  • Of the museums of Madrid, it is my favorite along with the Prado. The best time to visit it first thing in the morning, there are few people, its exhibitions are anthological, both permanent and itinerant. mandatory visit

  • Great museum, very big lots of different styles and periods! Free for unemployed or on Mondays at certain times. Toilets and cafe. Photos allowed! Lovely grounds too. We went at opening time and it gets busy quickly
  • It’s a very good museum. You should have to spend hours if you will like to enjoy. It’s a little bit expensive. But have a day in which you can go without charge. I recommend than you go to the web page or ask in the information center for this days.
