Create an itinerary including Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia
Take a journey through modern art at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, which features some of contemporary art’s most revered works, including those from famous Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. The museum is mainly dedicated to Spanish art of the 20th century, but the extensive collection includes works by a number of international artists, including Max Ernst, Robert Delaunay, Richard Serra, and Francis Bacon, to name just a few. The museum’s many galleries often play host to a mixture of national and international temporary exhibits, while the on-site free-access library contains an impressive collection of over 100,000 art books. The galleries displaying the permanent collection are spread over two floors, so if you’re looking for a specific work, save time by picking up a copy of the museum’s floor plans from the information desk at the entrance.

  • This is the BEST art museum that Madrid has to offer. It is truly exceptional. My wife and I spent about three hours here and still did not get to see it all. You need multiple visits to truly experience everything. One day we will come back to Madrid and finish what we started.
  • One of the most famous art museums in Europe, the Reina Sofia has iconic works of modern art from famous painters such as Dali and Picasso. Guernica even has its own room! Other modern artists have pretty impressive art pieces hanging on the walls of this museum as well. The halls are spacious and the building itself is quite large. It’s a good place to spend a few hours in. There was a long line to buy tickets, so I simply stood outside and opened their website on my phone. I bought my tickets right away and with that, I entered the museum without waiting in that long line. Buy your tickets online if you can.
