Things to do in Reina Sofia Museum
Also known as the Queen Sofia Museum, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía of Madrid is dedicated to art from the late 19th and 20th centuries.
Initially hosted in the former General Hospital of Madrid building, the national art centre is now located in the so-called Golden Triangle of Art (together with the Museo del Prado and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza) and was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.
Following the building extension and 2005 inauguration, the museum collection, which has more than 18,000 pieces, includes masterpieces by the most important Spanish and international artists, such as Picasso ("Guernica") and Dalí, but also Joan Miró, Juan Gris, Lucio Fontana, Ives Klein, Max Ernst, Robert Delaunay, Yves Tanguy, Georges Braque and many others.
The Reina Sofia also hosts a free-access library of more than 100,000 books, most of them focusing on art. Along with the permanent collections, discover the many temporary exhibitions and public activities that contribute to making the National Museum also a space for research and reflection.
