The Basics

The superb collection of art housed within the Reina Sofia Museum makes it one of Madrid’s most popular attractions. An adventure through the gallery begins with a ride up the glass elevator, which provides views of the plaza and buildings below. The second floor houses the permanent collection, broken up into about 10 rooms, while the top floor is taken up with works from artists of the 1980s, as well as those of international artists. Visitors can take a guided tour for enhanced insight into the art on display, or opt for skip-the-line or early-access tours to avoid long waits and beat the crowds. A visit to this museum is often combined with the Prado Museum and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum; the three make up Madrid’s “Golden Triangle of Art” and are within walking distance.

Reina Sofía Museum Guided Tour - 6 people maximum - In English
Fernando, the guide, had fluent English. The tour was very interesting both for us, the parents and also for our 13 years old daughter who joined the tour. Explanations on the various paintings added to our knowledge and helped us to navigate through the large amount of items in Reina Sophia

Prado Museum with Reina Sofia Museum Guided Tour
My tour was excellent but interrupted as I had a medical emergency due to a reaction to medication. Is there a way to forward my contact details to the lovely lady guide that did the Prado/Rayna tour on Wednesday 9 /22 at 945a? I believe her name was Stephanie? She was the lead guide and spoke English. I want to apologize to her in person - my phone is 1-540-679-650 Please advise if possible.

Skip the Line: Ticket for the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid
Regarding this specific booking -- the ticket was emailed within 24 hrs of my visit as stated, and I had no problems having the code scanned at the door. No complaints about the service provided at all. But as an FYI, I would note for anyone planning to visit the Reina Sofia Museum to review the status of the current exhibits ahead of time, as when I went at the beginning of Sept 2021, only about half the museum was actually open and it was nearly empty of visitors (so no line to actually skip).

Private Tour Prado Museum + Reina Sofía
Amazing experience!! I wanted to make a lot of cultural activities during my trip to Madrid and I thought maybe going to the museums with a guide would be worth it. ABSOLUTELY!! Fernando is one of the gratest guides I’ve ever met. He knows everything about the artists you will see and makes you feel the passion he feels about the art itself. So funny and enjoyable experience. 100% recommended!!!

The most popular collection—housed mostly on the first floor—spans from 1900 to 1945 and includes works by Picasso, Dalí, and Miró. The second-floor collection covers post-war works from Spain and around the world, while the Nouvel building houses works from 1962 to 1982.
