  • Discover one of the largest art collections in Spain covering art from the 15th to the 21st centuries
  • Admire works by some of the greatest artists in history like Goya and Arcimboldo
  • Be surprised by the number of masterpieces there are to discover in this relatively unknown museum

The permanent collection of the Academy includes masterpieces of Spanish, Italian and Flemish art. Visitors can enjoy works such as the only Arcimboldo preserved in Spain, impressive paintings by Goya such as The Tyrant and the famous Burial of the Sardine, works by Leandro Bassano, Mengs, Ribera, Rubens, Tintoretto, Van Loo, Zurbarán and the splendid The Gentleman's Dream by Pereda.

The 19th century is represented by the portraits of Vicente López, José de Madrazo, and Federico de Madrazo, as well as the romantic works of Esquivel and the landscapes of Haes. The 20th century deserves special attention as it allows us a vision of modern art, a journey that ranges from Sorolla to the current avant-garde, through the regionalism of Sotomayor, the portraits of Vázquez Díaz and the landscapes of Benjamín Palencia and Francisco Lozano. The museum also offers an important collection of casts and sculptures dating from the 17th century.

Show your smartphone ticket at the ticket office, located at the entrance of the museum (reduced and free tickets holders must present the corresponding accreditation).

Beautiful museum. Begin on Floor 3 and work your way down. The Goya etchings on the ground floor are phenomenal. Such a treat. An absolute treasure of a museum and not too big or overwhelming

Great collection from historical to recent. Helps to know that the earlier works are on the lowest floor of the museum, the more recent as one goes to higher floors.

Good Gallery, calm and peaceful to walk round. We went for the paintings rather than sculptures and it still took us two hours to get round. Great value.
