  • This world-famous museum is a former hospital, now filled with 20th-century Spanish art - including works by Picasso, Dalí and Miró
  • These Express Lane tickets get you into this remarkable museum faster and​ cheaper than buying at the door
  • See Picasso’s powerful and moving anti-war mural Guernica​, quite possibly Spain's most famous artwork

Housed in a former hospital, the world famous Reina Sofía Arts Center 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.

Pity and Terror: Picasso’s Path to Guernica (April 5 – September 4)

This exhibition, on the 2nd floor of the Sabatini building, is an insightful look at Picasso’s depiction of modern warfare and the ambivalence of his treatment of violence and sexuality. Guernica itself is a painting of an interior world collapsing thanks to a bomb, and the dark themes in general make for a fascinating journey into Picasso's mind.

The exhibition built on loans from the Musée Picasso in Paris, Tate Modern, Centre George Pompidou, MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum, and more.

Those on the desk were confused as to which line we were in
We had to return twice from the xray machine to get our correct piece of paper
Not a Tiqet problem though as we had a dream run at Prado

Amazing collection- loved how there were newsreels & other media from the time to set the works in context. Well worth a visit for Guernica alone.

Muy fácil de reservar y no perdí nada de tiempo en la entrada. Ver el Guernica se deberia hacer al menos una vez al año!
