Highlights

  • 1500 paintings in beautiful surroundings, including works by Spanish luminaries such as Goya and Velázquez
  • Rated by National Geographic as one of the top ten museums in the world

Description

Based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, the Prado is a beautiful old castle with more than a thousand fascinating works on display. From Spanish masters like Velázquez and Goya, to works by Titian, Rembrandt, El Greco, Rubens and more, this is a must-see for the art lover. And with this skip-the-line ticket you'll get right in - to both the Permanent and Temporary Exhibitions!

Welcome to one of the world's premier art galleries. The more than 7000 paintings held in the Museo del Prado’s collection (although only around 1500 are currently on display) are a penetrating look at the celebrated history of Spanish art.

The collection includes a large number of paintings by Spanish Golden Age golden boy Velázquez, and an overview of the somber, sometimes darkly psychological, works of Goya - widely considered to be the most important Spanish artist of his era.

And it's not just Spanish art - Prado has works by a number of Flemish masters: Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel, and Anton Van Dyck. And their collection also includes the remarkable Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, a weird-as-heck - and thoroughly wonderful - triptych. Full of hallucinatory images of hedonism, it's thought to perhaps be a warning against the temptations of pleasure-seeking but, on the other hand... he makes it all look so good.

With one of the world's finest collections of European art from the 12th century to the early 19th century, housed in a splendid castle, the Museo del Prado is one of the most visited art museums in the world. When you're there, you'll know why.

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time, and go at a relaxed pace; there is so much to see here that it can be overwhelming if you try to race through. Instead, slow down and spend as long as you can - this is Spain, there's no need to rush.

Insider tip

Go in the morning for more chance of peace and quiet. The museum is worth an extended visit, so plan to grab lunch at the excellent Café Prado, then carry on exploring the exhibits. Convenient and delicious.

Easy to buy online and instructions about where to go (jeronimos entry) were good. You can download an audio guide in english free on your phone so dont forget your earpiece.( hiring audioguides coats 6 euros each, but the english info on each paiting is good anyway on the walls so you really dont need to hire them, especially with the audioguide on your phone

I saved my time since there were hundreds of people in a very long line waiting for tickets. The guide was polite and very knowledgeable. It is the right thing to do.

Well worth buying the tickets in advances. We spent 13 seconds in getting through admissions. The line outside was 150 metres long.....
