Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia


Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia

Calle de Santa Isabel 52, Madrid

No visit to Madrid is complete without a stroll around the marvelous Renia Sofía. While there are hundreds of incredible pieces of art on display, what you and your kids need to do is stand before Picasso’s massive, moving, monumental Guernica.

Read to them from the placards in English; read about what Picasso did, what it meant and what it still means as we all hurtle anxiously into an unknowable future. You will be changed.


Closed on Tuesdays; open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Things to Know/Bring

Enter the museum after 7 p.m. for free (but be aware the queues to take advantage of the 100-percent discount can be severe). Kids ages 18 and under get in free always.
