We went here around 11.00 am and by then it was already a very long queue. We got to stand in line for 1.5 hours.

The museum is very nice, a bit too big maybe to go through on one day. We had some favorites we wanted to see and we managed to see them.

The children were not as enthusiastic as we adults.

If you love classical art from the 17th century to the 19th century, you should definitely visit the Pradomuseum.

Love the way it is structured and how everything is laid out. Reminded me of how the louvre was. Love the collections.

The Prado National Art Museum has one of the world's finest collections of European art. Art lovers could easily spend days here! And, people with just a slight interest or curiosity in knowing what the great art works of the world look like ( or parents who would like their children to be exposed to such art) will find a visit here interesting, an eye-opener, or perhaps, even awesome.
Knowing that we could not see all the masterpieces in this museum, we made a list of the works we considered 'must-see' and where each work is located. You can source this from their website, and also download and print out the layout of the museum, to save your legs. However, the room attendants were very happy to direct us to the next item on our list! We spent over 3 hours there, including a café stop. (Yes, it was more expensive than across the road, but just a little.) There is a free cloakroom. In fact, their website has a wealth of information about facilities, discounts etc.
Entrance is 15€ if you buy your ticket online; half price for seniors, free for the under-18's, and students 18-25. You will need to provide proof of age/status. Do purchase your ticket online as this will save you from queuing for tickets. Lines can be very long! Your ticket has a date on it, but the entry time is not stated. Actually, if you are on a tight budget, and can spare the time, entrance is free after 6 pm,after 5 pm on Sundays. However, you can imagine how long the lines will be then! Some people start lining up an hour or more before the free entry time. We were at the door 2 hours before the free entry time, and saw crowds in the park, but were were no lines at all at the entrance: we walked straight through.
There are 3 entrances. The general entrance is at Jerónimos Entrance or Goya Entrance, on Felipe IV Street. This is near the Neptune fountain and Hotel Ritz. If you take a bus, eg Bus 34, the stop is called Neptuno. If you have an online ticket, you will be directed to Door 1 & 2 here. (Note:The bus stop called Museo Prado is at a different enyrance, the one for educational groups.)
If you are really keen on art, do also see the other 2 art museums very nearby- the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen. You can also buy a combo ticket.

The museum is one of the most interesting and beautiful that I visited in my life. If you like Spanish painters you have to visit. There are even a lot of foreign painters.
Negative: Maybe is too big to be visited in one day, you have to spend minimum 5 hours there.

The BEST. Learn art history by looking. Easy to compare side by side Rubens, Titian, Velasquez and so forth.
