  • ... day with free rate and I have decided to pay you a visit. I've been through his door a hundred times, but I've never been in. When you ask for recommendations to visit museums in Madrid this is among the forgotten, which is appreciated when you visit it, very few people, total freedom to enjoy the paintings that you like the most. I downloaded the app from the museum, in which they explain several of the most important works (they should do it with more works). The works I liked the most: 'The Perception of Christ' (Gerard Seghers), 'Susana and the Old' (Rubens), 'Crucifición' (Hans Mielich) and of course, 'La Primavera' (Arcimboldo) Not all works have information posters, I think they should put them. The staff who took care of me at the ticket office and rooms was very friendly at all times. In short, a great discovery, to which I will return to see the rest of the collections.

  • It does not have the reputation of the other museums of Madrid but I recommend it to all those interested in the Fine Arts. It is in a central location and apart from its funds usually has interesting temporary exhibitions

  • I'm enjoying my time in the museum of Real Academia de Bellas Artes. Different artworks from classical up to modern. Masterpieces, beautiful paintings, unforgettable sculptures, building and city projects and more more more. 3 floors, please note that without elevator. 8 EUR entrance fee. Highly recommended.
  • We went on a wednesday when entry is free (check website for details) but would have been well worth the entry on any day. A really good selection of exhibits covering a wide range of periods and types. Best to allow 3 hrs plus to do it justice.
