Nice museum but you really do have to love modern art to enjoy this. They have the big names like Picasso and Dali but some of the art from more recent years gets pretty unusual!

If you had to visit only one art museum in Madrid, this is a best bet - but as world-wide museums go, it's only average, so don't visit with great expectations. However, it is worthwhile to visit, if only to view the magnificent 'Guernica' -...More

If you like modern art, you will love this museum! We spent over two hours there and could easily have spent twice that amount of time.

There was no line to buy tickets mid-day on a Saturday. The museum generously provides free tickets to students. It was well worth it to purchase an audio guide as well! The majority of the collection is on the second floor (Guernica, Dali’s “The Masturbator”,...More

The Guernica is the main attraction of the Reina Sofia and the art gallery feels nicely themed around this central piece. Featuring work predominantly just before, during and just after Pablo Picasso's work it gives a great insight into the art landscape at this time...More

It is a shame that to have restriction to take photos in 2nd floor. Most of the good artworks from Dali, Picasso and Miro are on the 2nd floor. Science and art are not monopolized by anyone.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
