What people are saying about Museo del Prado
I was so amazed by the Prado Museum. Much of which I learned about during art history was staring at me in the face. It gave me chills and I was filled with wonder. I highly recommend visiting this museum while in Madrid.
There is always a line to buy tickets outside. Staying in the line under the Sun could really make you feel worse before the museum. So Skip-the-Line Prado made my museum experience definitely better. And the Prado museum is really worth to see.
You don't need to be an art aficionado to appreciate the works housed in the Prado. If you are short on time or simply wish to focus your visit on the "highlights," the written guide (free at the museum) will point you in the direction of the most notable words. Do complement your visit with the other art museums in the local area, such as the Reina Sofia.
Marta took us through a wonderful tour of the Prado Museum. She was knowledgeable and didn’t rush. She covered the highlights and took us on a journey Great private tour
On a Sunday morning at 10AM, didn’t really need this Skip the Line pass since there was no line. The intention is for easy access and that have been helpful later in day since there were definitely crowds.
