Good to know

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Prado Museum is in late spring and early fall.  The weather is at its mildest and you’ll experience less crowding than you would in the busy tourist season of summer.  At times, the heat of summer can be so severe that your shoes melt into the asphalt.  And, you’ll discover that finding affordable lodging becomes more difficult.  If you don’t mind less than perfect weather and relatively quiet streets, you can often take advantage of lower hotel rates and airline prices in the winter.  In terms of the best time of the day to visit the Prado Museum, early morning and the lunch break provide your best chance of a short wait in line and less crowding within the more popular galleries.  But, if you’re not an early riser, then try arriving 90 minutes before closing.  Most visitors have already gone home by then.

Getting there

Getting to the Prado Museum is rather simple.  If, like most people, you plan on taking the metro, you can use one of two nearby stations.  Either reach the Atocha Station by using the Blue Line L1 or reach the Banco de España Station by riding the Red Line L2.  From these stations, it is best to use the Prado Museum’s Jerónimo’s Entrance or the Goya Entrance, which is found on Felipe IV Street.  The Prado Museum is also easily reachable by bus.  Try taking Bus Lines 9, 10, 14, 19, 27, 34, 37, or 45.  Of course, you could also take a taxi cab.  But taxis in Madrid are pretty expensive and you won’t always get a fair shake from the cabbie.  Finally, riding a bike to the Prado Museum represents an enticing option because of the small expense and the unique experience offered by the sights and sounds of the city.
