The museum is very nice and spacious. Impressed by the Picasso, Dali and Miro. Also the modern art is very nice to see. The museum can also be accessed for free between 7 and 9 pm in the evening and on Sunday after 1 pm. This is good to see the museum on several days and spend one hour per... More

Many originals of these 2 Spanish artists adorn the halls. Admission is free on Sunday. Can breeze through in 1.5 Hours. Not to miss if you appreciate this style

You will not want to leave this museum at all; the best museum hands down in Madrid because the collection is less classic and more modern in keeping with what I wanted; Picasso Guernica is the highlight but Miro and Dali paintings are even better in my mind; lots of great sculptures; free wifi. Nice place outside to sit down... More

One of the best museums I´ve visited in Europe. The museum itself is huge, as well as the collections. That ar enot a huge number of masterpieces but you had absolutely the best of the good ones: Picasso, Dali, Miró, Gris, and other classics. The temporary exhibitions were also quite good. You cannot go to Madrid and not visit this... More

This museum houses Picasso's Guernica but there is far more to it than that. It is a converted hospital so has very long corridors and ramps into the rooms on which some people make a lot of noise. There are many great paintings here . Lots of Picassos, Dalis and many other Spanish artists such as Gris and Miro. We... More

The museum was good but not great, and this alone is not enough when compared to the other two museums (Prado and MTB) in Madrid's Golden Triangle of Art. Sure, there were some very good and thoughtful pieces by great artists like Picasso, Dali and Miro (some of Dali's were mind-glowingly good, and there's always Picasso's Guernica). But there were...

We had a blast in that museum, I have seen the famous "Guernica" and much more. For instance, the exposition on feminism was amazing and interesting. Unfortunately, the museum is so big ! So if you are looking forward visiting it, be careful because it takes a certain amount of time ! Free for students !

Must see in this museum: Picasso's Guernica and related drawings and paintings & Miro's paintings and drawings. They are in the same area located centrally on the 2nd floor. There is also a Miro's bronze figure in the garden on the first floor.
