When you decide to visit, make sure to give yourself enough time and where comfy shoes! We only got through the Spanish art collection and the sculpture area and we were all tuckered out! The cost is 14 euro and they offer you a Prado Guide in book form ( for an additional 9 euros) which I would avoid. We... More

This place is sober and serious but it houses the art pieces that stay in your memory forever. That feeling you get when you face the painting you studied and dreamt of, repeats over and over in this beautiful Museum.

I can't really say too much, i'm not really a museum kind of person. But there was a lot of people there and I've heard people say it's one of the best museums and stayed there for hours! One couple we met (in their 60's) said they spent 2 days! So it must be that good. Not my cup of... More

The art ids fabulous - and the guidebook will tell you all about that. A few words of caution though - wear comfortable shoes. The building is HUGE and just walking around it will be several km in total - so don't combine it with loads of other walking on the same day unless you are very FIT! Allow at... More

Excellent visit! Worth seeing over and over again! Make sure you get the hand held headphones. Lots of great art pieces to view. Take time for a coffee/tea break in the middle of your visit.

My friends and I went to Madrid and the Prado is definitely something to see!! We spent about 3 hours looking around, but you could easily spend all day! Buy tickets in advance online. The audio guide is definitely worth the extra money! Go early in the morning. A must when you are Madrid!

We enjoyed our visit to the Prado Museum especially the Velasquez and Goya paintings. The museum does not allow photos which was disappointing but we still enjoyed the exhibits. The Madrid pass allowed us free entry and there was a separate line for entry.

The paintings are worth more than one visit. The Velasquez paintings are impressive. I kept going back to look at favorites and could have spent the day there. If the crowds are large, plan a Sunday morning visit when attendance is less.

This museum is huge! During my first visit I went during the free hours after 6pm and enjoyed perusing the vast collection of Flemish art where I had the pleasure of discovering Bosch and his strange and fantastic imagery. Unfortunately, with the sheer number of pieces, two hours was not enough to even clear the first floor, or even part... More
