We went to the Prado our first day in Madrid, it was late afternoon on a Monday - and we walked right in. Saw lines there other days, just time it so you don't go right when they open or on a free day. The museum is very nice with art from many famous Spanish artists (and others). It is... More

We enjoyed the Prado - it's a museum you can actually see in one day. The floor layout is such that you can easily maneuver around the crowds so that everyone can see the works of art.

We entered the museum Sunday night, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., with free admittance. Although extremely crowded, it was enjoyable for me.

amazing museum, with a beautiful paintings and a new wing that i have never been before, it is a museum that if you go to Madrid you can´t miss it, you can buy the tkts at the moment you arrive without any problem and buy also the phone to hear the explanations of the most important painters

You do need to be a history buff and really enjoy art. If possible make sure you have a good guide, luckily we did as she explained the back ground of each piece. There is a lot to view, allow lots of time to see the whole exhibition. Not really my choice of things to see but it was enjoyed... More

Incredible collection of masterpieces. We had a private guide showing us Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Reubens, Caravaggio, Bosch. I'd be just as happy roaming around aimlessly without a guide...

A large bright gallery with the pictures well hung and lit. In somewhere so large more assistance is needed to navigate about the building.One moved from room to room with little idea of what the number of the next room would be. Make a short list of what you want to see and do not try to see it all.... More

Beautiful building and amazing collection of art. I had gone specifically to see Las Meninas and I wasn't disappointed. It is hung in a room with a beautiful atrium so the light is perfect and I went back 3 times to look at it. The temporary exhibit 'El Greco and modern painting' was fascinating and very well laid out. There... More
