Great card! We got to see everything we wanted without paying anything extra. We got into the entrances quickly too. I would recommend this card.
We knew we would walk right past long lines, but didn't think the Madrid Card would make it possible to see a major art exhibit, period. A two hundred piece retrospective on Dali bought the Spaniards out in masse with lines that wrapped around the building in the rain. The exhibit was so popular, that when we walked right in with our Madrid Card we were still given a timed entry to the exhibit, three hours later. We would not have seen one of the highlights of the trip were it not for the Madrid Card.
This card is amazing.....if you make the most of it! Plan your days and visits. Check opening times and days that they may be closed (saints days). Its great being able to jump queues upon entry!!
If you are going to visit the museums, this card is a must have!! You get access to all of the major museums (for no additional fee) and you get to go to the separate entrance and bypass long lines. I love the Reina Sofia museum! The Prado is a must see. Enjoy!!
Well worth the money when we got home we worked out if we saved any money on what we saw we saved nearly £100 just on the things we saw 72 Hr pass, lots more in the book.
Real Madrid football tour included. Great purchase if in Mad.rid for 3 days or more
The Madrid Card was wonderful. It allowed us to bypass lines of people waiting to get into museums. Well worth the price. Madrid's museums are so fabulous!
I was able to visit all planned museums and even more :) Really enjoyed the experience!
if you plan to visit majority of madrid museums and sights, this is a must!
you will save some money and priority entrance to prado, thyssen-bornemisza and reina sofia museums as well as royal palace make it that more valuable if you plan to visit madrid in the high season.
don't miss the museum of america ;)
i know i will try to find and use this type of card anywhere i go next.
Excellent Value and makes getting into Museums and other attractions easy as the Card holders have another entry thus avoiding the entry lines.
It was excellent. Free entrances, discounts and no waiting. In a day we had better opportunities than people who did not have the Card. Strongly adviced.
Very helpfull card, I would not say that lines to museums that we were in were huge, but over all we saved some money and hassl of buying a tickets.
Totally recommend this pass to see all the great museums of Madrid -- with no lines!
The Madrid card gave us entry into many of the museums without having to wait in lines for tickets. Highly recommend!
The Madrid Card is very practical especially if you are seeing many attractions in Madrid.
Best deal for your money. Got to see a lot places that is included with the card. Highly recommend.
FABULOUS!!!!! We loved the card. It allowed us to go to many museums and sites and not feel obligated to see everything.
If your trip to Madrid will include several museums, get this card. Even if you don't save any money (which may be the case--check online for ticket prices with the individual museums), you will make up for it in convenience of not needing to stand in line to buy tickets. As a tourist, your time in town may be limited--and even if under no time pressure, you didn't travel to Spain in order to stand in line. This card possibly saves you money, but definitely saves you time.
Be sure to note the pick-up locations at either the airport or train station. If you don't get it in those locations, you have to pick up your ticket at the Tourist Office in Plaza Mayor, where a single clerk handles the line of Madrid Card patrons. She's helpful, speaks a bunch of languages, but the line moves S-L-O-W-L-Y.
Thumbs Up on this card.
I paid approximately 75 CAD for a 72 hour pass. With Bernabeu at 16 Euro and all the major museums and palaces at 8 Euro or higher, I may have just broke even on this card, and I am a maniacal planner who is willing to skip meals to see good art. However, I never stood in a line. With the priority access I could walk into any of the major museums and attractions at peak hours and bypass hundreds of people waiting in line. My time is worth it!
