The Madrid Card, offered by Neoturismo, includes pre-paid admission to more than 50 museums, plus places like the Real Madrid Stadium, Faunia Nature Park, Madrid Cable Car, and Zoo Aquarium of Madrid. Free “Discover Madrid” walking tours are included, and are a great way to get oriented to the city and see the major sites. The Madrid Vision hop-on-hop-off tourist bus is also included. You also get many discounts on eating and shopping. You can add the Tourist Travel Pass for unlimited transportation on underground, bus, and the suburban Cercanias bus lines.

It’s available in 24-, 48-, and 72-hour increments starting at €32 for a 24-hour card with no transportation extras. You have up to a year from the date of purchase to activate your card. It’s activated the first time you use it and you can visit each attraction once during the life of the card.

It comes with a guidebook with detailed information in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. Additional benefits include up to 50% off car rental, free drink tickets at several nightclubs.

SPECIAL NOTE: The Madrid Card is under new management. We suggest you try the Flexi Attractions Pass or Unlimited Attractions Pass from iVenture Madrid.

What’s Good?

This pass is best for museumgoers who also want the hop-on-hop-off Madrid Vision bus. If you’re not interested in the Madrid Vision tourist bus, check out the Madrid Cultura Card.

The Madrid Vision bus gets high marks from many travelers who have used the Madrid Card.

What Could get better?

You’d have to see three museums in one day, plus take the Madrid Vision tour, to get your money’s worth from a 24-hour card.

The Madrid Vision tourist bus is different from the public transportation available with add-on transport option, so you’ll have to do some research to decide which you’re more likely to use.

Get Your Money’s Worth

Your card is activated the first time you use it for admission, discounts, or transport, and it’s good for however many consecutive hours you’ve purchased. For example, a 24-hour card that is first used at 2pm on Thursday is good until 2pm on Friday.

A lot of Madrid Museums have days of the week or hours of the day that they’re free to all. If your travel is flexible, you may be able to plan to visit during these times, but they’ll be crowded.

Insider Tips

In addition to free admission, you can skip the lines at the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, and the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum.

It’s recommended to make reservations for dining and show your card when asking for the check.
