Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Aug 03, 2011
Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is a museum in Madrid, Spain that is dedicated to spanish art. the museum was founded in 1992 and named after Reina Sofía, the reigning queen of spain.

the museum is a huge complex of artworks from the great spanish and hispanic artists - but the highlight of the museum are the collections from Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso and the centerpiece of the museum is the masterpiece of Pablo Picasso himself: Guernica. but the one thing that suprised and made me proud as someone from the Philippines was the inclusion of a spanish-filipino artist: Fernando Zóbel.

the museum is located near the atocha station in madrid in the "Triángulo del Arte" that includes Museo del Prado and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. the museum cost only 6 euros but the good thing is that it is free on thursdays for the public - so be there early so that you can avoid the long line.

the museum has also a giftshop - bit expensive though, but it is very worth it to buy things from there - from pens, to notepads with covers of the artworks of the masters.

i highly recommend visiting the museum if you are in madrid - and it takes more than a day to see all the artworks!

One of the best I have been to - I was there when they had a contemporary exhibition from Taschen as well. It was the best modern art exhibition I have ever seen.
