Ratings and Reviews
The Prado Deserves Better
The quality of the reproductions is disappointing. If you don't think so, look at the Leonardo (which you have to pay an extra dollar for) and then look at the Rembrandt self portrait.
Needs internet connection
Needs an Internet connection to work. There is no Wi-Fi at the museum, except at the cafeteria. So it seems like the only practical way to use this app is to download the off-line material before visiting. The offline material couldn’t be downloaded while at the museum, so this was a complete waste to me.
Not usable at the museum.
