there are certain days and times that the museum has free entry. The line was long, but moved quickly and we were able to see amazing art for FREE! GO!

The museum has a very large collection of modern art. Picasso's Guernica is it most famous piece. I'm not much of a modern art lover, so most of the collection was not really my taste. But the museum does have a lot of good points....More

While visiting Madrid, me and my husband wanted to see Picasso's famous Guernica, which is displayed in Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. The museum is an interesting new building, that enables many free admissions (among other to the persons over age of 65),...More

A very big museum, making it impossible to see everything in one visit. You may wanna come back a second time. Guernica by Pablo Picasso is definitely a must see but there is so much more and the artworks are well divided according to periods.

I'll preface this by saying that my interest in art wanes rapidly after the Impressionists, so the Reina Sofia ended up being a disappointment for me. You can see Picasso's Guernica here, a handful of Dali's and Miro's, and lots of art after 1900. If...More

Some highlights include Guernica by Picasso and the work by Dali, but there are quite some rooms with less interesting expositions. However, art is in the eye of the beholder and a personal thing. So maybe others have a different opinion. Structure of the building...More

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

I would purchase all tickets online before you go. If you go to the Sophia on free night, it is just a guess. We walked right in and got a ticket, even though it was free. I guess that is the way that they track... More
