You will have all the information regarding access, services and conditions of the visit on your mobile and you can easily change the date and time of the visit, after purchase.
The Prado Museum, with more than 22 million euros in income from ticket sales, thanks to this tool you will be able to plan and anticipate the needs of visitors, helping to make your experience exceptional from the first digital contact they have with the gallery. . For Miguel Falomir, director of the Museo Nacional del Prado, “the role of Telefónica, as Benefactor of the Visitor Service program, has been fundamental in this process of digital transformation of the Prado.
