Housed in a former hospital, the world famous Museo Reina Sofía is a modern art museum with a diverse and fascinating collection of 20th century Spanish art, from Picasso to Solana.

Remodeled and converted into a museum in 1992, this 18th-century hospital holds Madrid’s premier collection of contemporary art. The centerpiece is Picasso’s Guernica, arguably Spain’s single-most famous artwork.

The Reina Sofía also holds works by the other 20th century titans of Spanish art, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró. The collection principally spans the 20th century up to the 1980s. There are a few pieces from non-Spaniard artists, including Francis Bacon’s Lying Figure, but the focus of the collection is quite solidly Spain.

In addition to the paintings, the museum also boasts an impressive collection of sculptures, including some colorful and distinctive works by Miró, and a bust of Picasso by Pablo Gargallo.

The crown jewel of the Reina Sofía is undoubtedly Picasso's Guernica in Room 206 on the 2nd floor. But some other paintings move from time to time, and thus can be harder to track. The Reina Sofía organizes works by theme, so in order to see all of the Dalí's, you could conceivably need to cover a fair amount of ground.

Great. I've never had any problems when booking through tickets.

Easy to purchase, easy to get in and see all that the museum had to offer. The crowds weren't overwhelming and no trouble getting an up close look at Picasso's work.

It was great, but sadly didn't have long enough to do just to the visit. It was reasonably priced and found the staff engaging and communicate. I especially loved seeing the Gallery Guides work with the school parties.
