Full description
Since it opened in 1819, the Prado Museum has acquired a dazzling array of paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and decorative art that cover the history of Spanish art to form one of the finest collections of European art in the world. Based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, the Royal Museum would become known as the National Museum of Painting and Sculpture, and subsequently the Museo Nacional del Prado. The collection currently comprises around 7,600 paintings, 1,000 sculptures, 4,800 prints and 8,200 drawings, in addition to a large number of historic documents. With your full-day ticket, you will have access to more than 1,300 works currently on display in the main building. The size of this collection can cause headaches for visitors trying to choose what to see, but the Prado has organized 3 routes that focus on its masterpieces, dating from the Romanesque to the 19th century. Once inside, you can purchase an audio guide to quickly lead you to works by artists such as Bartolomé Bermejo, Pedro Berruguete, Sánchez Coello, El Greco, Ribera, Zurbarán, Murillo, Alonso Cano, Velázquez and Goya.

There are several entrances to the Prado and it can be very hot walking round the building trying to find the correct way in. It has to be said that there are a lot of religious paintings including many crucifixions. This is not to everybody's taste. The Velasquez's are fabulous but there are many less well known paintings which may provide more joy. I would like to have easily found a map on entrance to the museum. I am sure there was one but they were not obvious. The Prado is big. It is a good idea to have an idea of what you want to concentrate on before you start.

Using the pass was very easy no waiting in long lines. The museum is very crowded there are tons of people everywhere. It is kind of hard to relax and really take in the art work because there are multiple large tour groups surrounding the pieces that in top off all the other people makes it a bit hectic. I would definitely go at an earlier time if you really want to explore the pieces. The art work is amazing.

There were a lot of lines everywhere so it was a little difficult to figure out where we could enter with the ticket since lines were forming. One person said we could enter at one area, while another one said that we could not. You will probably still have to wait in a little line, but it didn't take longer than 5 minutes. Overall okay/good process
