We adore art museums so this was a must see for us. They have the old masters and lots of them, beautifully displayed. Like many large museums, it was a little difficult to maneuver through the place - lots and lots of rooms and it's...More

I am not a fan of classical art. But I felt I needed to see the Prado if I were in Madrid. It is a repository of western civilization and honestly not to be missed. Everything is housed in a classical building near Retiro Park...More

Loved the tour through the museum, and the unbelievable artwork. World class! I don't have any photos of the Prado, since you can't take any. The variety of works was amazing.

Probably the best museum in Madrid and among the best in the world. Prado offers an amazing collection of fine arts from different ages. It is a must visit attraction and deserves not less than 3 hours.

This is a huge one. If you plan to visit make sure you spend atleast half a day to soak the sheer magnificence of this place. Get a route map from any of the information centers and have a great time!

This is a great museum, but all in all a let down. Biggest disappointment, there were very few places to sit, and really have a chance to absorb the art.

The regular entrance fee is €15.00 (or free from 6 pm to 8 pm). One can also pay €7.50 and skip the super long line of free visitors plus you get to see the special exhibit. But 2 hours is not enough! So, if you...More

Paseo del Prado
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

Two hours is really really short. You will have to choose what you want to see. We spent probably 6 hours there over 2 days and didn't even finish the Spanish collection.

This may be an option only if the tickets were bought through the website. Will not be easy but can be achieved through the contact/customer care option.
