    Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Part of a former hospital, the Reina Sofia became gallery space for 20th century art back in the 1990s. On this tour, your guide will introduce you to the different artistic movements showcased here, including abstractionism, cubism, surrealism, and modernism. You’ll come face to face with works by the iconic Pablo Picasso, including his world-changing painting, “Guernica.” You’ll browse works by Joan Miró, like “The Man with a Pipe,” and Salvador Dali’s “Face of the Great Masturbator,” learning about the techniques and strategies they used to create their oftentimes quirky works of art. You’ll discover all about the social and political movements that shaped these artists and their work, including the Spanish Civil War. You’ll leave with a richer understanding of 20th century Spanish art, allowing you to wander confidently through one of the world’s largest contemporary art collections.

Our guide, Marta, was an amazing knowledgeable guide and both myself and my friend know a lot about art. Not only did she know the subject but her comments about history were extremely useful to understand the context and the time when the painter lived. She made our visit to the Reina Sofia Museum an amazing experience.

Another excellent private tour with Marta. Her passion, explanation regarding modern art, and guidance through the museum was excellent. We learned about the history of art, especially around 1890's-WWII. Highly recommend Marta

We had a private tour of the Reina Sofia Museum and also the Museo del Prado. Our guide was Marta and she was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about both the artwork, the city and the history. Highly recommend.

Our guide, Ana, was quite excellent. Ana began by asking us what we were most interested in, then started the tour based on that. This was no scripted tour. Ana was able to thoroughly explain any piece of art that caught our eye and then seamlessly relate it to other pieces in the gallery and the historical context. She did this while moving us through the museum at a comfortable pace, finishing the with complete story of Picasso's Guernica.

Sean Retana, our tour guide, was outstanding! "The ability to affect the quality of the day is the highest form of art..." We saw numerous great art pieces; however, we also experienced Sean Retana's artistic ability as a tour guide; he positively affected the quality of our day! We could not have asked for a better tour experience at The Reina Sofia Museum.

The Best ever !! Absolutely the best experience on our trip to Madrid! Guide was art historian, incredibly knowledgeable! Museum is beautiful, but our guide made tour unforgettable and fun, plus we learn a lot ! We took several tours in Madrid with Babylon Tours since they are the only ones to offer small group tours and private tours in English. I would recommend Babylon Tours to all travelers that are looking for a great simple experience in the best places the city has to offer either in a private tour or in a group in english for no more than 8 guests!

They gave me also a discount code to share and use for any of my upcoming bookings. 1GO434QJ

Turned out we were the only 2 on the tour, so it was tuned to our needs. Jamie was a great guide, very informative. Would never have learned 10% of what we learned without a great guide.
