I see on pg 469 of the RS Spain 2020 that the Reina Sofia is free if over 65. Is this every day? My experience in trying to get the "wisdom discount" in most places in Europe is that it is limited to citizens of EU. Anyone with recent experience with this?
My mom-in-law (US citizen) received the senior discount (free, as I remember) when we went in April 2018. She did need to show her passport as proof of age.
ETA: my son also received the disabled discount (free, again as I remember — we visited a lot of places that trip and I may be off on the specific rate), my husband received the disabled companion discount (free), and my 14-year old daughter received the student discount (free? Or close to free). I’m the only one who paid full price.
So the Reina Sofia honored all discounts for us even though we are US citizens. We found this to be true wherever we went in Spain.
We got the senior discount at Reina Sofia and the Prado by showing our passports or drivers licenses. Seems like we got senior discounts in the Netherlands, as well.
We were free due to my husband’s disability and I as the companion.
Bring your passport....seniors (65+) are admitted free and there are no entry fees for anyone on Sunday afternoons after 13:30.
Spain is the only country where we always got the over 62 discount upon showing the passport. Other countries were limited to EU residents with an occasional discount when they were feeling generous.
The free entry for over 65 is everyday, and according to the website, you will need to show a photo ID.
Thanks so much for the input. And thanks to Spain for recognizing US citizens over 62! Wish other countries would. Not all US retirees have deep pockets.
