Our guide to Prado Museum Skip-the Line Ticket

Enjoy a 1.5-hour tour and skip past the normal ticket line at one the world's great museums, the Museo del Prado.

Considered to house one of the finest art collections on the globe, it displays thousands of European paintings, sculptures, and other works of art throughout its halls - and this is only a fraction of the collection!

The Prado specializes in European art from the 12th-19th century (Madrid's Reina Sofia Museum is home to the post-19th century art) and was built from the Spanish Royal Collection.

The most famous piece in the collection that is on display at the Prado is Las Meninas by Diego Velazquez. The artist dedicated many of his own pieces to the museum and had a hand in obtaining several works from great Italian painters as well. In tribute to Velazquez, his statue is one of the few marking the entrances to the museum.

The Museo Nacional del Prado, opened to the public for the first time in November 1819. The Museum's first catalogue, published in 1819, included 311 paintings, although at that time its collection comprised just over 1,510 pictures from the various Reales Sitios (Royal Residences).

You will meet your guide 15 minutes prior to your tour where you will receive your priority-access admission to Prado Museum, allowing you to skip the normal ticket line and head straight inside. The tour will end inside the museum, so you can continue exploring the museum at your leisure.
