Museo Reina Sofía

Museum Open in this Schedule Check location

Named after Queen Sofía, the Museo de Arte Reina Sofia exhibits works from two of the greatest 20th-century masters, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí.

“Guernica”, a large oil painting on canvas by Picasso depicting the bombing of the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War, is one of the main attractions, but there’s a lot more to see inside the building originally built to host the first general hospital of Madrid.

The permanent collection, mainly dedicated to 20th century art, is divided into three: utopias and conflicts, with fine examples of Cubism, Dadaism and Surrealism; the post-war world, a period of artistic transformation due to the polarization of the world into United States versus Soviet Union and finally the period from 1960s to the 1980s, when art started to represent the feminist movement, decolonization and technological changes.

As many other Madrid museums, the Museo de Arte Reina Sofia also has free of charge days: Sunday from 1:30pm to 7:00pm and Monday and Wednesday to Saturday from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
