What to expect

The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía of Madrid is dedicated to late 19th and 20th century art. Also known as the Queen Sofia Museum, it is located in the so-called Golden Triangle of Art not far from the world-famous Museo del Prado and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.

The Queen Sofia Museum was first hosted in the 16th century San Carlos Hospital building. The collection was made up of works displayed at the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art. After some restoration work, the Permanent Collection was inaugurated on September 10th 1992 by Their Majesties King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia (Sabatini building). As the collection and temporary exhibits kept increasing, they decided to extend the museum surface, which led to the 2005 inauguration of a new building, created by French architect Jean Nouvel.

The collection includes around 20,000 works of art and masterpieces by Spanish and international artists. Here you will find works by Picasso and Dalí, but also Joan Miró, Juan Gris, Lucio Fontana, Ives Klein, Max Ernst, Robert Delaunay, Yves Tanguy, Georges Braque and many more.

IMPORTANT: On Sundays the museum is open from 10:00am to 7.00pm. The sale of tickets at the ticket office will finish at 2.00pm, apart from advanced bookings. Entrance to the museum will be free starting at 1.30pm.
