Madrid | Skip-the-Line Guided Prado Museum


Discover the Prado Museum and enjoy a guided tour without queues. During the visit, you will see some of the most important artworks from renowned artist such as el Bosco, El Greco, Velazquez and Goya. At the end of the guided visit, you will be able to stay inside the museum as long as you like. The building that today houses the Prado National Art Museum was designed by the architect Juan de Villanueva in 1785. It was constructed to house the Natural History Cabinet, by orders of King Charles III. However, the building's final purpose - as the new Royal Museum of Paintings and Sculptures - was the decision of the monarch's grandson, King Ferdinand VII, encouraged by his wife Queen Maria Isabel de Braganza. The Prado National Art Museum opened to the public for the first time in November 1819 and now holds one of the most important art galleries in the world. The current exhibition features more than 1.000 paintings from four different centuries, including masterpieces such as The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch, The Nobleman with his hand on his Chest by El Greco, Las Meninas by Velázquez and The Family of Carlos IV by Goya. Given that this can be overwhelming for a first-time visitor, let your guide show you around the site and learn about some of the most important works and their backstories. The guided tour lasts approximately 1 hour 30 minutes and, once finished, you can stay inside the museum for as long as you wish.
