Museo Del Prado – If you are looking for a day of culture and history, then one of the best places you can visit is the Museo del Prado. This museum offers a wealth of things to see, and provides a fascinating day out.
The Madrid Prado Museum is considered internationally to be one of the world’s most significant art institutions. The majority of the work by both Goya and Velasquez is housed here, along with many and notable works by El Greco, Murillo and Zurbaran. The galleries are similarly home to a substantial collection of Flemish paintings including work by Rubens, Van Dyck and Rembrandt.
Wandering through the hallways of this extensive museum is a lovely way to spend the afternoon (especially if it happens to be raining). The work on display here is both eye-catching and interesting, and it is easy to find staff members to answer any questions that you may have.
If you do decide to go to the Prado Museum, make sure that you organise your visit properly, as there is a lot to see here. Opening times can vary depending on the season, so check this out in advance before you go.
