The museum is very big - there are dozens of halls and rooms and several floors. So plan the visit accordingly in terms of comfortable shoes and clothes. Huge collection of modern art.

Picasso's Guernica alone is worth the visit to this museum. Despite high temperatures and jet lag we enjoyed the large collection of paintings and sculptures.

We spent 2 hours here and could have spent more if we had not been so hungry. Lots of Picasso, Dali and Miro. Really good resident collection of 20th century art compared to other galleries.

The history of modern art all in one place - Picasso, Bunuel, Dali, Miro and so many more! It’s huge! Organized by themes so hard to use if you’re interested in only specific artists. Go - highly recommended!

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
