Located on the Paseo del Prado, one of Madrid’s main boulevards envisaged in the 18th century as a garden to be enjoyed by citizens, are three of the world’s most important art galleries: the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofía museums, turning the area into a veritable art walk.

This app takes you on a pleasant tour of 24 works considered essential for understanding the history of western art, from the Middle Ages to the present day.

In addition, you can use this Android and iOS-compatible app to purchase the Art Walk Pass, a simple and convenient method that will enable you to visit each one of the permanent collections displayed at the three museums (Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Reina Sofía). Pass holders can enjoy priority admission, so no need to waste time queuing, plus a 20% discount.

Don’t forget that your pass with the tickets to enter the three museums can be collected from the ticket office at the museum where you purchased them online.
