What people are saying about Museo del Prado
The Prado of course seems to be the main attraction in terms of the galleries, if the crowds are anything to go by. But even in late September crowds are in all the galleries. This is expected. But you would gain by visiting, even if you are not a regular gallery visitor. I saw two temporary exhibitions both giving a different slant to the main artists presented from the Canon of art but also many Spanish artists not seen by me before. I also saw a glowing and familiar work by Fra Angelico that had recently undergone an extensive conservation process. There was an excellent video, in a comfy little theatre, describing the process. This was a highlight on this occasion. An exhibition on Ballenciaga’s dress designs and their, at times, seemingly tenuous relationship to paintings he encountered from an early age was a timed exhibition due to the extensive interest. The idea must have undergone extensive research. It was also a new slant on my experiences in many galleries.
It was our first time at the museum and we loved it ! First we went to the temporary exhibition and then we headed to the main museum which is huge. We spend more than 2 hours and we didn't finish seeing it. The ticket on the other hand, supposed to be a skip-the-line ticket, but it was just for the ticket desk...which we had to go anyway to get a physical ticket in order to enter the museum - so instead of skip-the-line we had a normal ticket.
The museum opened at 10.00 am, by using your service we entered the museum at 10.05 am. The museum exhibits are wonderful, well worth the visit for anyone interested in famous artists from a number of countries, particularly those from Spain.
The Prado Museum is wonderful!! Get there early before it gets too busy, and start with your “Must See’s “ first, and then explore. Don’t forget the head phones so you know what you’re actually looking at!
I was in Madrid for less than 24 hours and didn’t have time for lines. The skip-the-line ticket and the Get Your Guide app allowed me to skip the very long lines and have a meaningful visit to the Prado.
