Museo Nacional Del Prado

The Museo Nacional del Prado is the main Spanish national art museum, located in central Madrid. It houses collections of European art, dating from the 12th century to the early 20th century, based on the former Spanish royal collection, and the single best collection of Spanish art.

The Prado, with the nearby Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Museo Reina Sofía, form Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art, which was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2021.

The Challenge

The Museo Nacional del Prado did not have an audio guide service and wanted to offer visitors a system through which they could obtain information on all the most outstanding works and exhibitions featured in this museum. 

The del Prado features three access gates that allow visitors to enter and exit. The solution had to coordinate significant logistics for the installation and operation, such as security protocols. 

The Solution

As part of the installation, Museummate included three audio guide service desks, distributed at each of the access doors to the Museum. 

To facilitate the visit to such a large and rich Collection, organized in the Rooms by the different Pictorial Schools, an exhaustive selection of Works was carried out in close collaboration with the Curators. 

To facilitate the visit to the Museo Nacional del Prado, the Service provided each visitor, together with their Audio Guide, with a map showing the distribution of the 120 most outstanding works in the Collection.

The Result

The Museum hosts temporary exhibitions related to its theme and has a large permanent exhibition showcasing just some of the vast collection of 8,200 drawings, 7,600 paintings, 4,800 prints, and 1,000 sculptures, in addition to many other works of art and historic documents. 

The Guidoo Comfort reflects the spirit of the Museum, bringing the historical and significant masterpieces to life through immersive audio content.
