My wife and I spent the better part of 3 hours here and had such an excellent time viewing all the paintings of the artists I had learned about in my Spanish classes. The museum has tons of masterpieces and is a great value as...More
One of the world's greatest collections of masterpieces. I won't even write a review: Bring your early morning self to the museum and stay a long while and see some of the world's most renown pieces, please. I wish I could have spent more time...More
I had a chance to visit this museum with friends in late July. We saw some beautiful art and also were amused to see a very talented artist with his canvas set up and painting a copy of one of the pieces. In the past,...More
El Prado is surely a place to visit while in Madrid with great masterpieces of Spanish art. However, I had feeling that the paintings were all a bit mixed, I couldn't understand if we follow art per phases or per certain artists cause they would...More
This museum is very well run, it is clean and well maintained. The exhibits are very nice and they have one of the largest collections. we also went the Lourve last week and we enjoyed the Prado 10 times more!
If you aren't into spending all day in a museum and just want to see a few of the fantastic exhibits available here, then you can get in for free for the last 2 hours of the day. We went on a Saturday at 7...More
You don’t buy your entry ticket at the entrance, it is purchased around the corner. There was no queue. A labyrinthine layout. If you like your Old Masters and characterful faces looking out at you from the past this is for you.

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
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.

Yes... you can draw there. I saw various people drawing inside the museum and no one told them to stop. What I am sure you CANNOT do is bring in a stand and set things up to draw. A sketch pad is ok but an easel etc.. will... More
Yes... you can draw there. I saw various people drawing inside the museum and no one told them to stop. What I am sure you CANNOT do is bring in a stand and set things up to draw. A sketch pad is ok but an easel etc.. will not be admitted.
Security would probably take this sort of equipment away before you even get in. Hope I helped you and ENJOY this beautiful museum. 😃
