What an incredible museum. The art is all displayed very thoughtfully and beautifully, each exhibit felt like it was telling a story. The darkened room with Goya's "Black Paintings" took my breath away. We booked our tickets ahead of time and were able to slip into the museum right at opening. It was a little tricky maneuvering around some of the larger tour groups, but they moved on relatively quickly.

I was extremely disappointed from Prado museum not because of their exhibits but because of lack of organization.
We bought online tickets to skip the line but they had only 1 person to check them so practically we stayed in the line for half an hour.
We went to leave our coats but none of the personnel was speaking on English. Then we asked for the audio guide but they said they didn’t have due to covid. They didn’t even have a map of the museum.
We were lucky to ask if there is any guide from the museum and in fact there was so he had a good experience with the tour guide but overall I can’t understand how one of the most important museums of the world is so badly organized.

Favorite museum in the world, above the Lourve. Could spend days here and wish we had allocated more time. We had a terrific art history guide, which made it such a great experience. I highly recommend a tour guide to maximize the experience. Fabulous.

This museum is architecturally beautiful, easy to get to and easy to visit on a whim, which is what we did. After a long day of touring, we decided to stop in. The wait was about 20 minutes but once we were in, it was not too crowded. Yes, we saw a Mona Lisa - made at the same time, has a different background - just as amazing. Wonderful paintings and so much to see. Cafe is a nice spot to stop as well.

Fascinating. Set aside at least 3 hours, even if it's really little

My son, daughter and I spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the Prado. It is well laid out and not at all crowded. We experienced no lines and had plenty of time to enjoy all of the art. Our only comment would be that the restrooms were in a funky spot and were a bit difficult to find.

We used the headset and travelling with a small group, was nice as you got the historical story behind some paintings but using the detailed map, one could venture around spotting the painting by the artist of your choice.

The museum itself is phenomenal! We were very disappointed with our guide, in that, he did not speak about many other very famous Christian paintings. This included the Transfiguration of Christ by Ruben. We were amazed that this famous portrait was skipped by. When I asked him about it, the guide simply stated he doesn't have time to talk about all the paintings. He spent quite a bit of time on the painting of the cardinal and that of some dog in a painting. We felt the guide wasted our time in many ways, so we left the tour early and enjoyed the Prado on our own.
