You'll need most of a day to see round the extensive spaces in this terrific building. A colleague remarked that it looks like it was designed by SMEG, but all the same, it's hugely impressive. Multiple buildings, exhibits, floors, beautiful stonework in places, an outdoor...More

It’s a fabulous place but a bit overwhelming due to its size. Take a tour. We loved the beauty of Picasso, Dali, Magritte etc. Not to be missed whilst in Madrid.

Nicely designed and well organised museum. The exhibits are interesting and rich. One needs time to see and absorb everything.

This museum is the home of the Guernica, which was the most impressive piece of art i have ever seen. The building is also amazing; just love it! Will return

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
