The Prado Museum is one of the most famous in our country and the most visited in Madrid , as well as being one of the most important in the world. That is why they have decided to modify their schedules to be able to receive a greater number of public each day and that no one is left without being able to visit their facilities.
As of next January 16, it will open every day of the week, without being closed on Mondays, something that has always been the case but there is not much time left for it to continue being so. From that date on, it will not only be open to the public every day but the hours will also be longer, being from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays and holidays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This measure is taken not only to receive more visitors but also to be able to adapt to the schedules of the most select European museums , also offering different tours, temporary exhibitions and also many permanent ones. This new measure in the schedules is already followed by several Europeans such as the British Museum and also many North Americans.
This change will also allow greater availability to see the extensive exhibition of the Hermitage del Prado , which opened this month and will be available until March 25. This exhibition allows you to visit the famous Hermitage museum but without leaving Madrid and for a price of € 12 for the general public and half for those who have access to the reduced price (groups, the elderly, the disabled, etc.)
General admission to the museum costs € 10 and if you want it with an audio guide it will cost you € 19.50, although young people, students and retirees can enter for € 5. Admission is free for students up to 25 years old, the disabled, the unemployed, children and members of certain organizations.
