During the tour, your guide will stop in front of paintings by Spanish masters such as Velazquez, Goya and El Greco, and comment on the history, technique and fun facts that hide behind these artworks.

But the works of these 3 world-famous Spanish painters are not the only masterpieces you and your children will discover. Follow our guide as they will also take you to see renowned Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch and his “Garden of Earthly Delights, as well as works by Italian painter Tintoretto, Belgian artist Rubens and more!

Needless to say that the Prado’s most famous highlight,Las Meninas” by Velazquez is also part of the list of masterpieces you will see along the way.

FAQ's

Is this tour private?
Yes, it is. No one else will be joining your private tour, and you will have your own private guide throughout the visit. However, there will be other people visiting the museum at the same time.
When is the best time to visit the Prado Museum?
During the summer season, the Prado can be very crowded. It is better to come at the opening of the museum or later in the afternoon.
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
We recommend this museum visit for kids aged 6 or older, because they must know how to read and write in order to enjoy the fun-filled game booklet. Younger children can participate, but they will need the help of the parents or older siblings to finish the quest.
Will we have to wait in line?
We provide skip-the-line tickets, but on very busy days, there might be a line for security checks which cannot be avoided. The wait should not last long though.
Once the tour is finished, can we stay inside the museum or go back in?
Of course, you are free to stay inside the museum if you wish to continue exploring this beautiful museum. Our tour cannot cover all the beautiful works of art on display here, so we can only encourage you to stay. However, if you exit the building, you cannot go back in.
Can I bring a stroller or a wheelchair?
Yes, the Prado Museum is wheelchair and stroller friendly. There are elevators to bring people with reduced mobility to the upper floors.
Will my teenage kids like the tour?
Sure, they will! They might not want to have the game booklet, but since it is a private tour, our professional guide will adapt their speech to keep your teenagers engaged and entertained throughout the tour.
