The Prado Museum It is the main museum of Madrid and it is located in the Paseo del Prado one step away from Botanical Garden. It is one of the biggest claims of the city and, in addition, an excellent offer of free tourism, something that is growing in all corners of the world because of this crisis that seems that it will never leave us. Despite being an economic museum, 8 euros for accessing the Permanent Collection, I will give you all the information you need to be able to access it for free since there are several alternatives that the museum itself offers.
If you go after 18:00 you can enter without paying, although you will only have two hours since it closes at 20:00. On Sunday you will enjoy one more hour since happy hour starts at 5:00 p.m. It is clear that you will not be able to see much, but if you are going to stay several days you can make good use of the time and see it several times.
Furthermore, it is also free any day any time in any of these circumstances:
- Students from the European Union under 25 years old. Teachers.
- Pensioners over 60 years or with permanent disability (in this option a companion can enter for free). Also any citizen over 65 years old and belonging to a member country of the European Union.
- People with disabilities (with a companion).
- Unemployed (with paper that proves it) from any country in the EU.
- Large families with at least one adult and three descendants, two if one were disabled.
- Personnel who provide their service in the State Museums that are attached to the Ministry of Culture.
- Official Tourism Guides.
- Members of different organizations such as APEME, ANABAD, AEM or ICOM, in addition to the Fundación Amigos del Museo del Prado.
You can also access for free on days December 6, November 19, May 2, October 12 and Museum Day. As you can see, there are many options that you have, so don't lose your opportunity and visit the Prado Museum.
