Madrid Prado Museum Entrance Ticket

    What to Expect
    Visit: Prado National Museum, Calle Ruiz de Alarcon 23, 28014 Madrid Spain

    The Prado (Museo Nacional del Prado) and its collections of paintings, drawings, and sculpture reflect the history of Spain, whose waning role on the international stage in the 19th century reduced its appeal for foreign artists. Spanish artists now trained and worked abroad: in Rome at the beginning of the century, and from the mid-century onward in Paris, the new world capital of art. The nationalistic fervor that characterized the entire century, reflected by Spanish artists in canvases celebrating the country’s peoples, landscapes and history, and the Disentailment of ecclesiastical possessions which, when they entered the Prado from the Museo de la Trinidad, significantly enriched the original holdings from the Royal Collection, are all reflected in the Museum’s collections, which terminate in 1881, the year of Picasso’s birth.

    While primarily oriented towards painting, these collections also include outstanding examples of sculpture, the decorative arts and works on paper, from antiquity to the 19th century.

    The line for tickets was really long so glad we purchased the skip line tickets. The audio tour was great with several tour options.

    Not sure what we were expecting but we were underwhelmed with the Prado. We got the audio guide (which I recommend) and chose the 2-hour option. However, the rooms are laid out in a maze and it’s hard to follow the route to see the...More

    The lines tend to be long. Buy in advance if you can, and the line for those who have pre-purchased, will be shorter
