Top ways to experience Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.

Terrible art collections promoting Communism and Leninist dictatorship in Europe. I thought I was in North Korea.

Even if you are not a modern art "fan",
even if you are not "into art",
Guernica (Picasso) is a MUST SEE historical commentary.

From the glass-encased exterior elevators to the enclosed courtyard gallery to the pieces themselves, this is a wonderful museum. Unlike other large museums, it was easy to navigate among the works and themes.

Great place to enjoy art but VERY confusing to navigate and long queues on free evenings. Expect a great cultural experience but complex delivery.

This museum has an interesting mix of modern art in one building and then older, 20th-century art in the original building. The collection of Goya, Dali, Miro, and Picasso paintings is very impressive. We purchased our tickets on-line, which were good for any time of the day. This is a must-see while in Madrid and I highly recommend visiting this museum.

The museum was good but bring coin EUROs in order to pay for lockers. Otherwise you will have to carry your bags and coats.

This museum is focused on modern and contemporary art. We didn't connect to most of the exhibits there. However, there are some incredible paintings by Picasso, Daly and other famous artists, which are worth the visit there. If you really need to see the Guernica painting by Picasso, then go there. Otherwise, focus on the other museums.

Loved the Picassos here - and the temporary exhibitions. A more modern view of the art world and definitely worth a visit to see Guernica, Picasso's anti-war piece. The garden in the centre of the museum was peaceful and a great place to take a break from a busy weekend of sightseeing.
