    This museum can take at least 4 hours to see. Come early to get a spot in line. There's free museum hours in the evening but the line to get in is much longer than the one in the morning.

    Paintings for days

    Ideal for enthusiasts of Spanish, Italian, French and Flemish painting and sculpture. I strongly recommend the section of Goya, El Greco and Velazquez. With madrid card, you dont have to buy a ticket.
  • Kyriaki V.
    One of the best museums. The Goya paintings, the El Greco paintings and the Bosch exhibition were the highlights.A definite must!

    If you want to see the Bosch exhibition or other special exhibition make sure you book online in advance. I queued up outside for tickets only to be told at the counter that it was sold out that day.

    You are not allowed to take pictures of the paintings...
  • Witold D.
    Buy a ticket online to avoid a huge waiting line. Plan your visit ahead, it's rather impossible to see everything in one go.

    Must-see, and plan on spending at least a few hours. The free admission times are not long enough to see everything!

    Prado Museum is a place you should definitely see before leaving Madrid. After 17h has free entrance. Prepare for long aisles! (It's better to arrive before 17h to assure a better place on it).

    Free entrance on certain days but get there early, the line usually over an hour long
  • Vicki K.
    A museum with amazing masterpieces. The lighting needs work, as some paintings needed constant shifting around in order to see them in all their glory.
  • Bijan Y.
    Must do in Madrid. Spanish and European masters and great masterpieces...from Bosch to Goya

    Excellent works of art. It needs improvement at planning the visit around. It is very confusing with all those thousand rooms.

    Use the 50 top pieces of art guide, listed in the museum map, to direct your visit & route - otherwise, likely to get overwhelmed & lost!
  • Kostiantyn S.
    Do not miss expressionist paintings by Goya (aka "black paintings")!

    It really needs time to see all the paintings. So l recommend you to choose the ones you would like to see if you have limited time. Ruben was amazing, so do the Velazques and the Goya.

    For free entrance go there at 5.30 not to spend 30 min of your 2 free hours in a line. Even if the line seems huge, it's only 15-20 min waiting
  • Hannah T.
    Incredible. You can go at the free hours, but go at least a half an hour before because the line grows QUICKLY
