Upon advise of our host we took advantage of the free admission after 4p.m. Good opportunity to get a quick look at some of Spain's art treasures.

I am amazed by the size of this place and the amount of display. It seems that you would need a whole day to browse through. I wish that there were more sitting areas to rest.

Had been here many years ago but like any special museum it is worth going again and again! We had a guide for a 2 hour tour that highlighted some of the most important pieces. That was wonderful as the Prado is overwhelming! Enjoy!

An extraordinary museum with a wonderful collection. I arrived about 9:45 and queued for entry tickets for about 30 minutes which was great. A must do when you are in Madrid. Be warned, you will need plenty of time as the collection is huge.

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
