The Bicentenary of the Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain

January 21, 2019

The Prado Museum (Spanish: Museo del Prado; Spanish pronunciation: [muˈseo ðel ˈpɾaðo]) is the main Spanish national art museum, located in central Madrid. It is widely considered to have one of the world's finest collections of European art, dating from the 12th century to the early 20th century, based on the former Spanish Royal Collection, and the single best collection of Spanish art. El Prado is one of the most visited sites in the world, and it is considered one of the greatest art museums in the world.

"The Museo del Prado opened to the public on 19 November 1819 as a Royal Museum of Painting and Sculpture. In 2019, we celebrate our Bicentenary a commemoration that will reveal the path covered since 1819 until today. On this special occasion, we wish to reflect on the future and the forthcoming challenges for this and the other great Museums of ancient painting: the need to attract social groups that traditionally are not attracted by the collections, to encourage gender and minority research studies or the challenges caused by overcrowding."

Opening Hours - Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays and holidays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Venue: Museo Nacional del Prado. Calle Ruiz de Alarcón 23. Madrid. 28014
