The museum is spacious and has fine displays of modern art in all forms. Guernica was a highlight of the visit. We were able to see young children being taught the significance of this masterpiece by their teachers. It is a must see.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard

Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
