Private Art Tours in Madrid
Madrid is not simple the capital of Spain, it’s an art capital.
We want to invite you to appreciate the art that Madrid has this magnificent capital has to offer.
Art in Madrid
Through our Private Art Tours, you will visit the museums, revel in both the permanent and temporary art exhibitions, and admire the works that touch and inspire you.
Today Madrid is a city bursting with art thanks to the personal collections of the Kings of Spain. From Carlos I (and V of Germany), who was advised by his sister Maria of Hungary and later Felipe II and Felipe IV, began the beautiful tradition of collecting art. Thanks to their commitment and passion Madrid has enjoyed a variety of art for centuries, and a multitude of works and collections from the best painters of every era across the world.
We promise to design an art tour, custom-made for you. Whether you want to focus on one museum especially, or whether you want to experience the allure of the three main museums in one private tour, or a detailed tour of Bosco, Sorolla, Velázquez, Goya, Dalí or Picasso. Whichever your preference, whatever your interest; we can offer you a personalised art experience.
The Secret Language of Art
Madrid Experience organizes a different and unique tour of Madrid’s Prado Museum: a VIP tour centred on the hidden language of art. Of all our tours, this is the only one that comes with a parental advisory…
Private museum tour in Madrid
Discover some of the most important museums in the city, lead by one of our art historians, and observe the charm of each one. As well as three incredibly famous museums there are also lesser-traversed, but equally as engaging, museums such as the Sorolla Museum-House and the Lázaro Galdiano Museum.
The museum with the highest acclaim is the Prado Museum, known for housing the Royal collections that began with Felipe II under one roof, and for the works that have been bought by the state or donated. The most visited museum, however, is the Reina Sofía Museum.
The Prado Museum
The Royal collections have formed what many scholars consider the best painting museum in the world: The Prado Museum. This museum gathers pieces of celebrated artists and is home to the largest acquisition of works by Jerónimos den Bosch and Titian in the world.
Great masters have passed through Prado to study and learn from the techniques of Rembrandt, Velázquez and Bosch, therefore Prado is also considered a museum-school for those committed to their art.
The Reina Sofía Museum
This museum is home of Picasso’s remarkable Guernica and other works of the renowned artist.
Here you can also appreciate pieces by influential Spanish artists such as Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró. It also boasts a vast collection of modern art; with very important works by Miquel Barceló and Juan Muñoz. The Reina Sofía museum is currently the most visited art museum in Spain, surpassing the Prado, and holds the title of eleventh highest revered in the world.
The Thyssen Bornemisza Museum
This is a gallery born from the private collection of Barons Thyssen. It’s an artistic overview; from medieval to contemporary art, of which you can take a tour, including prominent pieces by Joan Miró and Monet.
This private collection was eventually bought by the Spanish government to combine the works of the other state art centres. These three museums – the Prado Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemiszma – form what is called “the art triangle”.
