What You Can Expect

Viator VIP: Early Access to Museo del Prado with Reina Sofia

Enjoy exclusive early access to Madrid's Prado Museum

Depending on the option selected at booking, greet your guide outside of the Prado Museum 10 minutes in advance of your 9am or 9:45am entry time. If you have opted to take a private tour, your itinerary can be customized according to your artistic interests. With your early-access pass in hand, you’ll enter the museum and relish relative solitude and peace in which to admire the art.

Your guide takes you to the museum’s highlights, all the while delivering commentary that contextualizes the art and allows you to appreciate minute details. Marvel at masterworks such as The Annunciation by El Greco, Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights, and Las Meninas by Velazquez, noticing their refined composition and style.

Then, proceed to the Reina Sofia Museum, dedicated to Spanish art of the 20th century. Surreal scenes and cubist masterpieces by luminaries such as Dali, Picasso, and Miro abound here. Learn about each artist’s life and the mediums they use to convey meaning before bidding your guide farewell at the Reina Sofia Museum.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

We were very impressed with our Amigo Tour guide Irene. We really appreciated the depth of her knowledge in Art - both traditional and modern. We normally do not understand Modern Art so much but she made it really very informative at the Reina Sofia that we could understand the meaning and nuances of the paintings and were able to appreciate the same. This is exactly the reason why we take the tours rather than just walk through the museum which will be totally worthless without these inputs from the guides. So thank you Irene , thank you Amigo and Viator !!

The early access tour was wonderful. Our guide conducted the tour in English and was outstanding in his knowledge an expertise of the art, the culture and most important the context in history. seamless. His tour was informative, funny and totally enjoyable. All questions asked were addressed in both languages one of the members also spoke Spanish and he never skipped a beat. I would definitely book again with Viator and the local company Amigo Tours. Thank you for a wonderful time.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Highly recommended! I prefer going to museums with a guide because I feel like I can appreciate the art better when I know the story/history behind them. Prado museum is simply impressive, too bad photos weren't allowed. Our guide was very good at explaining the art and the history.
