Wonderful place filled with breath taking master pieces. The one negative thing that I would like to comment about the Prado is the fact that it's lighting is horrible. Some of the painting you need to be at the back of the room to see...More

Queues to get in were not a problem at this time of year. Cafe was good for lunch and of course, the paintings and sculptures outstanding.

Of course, this is a must visit. The masters on view are so impressive. But it is very large and some exhibits are difficult to find. Perhaps signage or maps will be updated soon.

The Prado museum is very impressive by itself but what made this so good was a private tour with Enrique from Get Your Guide. It was an art and history lesson all in one. Enrique is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A great afternoon (3 hours).

We loved the truly weird and nightmarish Hieronymus Bosch collection and apparently so did many others. Other than that, there were so many technically wonderful masterpieces which featured the Hapsburgs and their genetic deformity, the Hapsburg lip/chin, not attractive at all.

If you're in Madrid, hopefully you'll make time to go to at least a couple of their world class museums. The Prado does not disappoint. It houses some of the world's masterpieces by Goya, Velasquez, and many others. Although you could spend days here, 2...More

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

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
