A great museum, with many interesting and important works. Note that the "free entrance" means long queues, so make sure you arrive early.

Information for casual (English) visitors seems poor and made for a frustrating entry. Compulsory (?) cloakroom experience and screening hard (for us) to understand. Once in, I wish we had been able to prepare better for where we wanted to go and what to see. Just wandering, and enjoying, art as found equals tired feet and mind. This place is... More

We got tickets for the temporary exhibition (of Goya cartoons for tapestries) at only 7 euro for over-65s. The permanent collection is stunning, all centuries; room after room of El Greco, Murillo, Ribera, and so on.

Must be something special. My 16 year old son spent a whole day there. If you knew him you would realize what a big rap that is. Just digestible in a day, a stupendous collection of world class art. Especially loved the " other Mona Lisa". If it held nothing other than Las Meninas it would be worth the trip.

It’s quite interesting and a lot of beautiful paintings. While in Madrid why not soak up some culture and visit one of its best museums.

We spent the whole day here and still didn't see everything. Get the audio and do the 'must sees' on the map guide and also don't miss the basement floor. Eat at the cafe half way thru for a break but be prepared to walk and stand for the day. I reviewed the museum in Florence, can't remember how to... More

It's a lovely museum . You could easily spend hours just reading the descriptions and admiring the various paintings ! It's a pity we didn't get a guide to explain all the history of each famous pieces. Definitely a museum not to be missed besides Louvre museum of Paris.

It's been there for centuries, it has lots of famous works of art, and it's definitely worth the trip. While I had heard there were long lines, I walked in at 2:30 pm on a Saturday with no wait. Had several hours, more than enough time, to see what I wanted. The free brochure is an excellent guide, with thumbnail... More
