  • I've visited several times since 2005, I love their collection of North American painters, unknown to me and my relatives. Comfortable visit, I got the wheelchair I need, and I was able to take my partner to know many works. Nice, beautiful building, full of trees and plants very careful entry. It is to repeat many times this visit.

  • Madrid obviously has many great art museums, but this may be my favorite. With a good, if not comprehensive, collection stretching from the 13th century until the end of the 20th, this museum has something that will speak to anyone remotely interested in the tradition of Western Art. All of the temporary exhibitions that I've seen here are well curated, thoughtful, and engaging. This museum definitely deserves your time and attention!
  • I didnt know the museum, but it is at least as beautifull as de Prado. We visited the museum when they had the Monet exhibition. That was really impressive.
  • Regardless of what type of art enthusiast you are, chances are you will come away from this well-curated museum happy to note some new favourite pieces. This museum houses a vast collection of art from classic to modern artists, and arranged in a way that allows you to easily progress through the levels of the museum and not feel like you might have missed anything special (lots of room between paintings and for walking about). A brief but genuine appreciation of all the works in this museum will probably have you walking for about 2 hours. There is a coat and bag counter where all things must be placed, for no cost. Photography is allowed, but without flash.
  • Good paintings from famous artists, but a lot of repeats. Earliest paintings from around 1300-1400 ad. Nothing too big, but the self portrait of Rembrandt was nice as well as the portrait of Henry the VIII. A lot less crowded than Prado for a cheaper price.
  • A really big and beautiful museum! I would highly recommend to go to the museum if you are in Madrid and want to have some 'culture time'.
