Reina Sofia Museum: Home to Picasso's 'Guernica’

Visit this stunning museum located in the heart of Madrid, Spain. Renowned for its outstanding collection of modern and contemporary art. It is home to masterpieces by iconic artists such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, and Joan Miró, the Reina Sofia Museum invites you on a journey through the evolution of 20th-century art.

Things to know before booking your tickets to Reina Sofia

  • See Picasso's Guernica Up Close and Feel the Raw Emotions: The Reina Sofia Museum houses the iconic painting Guernica by Pablo Picasso. This powerful piece of art depicts the horrors of war and the bombing of the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. Seeing this masterpiece up close allows you to appreciate the artist's masterful use of black, white, and grey tones, the distorted figures conveying the suffering, and the overall sense of chaos and destruction.
  • To Delve into Spanish Modern and Contemporary Art Beyond Picasso: While Guernica is a major draw, Reina Sofia boasts an extensive collection of 20th-century Spanish art. Explore works by Salvador Dalí, the master of Surrealism, and his dreamlike landscapes. Get up close to Joan Miró's whimsical and playful sculptures and paintings. Immerse yourself in the works of Spanish artists who grappled with the social and political upheavals of the 20th century.
  • Be Surprised by Unexpected Architectural Elements: The Reina Sofia Museum itself is a fascinating architectural experience. Originally a 16th-century hospital, the building was transformed into a museum in the 1990s. The modern Nouvel Building with its glass and steel facade stands in stark contrast to the original brick structure. As you navigate the museum, be sure to look up and around to appreciate the unique blend of architectural styles.
  • Take a Break in the Serene Setting of the Buen Retiro Park: The Reina Sofia Museum has two annexes located within the sprawling Buen Retiro Park, a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. After you've explored the main museum, head to the Palacio de Velázquez and Palacio de Cristal for a tranquil change of pace. These exhibition halls made of glass and iron house temporary exhibits of modern and contemporary art. Take a stroll through the manicured gardens or rent a rowboat on the lake for a relaxing break in the heart of Madrid.
