpture bit.
Unfortunately the museum is free only at the end of the day, so you need to queue for an hour to get in...More
One would assume that a museum of the caliber of the Prado would have far better signage telling you the exits and other directions clearly. Not only us, but we saw several people going about in loops trying to find their way. Of course the...More
As art is not a passion of mine, I accompanied my wife with low expectations that I would enjoy the experience. However we were fortunate enough to encounter a certified guide who offered to show us the main attractions for €50. Initially sceptical, I agreed....More
Anyone who visits Madrid, should put this at the top of their list. My wife and I took a guided tour and it was well worth it. The amount of history is unbelievable. The paintings were breathtaking. We continued to be surprised by the variations...More

This is a museum I had long wished to visit and what a joy it was. We were there for about eight hours, far longer than anticipated. The audio guide helped us to appreciate so much more detail than we would have experienced alone. The...More
The Prado museum is a must see with an extensive collection of especially religious related paintings from the early centuries and the Dutch school. More remarkable and the crown of the collection is the paintings of Goya and some of Velazquez which also appeal to...More
We only had a couple of hours to see the Prado and we enjoyed our experience. The information adjacent to the art work provided a great deal of information that was not obvious when we first looked at the piece. While it was a great...More
Velasquez, Goya, El Greco, the Spanish artists. They say you need 6 hours to see everything, but I think it might take longer. See your favorites on your first visit, then if you have time, come back on another day.
Great collection of classic art from the European masters from the renaissance era. Suggest using the audio guides which provide a lot of background information on key paintings and the artists. Too much to see in one day, so plan for at least two.
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
