What to expect

The Reina Sofia Museum was officially opened on September 10, 1992, and was named after the former Queen of Spain, Sofia. The museum exhibits mainly works of Spanish art, focusing on the three greatest painters of the 20th century in Spain: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró. The museum's most famous masterpiece is the painting that Picasso painted for the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937, “El Guernica"

Due to the temporary restrictions that the Museum has implemented after the crisis of Covid 19, the guided tour inside the building is not allowed. But if you book this tour, you will be able to take an external tour with a guide for approximately 45 minutes, prior to your access to the museum, with which you will learn all the necessary information to enjoy your visit to the fullest. In addition, you will be provided with the necessary documentation so that you can find all the works you wish to visit and be guided when exploring the galleries on your own.

Before entering the Museum, the guide will explain this period of Spanish art, from abstractionism to cubism, surrealism and modernism, showing you the most important work of the main artists. The museum is housed in an old building that used to be a hospital, and its halls are the ideal place to discover many of the most avant-garde painters and sculptors in Spain. In addition, you will be provided with the necessary documentation so that you can find all the works you wish to visit and be guided when exploring the galleries on your own. The museum has the most extensive collection of modern art in Spain, and also offers temporary international exhibitions in its many galleries, making it one of the largest museums in the world of contemporary art.
