Free Museums in Madrid

As guides, everyone always asks us: “How can I get into a museum for free?” In Madrid, it’s really easy. You just have to go at the right time! Here’s how you can get the most out of Madrid’s art scene.

Museo del Prado: Art from the 16th-19th centuries.( Velázquez, Goya, El Greco, Rubens…)

Free entrance: Every day 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM (Sundays 5:00 PM-7:00 PM).

Museo Reina Sofia: Contemporary Art ( Dalí, Picasso, Miró, Juan Gris…)

Free entrance: Monday-Friday 7:00 PM-9:00 PM (Closed Mondays) Saturday 2:00 PM-close. Sundays 10:00 AM-7:00 PM.

Museo Thyssen Bornemizsa: Mondays 12-16.00 (Renaissance,  Manierismo,  Barroco, Rococó, Romanticism)

DELUXE SECRET: Check out the “maja desnuda/maja vestida” combination in El Prado. When Goya painted the “naked woman,” the church and the royal family ordered him to replace it with a clothed version. Instead of painting a new version, he painted an exact version with clothes. Both versions still exist, side by side, in the museum.
