  • You can not go to Madrid and not to visit it if you like art. Any exhibition that has is interesting. Recommended without a doubt.

  • It's just fabulous. There's got to be all day. Calm, measured, walking the halls, then have a delicious meal in the Cafe at the Museum and drink wine, and again go through the halls.

  • A museum should be visited. Almost too extensive, so it is no longer receptive. Many famous works from different periods of art. Just amazing!

  • I really like this museum. It has a large selection of modern art pieces. Expressionists, impressionists it has it all. Probably not as big as Prado or RS but I found this to be a benefit, as it's more manageable to see everything in a couple of hours. On Mondays you can just wander in with no tickets or queueing. Look out for the Kandinsky sketches and the Dali's
  • Top world class..even more interesting vs. Prado! Lay out is very well done. From 1330 on third floor to 1990 on first floor. All big dutch painters..Rembrandt degas..Jongkind...was mind opening! Must see on bucket list.
  • Great museum. It is well kept, renovated, has the necessary facilities and has different artworks to not bore anyone. The museum admission is cheap, but you can get in for free on Mondays! The bar is nice and the service is quick. The museum itself is very nice and easy to get around it (not a maze like prado). Artworks had explanations, titles and art types, and very few of them were out for renovation.
  • A beautiful museum. Lots of different artists work are portrayed here and it is a very large so expect to spend a bit of time here. The museum is a part of the Golden triangle and is closely located to the Prado museum.
  • Amazing collection of many worth seeing pictures. It offers a vide variety of styles, so it's like a walk along the history of art. The tour is well created, but some more information to the most important pictures would be nice.
