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. In the company of a family-friendly guide, our tour engages children with art on a personal level. We enter the lives of the families on display in the museum, from the Holy Family to Las Meninas, learning the stories about the characters represented the way that art has evolved through the centuries. The perfect educational activity in Madrid for kids.

Visit the Prado Museum with Kids

Meeting nearby the museum, your expert guide will learn more about your children and the group's interests as we approach the museum and cater the tour to the group. As qualified art historians, our guides 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 approach 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, amazing finery illustrated in careful detail in many of the works. Along the way, our guides will have interactive stories to keep your kids involved and engaged with the tour.

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

Carlos was a wonderful guide for our tour of the Prado. He helped us navigate what is an overwhelming collection and covered the highlights with interesting facts and background. He was also very patient and accommodating with the 8-yr-old boy in our small, private group. I highly recommend both Context and Carlos
Barbara was an amazing guide! Knowledgeable, friendly, and so patient with the kids. She brought them homemade activity books, so they could follow along at Prado. Truly wonderful experience, and we expect nothing less from Context. Our 3rd country already with you (and with our kids!).
Jesús was so very knowledgeable and very kind. We loved our tour with him! Gracias Jesús por todo!!
