What to expect

The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía of Madrid is dedicated to art of the late 19th and 20th centuries. Also known as the Queen Sofía 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 Reina Sofía 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 10 September 1992 by Their Majesties King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía (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 the 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.
