  • Museum has lots of famous Picasso paintings. Quite complicated to navigate around the museum and it’s a shame they don’t sign post important rooms and piece more. Also there are barely any seats...

  • Quite a mix of art. We enjoyed the variety and the layout. Recommend a couple hours visit even if you've also visited the prado.

  • Beautiful drawings! As a person who is "not that much into art" I had a lot of fun and was very impressed. From what I read, they have the second biggest private collection in the world, with more than 1600 paintings/drawings. I saw different (styles?) of painting and it was beautiful. Take in account that the museum is big, and that for some of the paintings there is an explanation, so I recommend to go with headphones.
  • A superb museum. This is a collection that ranges all the way through a really long period of time, inclusive of medieval art, the Renaissance, and through to modern art. It also tells the story very well. It was a pleasure to walk these galleries and see some genuine masterpieces in the collection. Facilities are great. Good toilets, good outdoor café, and interesting temporary exhibitions too that compliment the permanent collection. Cannot recommend enough and out of the ‘Big 3’ museums in Madrid, this is only second behind the Reina Sofia and a significantly better experience than the Prado.
