I've gone twice at the museum and it wasn't enough. I could spend a whole week there. It's a marvelous museum, I would like to go back whenever I could.

This is an outstanding art museum with outstanding displays of the old masters. Their is much to see and if you really study the works you can spend all day here. The Goya Black Paintings were our favorite.

Plenty of time required for a visit to Prado National Museum. Pay for an adult with guide book this offers good value for money.

I spent 1 1/2 hours looking at the most wonderful paintings and could've stayed all day. But like any day trips there is lots more to see and the next time I come to Madrid I will visit the art gallery again

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
