    Modern art at its best!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Classical arts are very popular in Madrid, to the point where you might forget that some of Spain's most influential painters are actually from the 20th century! To immerse yourself in the world of Picasso, Dali, Miro & co., I highly recommend a visit to the Reina Sofia museum. I believe that even those who are not too familiar with modern arts will enjoy their visit. Again, this museum is organized in chronological order and according to the major movements that have shaped the arts over the course of the last 100 years or so, which makes for a nice progression towards the most modern and abstract pieces.

    It took me about 4 hours to make it through the permanent collection. If you want to take a break and head out for lunch, there's a nice plaza surrounding the museum, and there's also a nice inner courtyard. The museum is closed on Tuesdays, open from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm on Sundays (and it's free!), and from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm the rest of the week. Admission: 6 Euros.

    An 18th. Century building that was renovated during the 1980's to house Spains National modern art collections. Probably its most famous painting is Picasso's 'Guernica', but many other pieces of his work, as well as the works of many other popular Artist's such as Dali and Miro. It is located very close the Prado Museum and Atocha railway station.

    Have a look at the inner garden, go to the 4th floor by elevator and enjoy the view, see photos by Robert Capa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Capa) - they impressed me deeply.

    This museum houses all the contemporary artists of Spain from the 20th century on. Most importantly it has my favorite artist, Pablo Picasso.
