The Prado was one of two museums I have left to visit in my life - the other being the Hermitage.
So I was excited, maybe too much.
The Titians and Vasquez are more than anywhere perhaps and almost overloading.
The crowds are managed well...More
If you love art then you need to visit the Prado. This museum houses an incredible collection of art work that is more than worth the price of admission. It’s hard to believe that all of this art once belonged to the Spanish royal family....More
The Prado National Museum is so well- stocked with the master's artworks! A huge collection of these work are displayed and one whole day won't be enough if you go one by one to appreciate every work of art! A surprise to me is the...More
I need to come back!

As with almost all museums, it's best to focus on what you wish to see before you go. The opening times are available on their website of Prado, and a plan of the museum can be downloaded too. It's worth noting, however, that, they close...More
If you 're in Madrit and like art, you just need to visit this. Great idea is to buy ticket online though because ticket lines can be massive. Exhibitions are nicely organised but be prepared and wear comfty shoes - my sport watch showed you...More
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
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.

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

Security would probably take this sort of equipment away before you even get in. Hope I helped you and ENJOY this beautiful museum. 😃
