What people are saying about Museo del Prado
The tour was well organised and we got to know a lot of interesting details about painters and their when why and how... We really had no waiting time and got in quickly...
The regular line to enter was quite long. Thankfully, I had purchased this ticket and the line to enter the museum with it was much shorter. About 5 minutes or less. I am glad I purchased it!
Our tour guide was Marta, and she was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She met us at our apartment and educated us about Madrid's history as we walked to the museum. We have seen the most important works of arts in about 3 hours and learned the history of their creators as well as the history of Madrid's royals that collected the art and patronized the artists. Despite the massive amount of information delivered, Marta kept things very light and kept us engaged throughout the whole time.
Smooth transaction obtained online tickets easily and adjustment of date due to museum activity the day originally scheduled. Would purchase tickets again through this service.
The Prado is, of course, a world class art museum. As such, I'm sure there's always a line of people waiting to get in. I highly recommend buying tickets in advance. It makes everything easier.
