Allow yourself at least 2 hours to explore the museum. Don't miss the Guernica ! The museum contains a vast collection of spanish painters and others.

Headed here for free entry on Friday night (rock 'n' roll). Saw 'Guernica' and some of the Dali bits, sadly was a bit too fatigued and riddled with blisters to make the most of the collections and wander down its looooong corridors. Liked the shop,...More

Lovely gallery with many many masterpieces which you will no doubt recognise even if you don't know who the artists are. My suggestion would be to combine this with the one of the other art gallaries in this part of town

very good mix between the old (hospital) structure and Jean Nouvel's additions , there is absolutely more to be seen than the "main piece", Picasso's Guernica ... so take at least 2 hours for planning the visit

Worth a visit to see the Picasso s. I am not a modern art fan but would still recommend a visit . If it's quiet enough have a quiet sit in the quadrangle in the sun.

since my last visit, anyway. This is a serious art museum and as good as most in the world in its field. It has a very strong collection of modern and contemporary art displayed in conjunction with a number of temporary exhibitions and merits a...More

Beautiful museum, easy to visit with the Prado and Thiessen museums. Modern concept. Easy access by public transportation or taxi. I went specifically there to see Guernica and Dali's Girl in the window.

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

Hallo, you can rent an audio guide for extra 4.5 euro. I dont think you need to line for that. If you book a room at Novotel, for free they provide a pad with internet connection. You can carry it with you while sightseeing... More
