A truly amazing collection. Way too much to take in with a single visit. If you're a teacher or student, don't forget to bring your ID, as this will get you in for free.

I'll preface this review with a honest admission that I'm not particuarly an "art" aficionado. There are many beautiful works to look at. I'm no art critic, but I enjoyed seeing art by big names such as Picasso. There's also an interesting version of the Mona Lisa. The original/real one is in the Louvre in Paris, but this one was...

Just for the Goya collection. The rest is also awesome with many other collections of Spanish painters. Some paintings of El Greco are also very interesting. Aone of the best museums in the world.

In my personal opinion, "El Prado" is the best museum when it comes to visual art, in specific to paintings. It has a beautiful gallery that counts with master pieces of thy dress of painters that are consider to be fathers of styles and, for me (as well), many of the greatest painters ever. If you want a cultural visit... More

A great collection of art especially Spanish, El Greco, Velasquez and Goya etc. Well worth a visit. We were there most of a day, so its possible to spend many hours there if you have the stamina. Lunch in the restaurant was quite good too. Personally we liked the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia better.

Doesn't look too big of a museum from the outside but has many corridors. You ca fing it in the middle of Madrid close to many other sites to see.

World class museum with so much to see, give yourself at least three or four hours. This museum has a vast collection of Spanish artists, such as Goya and Velasquez, but also many paintings of other European masters. A must-see for any art lover. The cafe is pretty good too.

Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed the modern, airy feel of the Prado with its unprecedented collection of Spanish and European art -- easily on par with the loveliest museums worldwide. We spent about half a day casually wandering through the halls, which allowed us to see the lion's share of the art. However, you could easily tour a whole day... More

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
