prado is much nicer than reina sofia museum and it much easier to visit the whole museum. especially the paintings that you see directly coming from goya enterance are excellent.

I prefer more modern artists, but if you like the classic ones this is a great museum for you! Great location and layout.

If your taste is for old Masters and Portraits of the nobility then this is the place to go. I'm more of 19th/20th Century fan.

Excellent temporary exhibits. Lots of religious art. Choose what you want to see. You could wander all day here.

We booked the Triangle of Art and Susana Berdugo did an excellent tour for us with Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia. We learned about art, history, politics, culture. The works! We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Its a good art museum, but you have to love art, as that is all there is. So for me, it was ok, but I'm not an art lover. Again, a huge line to get in.

What can one say? One of the best art galleries in the world. Could do with a few sofas and upholstered benches like Vienna though. We focussed on Goya and Velasquez which was probably enough for one day with a few detours for Durer and Raphael. Then you walk in to a hall festooned with Rubens!The Goya Black Pictures are... More

Aside from seeing all the world's great paintings in one place, you'll enjoy the incredible care and skill put into the exhibits and even the permanent collection.
