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.

LMost of us tourists are stretched for time to enjoy all that Madrid has to offer. The Prado, of course, is at the top of the list. I bought the ticket on line before I left Canada,
It is just the only way to go. I highly recommend that this is the way to go. Lots of time to spend with the masters.

Bought tickets online abaout one hour before we got to Prado. Seeing the long ticket line at the entrance, we're sure we did the right thing.
There even was a line at the "Skip The Line" entrance, but only 20 people or so... and by the way.... Prado was magnificient :)

My favorite collection of paintings, as good or better than Louvre or Musee d’Orsay for me.

I loved being introduced to works by El Greco, Goya and other wonderful Spanish painters. We walked straight in with our tickets.
