    This has to be one of the best private collections of art in the world. Collection starts with ancient Italian art and ends with Pop art. Start on the top floor and work your way down

    One of the best museums in the world. A range of famous paintings covering a wide range of periods. A must see on a visit to Madrid. Spend some time wandering the streets. Stop and have some tapas!

    After El Prado, this is the best art museum in Madrid. Great collection of masters from medieval to 20th Century. Perfect to have a comprehensive vision of the history of art.

    Really well curated museum. It often gets overshadowed by its bigger neighbors but it's worth a visit. Free on Mondays.

    There’s a free cloakroom. The permanent collections have ~50 rooms. It took me 2.5 hrs to see everything. Get an audio guide for €5.

    Museum is en el Palacio de Villahermosa (Paseo del Prado). Offers a variety of masterpieces from 13th to late 20th century. I liked most final rooms with avant-grade pop art collection.

    Allow 2h30-3h for this museum, or skip the medieval bit - the last rooms are absolutely amazing & you'll wish you'd allowed more time for them! Not a lot of signs - download the apps for explanations.

    Good museum, the modern stuff is clearly the best. You can move quite swiftly through the stuff upstairs. Free entry Monday afternoons.

    From Van Eyck to Picasso, the museum offers a full ride through the history of Western Art. On a visit and a half hour one can understand the evolution of painting by the great masters.

    If you like Impressionism as much as I do, it's even better than Prado Museum.
