if you are in Madrid for a few nights, go each evening for a couple of hours. Free. Too much to take in in a day.

We are museum nerds and were overwhelmed by the Prado's collection. Only problem was we needed more than one day to enjoy this amazing museum! The Hispanic Treasures exhibit was fascinating and well done. Then we attempted to view as much as possible of the...More

Clearly, this isn't the Louvre or the British Museum. But I mean this in a good way. It's small enough to be easily navigable. Not too busy. Bi-lingual instructions. I was only here for an hour on a whirlwind trip to Madrid and I got...More

Awesome museum. Loved it much more than Louvre. A must visit. If you are in Madrid this is one place which cannot be missed.

But massive queues so get there early. They will let families with babies or the elderly jump the queue into a separate line so you aren't queuing in the sun for ages. Goya's black painting are well worth the hassle getting in.

Not our first visit but a great experience. Very well organized with a diverse collection, especially of 14-15th c religious art. The objects are astonishing well preserved and presented.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
