Home to Picasso’s Guernica and a whole lot more Modern Art. Be prepared to tilt your head out of curiosity.
Don’t forget to admire the famous Picasso’s Guernica. A lot of interesting Dali’s pieces
Great art and if you're a student under 25 it's free! The courtyard is very peaceful.
Although is the layman, but came to Madrid cannot miss Sophie and prado museum. Do the homework in advance, so I was headed to 206 on the second floor hall after go in. A giant painting of Picasso "guernica" are listed in this. Although also seen on the net, but still can from this pair of black and white ash handed down a masterpiece in endless gloom and sorrow. The whole Sophia like 206 hall can''t take pictures, a variety of reasons I don''t really understand. After watching the "guernica" national treasure works by goya, you can also see Spain.
The Reina Sofia museum was originally a hospital that was redesigned and converted into one of the world's leading modern art museums. From the breathtaking architecture outside of the building to the beautiful glass elevators, you'll be impressed before you even step inside. Once you go through the doors you can see a huge collection of works that inspired movements, including many from Salvador Dalí and Picasso. The museum's most famous piece is Picasso's "El Guernica" which leaves a lasting impression considering its theme and sheer size. The museum is a must-see even for Budget Travellers as some days there is free entry!
My favourite museum in Madrid, this contemprary art museum is located in the Paseo del Arte area. Fabulous exhibitons and names such as Dali, Miro, Picasso, Rothke,etc everywhere. The famous Picasso's painting Guernica is there and it's absolutelly incredible. Loved it and it is a good choice for contemporany art lovers!
Well, being free and having Guernica alone makes it great. The lines were surprisingly short compared to the Prada and the elevator outside was an added bonus. Some un-signed Picasso's seem to interest a group of English speaking weirdos but that was all part of the art. So fun, highly recommend. Close by are numerous bars and it is right across the roadway from the train station so you can't miss it. I loved it.
