What makes this tour special
On your private guided tour of the Reina Sofia Museum, you will trace the development of 20th century art through one of Europe's finest collections.
With a private guide, enjoy a rich and immersive experience that brings artwork to life.
Gain expert insight into the history of a vast collection of artifacts and paintings.
Discover the context of some of the artworks and impact of the socio-political climate on the artists’ work.
Relish an unrivalled collection of Spanish contemporary artists, including 4,000 paintings.
When the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía opened its doors in 1990, it won international acclaim for its modernity and scale. Today the museum’s expanded space includes an extra structure, handsome paved plazas and additional cultural space. The imposing permanent collection of 20th-century art is enhanced by ever-changing temporary exhibitions,ensuring it ranks amongst the world’s most impressive modern art museums. Together with the capital’s two other major museums – the Prado Museum and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum – it forms Madrid’s prestigious Golden Triangle of Art.
Explore the works of Spanish contemporary artists Joan Miró, Antoni Tàpies, Pablo Serrano, José Gutierrez Solana, and Juan Gris, Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso. Other stand out artists who are not from Spain include Vasily Kandinsky, Diego Rivera, Max Ernst and Damien Hirst.
Whilst moving through the galleries - a crossroads in objects and time - explore the museum’s style of displaying its pieces, which positions masterpiece paintings side by side with photography, film, sound, design and dance without hierarchy. Learn why certain styles and movements proliferated at different points in the 20th century and examine the impact of the socio-political climate. When you reach Guernica - one of Picasso's finest works - explore why the artist would have preferred it be on display at the Prado.
