My sister and I are travelling to Madrid for 3 days. I have been several times but my sister has never been, so what shouldn't I let her miss? e.g. Any stand-out art galleries?
Well today we saw the Biblioteca Nacional de España (www.bne.es) which had two exhibitions both were free which was cool. Only issue was that only one had any translations into anything other than spanish.
Apparently most musuems are free on Sundays so we intend to see Museo del Prado (www.museodelprado.es) and the Museo Nacional centro de Arte Reina Sofia then.
Retiro is also a great place to take a alfresco lunch if the weather is good. We are here in the autumn so all the leaves are orange and red. about 10 years ago
Well apparently every museum has different "free" periods.
Reina Sofia is free from 14:30 till 21:00 on Saturdays and 10:00 to closing on Sundays.
Prado is free from 5pm to 8pm on Sundays (great since I fly at 8pm...)
Thyssen cant tell if there are free periods about 10 years ago
