"Modern Art" Reina Sofia Museum Tip by Urzu

Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid: 52 reviews and 76 photos


If you are in an "arty" mood, before or after visiting the Prado Museum you should definitelly visit the Reina Sofia Museum, which contains the more modern side of art, including paintings, sculptures, drawings and photography from artists such as: Picasso, Joan Miro, Dali, Juan Gris, etc. An IMPORTANT fact is that if you like Picasso you should NOT miss the Reina Sofia, since the painting Guernica is there permanently (can't be moved because it's too fragile), and cannot be seen anywhere else! If you ask me this painting MUST be seen, it's breathtaking and if you like modern art you probably won't regret it. The sculpture and montages and to say the least very interesting. Also they have included a little section of the museum dedicated to surrealism, with apart from the usual things the showing of Buñuel's films which I find very interesting! And the temporary exhibitions, the past few times I've been there have never disappointed me! The museum is very enjoyable, there is nothing boring about it.
The entrance is EUR 6.- . Opening time from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 21:00. The entrance will be free of charge on Saturdays from 14:30 to 21:00, and Sundays from 10:00 to 14:30.
