Queen Sofia Arts Center - Review

16th century onwards, this was a big old hospital, and it became bigger and more sprawling as needs expanded. There was talk of tearing it down, but a 1977 decree declared the building a National Historic Monument. Today, it’s one of Europe’s top centres of 20th century art, and a half bad centre of 19th century art. Other exhibits are just as excellent – these include a photo collection of the Spanish Civil War. Masters represented here include all the greats - Dali, Picasso, Miro and Guernica.

The bookshop has some excellent collections. The cafe is nice. The restaurant is yummy, if pricey. The most popular painting here is Picasso’s Guernica. The museum creates a strange vibe – it’s drab ancient form contrasts with the vivid artwork.

  • Whilst not as famous as the Prado, the Reine Sofia Museum is definitely a not-to-miss attraction for art lovers. For a very reasonable €10 each you will get to see some stunning pieces of art. There is a huge collection of Picasso which is very impressive and a really good selection of Dali my personal favourite. Note - seniors (over-65) take your passport for free entry and teachers take ID cards because they might also quality for free entry to many Spanish art galleries

  • Great Museum,great service and excellent presentation of the art objects the only problem I had was time to see everything and to get more information about certain objects or the exhibition they presentate. I liked the Russian Dada presentation, the sculpture in the patio and very much the object of watching time at the second floor. But there are also so much very good paintings that there is enough to walk around for 2 or 3 days without getting bored. Very friendly crew and even the restaurant is excellent - worth all the time you spend there.

  • This museum has some very detailed galleries and exhibits; if there's something you're particularly interested in and the Reina Sofia has a related exhibit, definitely go see it. The attention to detail in their collections is very high. I also really like the Calder sculpture in the gardens behind the museum.

  • It's pretty cool. They have different exhibits and honestly the art is inspiring. It has 4 floors but unless you're an art enthusiast, you may not want to visit all the floors or sections. There is alot of walking around and after a while, it sounds like a good time to eat. Theres so much to do around and to eat as well. It's a great place to cross off the bucket list!

  • We were looking forward to visit this wonderful art display of surrealist work by the masters of the time in this absolutely tremendous layout. We took an excellent guided tour which made the journey through this gallery all the more educational and enjoyable. I enjoyed this much more than Prado, but hey, that's my opinion. A must see!
