Full Description
  • With your guide, head inside the museum before it opens its main doors. You’ll be among the first to enter on this Viator VIP, so you can enjoy the art without the crowds that appear later in the day. Stroll around to see some of the best-known treasures and discover the history of the neoclassical building, commissioned by King Charles III in the late 18th century.
  • View master works such as The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, The Annunciation by El Greco and Velazquez’s Las Meninas. Listen as your guide recounts the stories behind each piece, and shares observations about their composition and style.
  • Next, visit the Reina Sofía Museum, another of Madrid’s premier galleries and one that is dedicated to 20th-century Spanish art.
  • Follow your guide through the museum, converted from a hospital building, and view pieces by luminaries such as surrealist Joan Miro and cubist Juan Gris.
  • Marvel at Picasso’s masterpiece of Guernica, and ogle works by surrealist Salvador Dali. Learn about each artist’s life and the abstractions they used to convey meaning. After around six hours in total, your tour ends.
