Immense collection, many large art works, especially strong in works by masters of Catholic art. I especially liked the huge, renovated building that housed the museum.

Our visit to this globally important museum fully met our expectations. Although busy with visitors, the numbers didn't feel overwhelming because of the scale of the gallery and didn't detract from enjoying the work. A visit would be worthwhile for anyone with even a small interest in art. If , like us, you arrive to find a long queue for... More

Made a morning trip over to the Prado. Great museum with many famous pieces. Free entry for students which was a big plus. Short line too

Please forgive the atrocious pun in the title of my review but this is really a quite staggeringly superb museum; probably one of the finest 2 or 3 art galleries in the world. It is well represented by european artworks from most historical periods and is particularly rich in works by major figures such as Bosch, Breugel, Murillo, El Greco,... More

We had a personal guided tour by an excellent guide, Manuel, arranged by our hotel. It was fascinating and informative and we had an excellent insight into the development of not just Spanish painting but painting in general. And, while it was the beginning of Easter week, it was not mobbed as other great galleries and museums so often are... More

A little louvre. very nice place! very well conservated and organizated museum. There was an exposition of Velasquez: awsome! Just some staff members that allowed some people to take pictures and others no, this is bad. and the entrance after 18h is FREE. enjoy it! É um pequeno Louvre. Lugar bacana demais, muito bem organizado o museu! Havia uma exposição... More

Depends what you expect from the Prado Museum. But believe me, you will get a lot more. Beautifully spent day. Even after a day of sightseeing we did not feel tired. A few tips: buy tickets over the internet and avoid the crowds at the box office;come before noon and avoid crowds (best immediately after opening)

What is there not to like? Wow! Top tip: You can buy a combined entrance and Guide book ticket which is €9 more than just the entrance. Once in there (when you realise you'd really like a guide book!) then the guide book cost €19.50

Buy your tickets in advance. We came a little before 10 and had to wait 20+ minutes to buy them. You can also pay by credit card at a small self-serve kiosk. We didnt as we wanted to buy the discounted 3 museum package, which saves about 20 percent over individualy purchased. This option is not litsted at he ticket... More
