Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Community of Madrid / Madrid / 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.

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia reviews
The museum is for free from 6pm. You can book the tickets online. I was expecting something better. The directions in the museum were quite confusing and the exhibition wasnt that good. The only good.... more »
Very interesting museum of contemporary art. There is a permanent exhibition with the greatest Spanish masters - Dali, Picasso, Miro (it is forbidden to take pictures). There are also temporary... more »
On a rainy Friday, there was nothing to do. I was losing hope but decided to give Reina Sofia a try, the last two hours of the opening hours are free, I just had to stay in line. It took some time... more »
This place is a must-see for whoever likes modern art. The design is by definition modern and makes you think of the Whitney Museum in New York. A lot of things to see (expect at least 4 hours to see everything). Very spacious rooms and not crowded at the end of the day. The bookstore is also nice. And the entrance is free for teachers.
Decent museum for modern art. The highlight is Picasso's Guernica. I'm not sure it's worth the 15 euro entry fee, so many people go at 7pm during the week when the museum offers free entry. Pro-tip: go to the main entrance, not the one by the plaza. It's the covered entrance with the Roy Lichtenstein sculpture is. The line is quicker. Good for modern art from cubism and beyond.
This museum is not that exciting as I thought, to be honest only one floor was interesting. But I liked an outdoor garden area, Miro sculptures and nice architecture design of that building. Just nice to visit for a quick look, better come in a morning to avoid a long line.
MORE A 20TH CENTURY Art Gallery than the Prado. LOTS OF CUBIST works. Some whimsical and fun installations and some just plain weird works/rooms. Some excellent Spanish Civil War themes including Picasso's Guarnica. There is enough interesting material for most people to admire for half a day or even a full day. This isn't the place for you if you like landscapes and religious themes. The Prado covers those areas.
If you are a modern art sucker like me, you MUST go to Reina Sofia. They have a great collection of Picasso and Dalí and other Spanish artists. The place is beautiful, it has a rooftop open and you can have a good view of Madrid. It was a great experience
