  • One of the emblematic museums of Madrid in which you can enjoy different pictorial styles. In my case, it is always a pleasure to see works by Kandinsky.

  • A very cozy, relaxing, interesting and well organized gallery. You'll find paintings from Italian Renaissance to XX Century with some statues too (a bronze by Giacometti). All great pieces are commented by an outstanding audio guide. The cafeteria and the gift shop are a nice experience too. Not to miss at all, even if it's very close to Prado.
  • One of loveliest collections anywhere, amazing range, something for everyone! Go go go! And nicely laid out in restful galleries, not TOO many people, enough benches for my weary back. I always discover, or rediscover, something special when I go. And on my most recent trip it was free to get in!
  • Loved it here, beautiful building, wide collection of art in different genres and different periods. Well laid out and easily accessible for everyone. Good to spend an afternoon in. No major queue to access when we were there admittedly off peak but a stunning place and I enjoyed more than the Prado.
  • I bought a museum pass, couldn’t visit all cause a lot of them were closed on Monday when I had time. I had a great time here, lots and lots of beautiful paintings, easy to look around and you are allowed to take photos too except the temporary exhibitions. Definitely a recommendation if you like arts
  • One of the trio of must-visit museums in Madrid (and in my opinion, the best). It is filled with quality contemporary art, and a LOT of works by big name artists. It has a nice cafe/restaurant outside and very interesting temporary exhibits. I am not an art buff in any sense, but I do enjoy art a lot and this museum certainly delivered. And the best part is, YOU CAN TAKE PICTURES !
