Tour Description
The world-renowned Museo del Prado contains some of the greatest masterpieces in Western art. Our 2.5-hour Prado Museum for Kids private tour, featuring skip-the-line tickets, introduces children to its collection, which was predominantly commissioned and procured by the Spanish royal family. We enter the lives of the families on display in the museum, from the Holy Family to Las Meninas, learning stories about the characters representing how art has evolved through the centuries. 

As qualified art historians, our experts know the museum inside and out. Through looking at specific works, we will extract the essence of the meaning and composition of family units through art and learn about the transition of art techniques and approaches as they evolved over the eras.

Each work of art tells a story: of a character, history, or even courageous feats. We will be introduced to some Spanish historical figures, especially Spain's royal family. We will seek out various symbols in the artworks, each one revealing more about the figures depicted, their time period, and society. We may also look at the evolution of fashion, and amazing finery illustrated in careful detail in many of the works.

Looking for a closer look at how Spain's royal family lived? We recommend our Madrid to El Escorial day trip.

FAQ About the Prado Museum for Kids Tour

What are skip-the-line tickets?
For this tour, your tickets are pre-purchased which allows you to skip the ticket office line upon arrival at the museum. You may still have to wait in a security line or in a line to have your pre-purchased ticket scanned.  

Is this tour wheelchair-accessible?
The museum is accessible to wheelchairs with the exception of certain areas connected to the Villanueva building due to its design. Please contact us to discuss in more detail your mobility concerns so that we can best advise; we are also happy to discuss possible adjustments for clients with mobility concerns.

There are 7 or more people in my group but your website won't allow me to include more than 6 participants. Can't you make an exception?
No, unfortunately due to venue reservation restrictions we cannot accommodate groups larger than 6 people. If your group is larger, we recommend you split into multiple groups.

This tour was such a great way to see the Prado!
Super knowledgeable, kind and great with kids!
We loved our museum tour - we and our two children, 10 and 12, learned so much. I would say it wasn’t entirely geared toward children, which is not a problem for us. It’s a more high level tour, so your kids need to be able to handle a three hours of walking/talking at a more adult level. Susana was so wonderful for us. Thank you.
