Situated at the head of the city park, a lovely place to spend an hour or two admiring some excellent exhibitions. The Rembrandt alone is worth the E9 entrance fee.

Visited this to see the Goya exhibition which was definitely interesting to get a bit more insight into his work. There were also many others artists from the same era in the display so provided much context.
Had a quick look around a couple of the other rooms storing the permanent collection much of which I didn’t know before. Many Spanish artists depicting historical, religious or everyday scenes.
Overall I found the staff helpful and the gallery nice but a bit smaller than expected.
Buy a joint ticket for this and the Guggenheim to save money on tickets.

A must go to contrast yourself from the modernity of the Guggenheim museum. Spend at least two to three hours here. There are many fine masterpieces and we particularly liked the ones by Ignacio Zuloaga

We only had time to visit the Goya exhibit. It was good but Goya was my least favorite artist in the exhibit.

I don't know if I got out of the bed the wrong way but me and this museum didn't get on. I'd been pleasantly surprised by the Guggenheim and underwhelmed by this one
