    Excellent collection of modern art housed in a architecturally significant building. Picasso, Miro and Dali are featured. If you go early on a weekend, you will have the place to yourself.

    Great and manageable selection of modern & modernist art classics. Crowned with Guernica, the selection of weeping women & sketches by Picasso, along with 3 dancing women, are astounding.

    Incredible collection of modern masterpieces from Spanish artists like Dali, Miro and Picasso, and many other world greats. Visit the courtyard to see a larger than life mobile from Calder

    This museum has such a diverse selection of art pieces and exhibitions. It's difficult not to get lost in the halls and easily lose track of your day here. Check out the beautiful terrace!

    Take time to read why Guernica was created (as part of the Spanish Republic's exhibit at the 1937 World's Fair, in Paris) - then look around nearby rooms to see & understand what else was shown there.

    A treasure chest of Picasso and Dali paintings, including Guernica. The newly renovated and expanded architecture is an interesting old palace meets industrial vibe.

    Huge museum, but if you are a moderate fan of modern art and only want to see "the classics", come after 7pm (free entrance) and go directly to 2nd floor, skipping all the rest.

    This is one of the best galleries I have ever been too. We were lucky enough to visit when there was a Picasso exhibition. The contemporary art collection is particularly excellent.

    Excellent modern art museum. Filled with Spanish masters such as Picasso and Dali, it's a must see spot in Madrid. Don't forget to check out Guernica.

    The museum houses a collection of 20th century art, with masterpieces by artists like Picasso, Miró, Dalí, Braque. However the most important piece in the entire museum is Picasso's Guernica... Read more

    There are two ticket offices. The one on the side with the new extension is empty and very fast if you're not looking to see Dali. Dali tickets are for entry at certain times also.

    Come here to see the beautiful Guernica by Picasso, but don't plan on taking a picture of it because you can't do that here either. Only pictures of the art no one remembers is allowed.

    Gorgeous museum architecturally, that houses masterpieces in a way that constantly educates and intrigues. I wish the cafe area was kept a little cleaner.

    Students always have free admission with ID! Don't leave without seeing Guernica, but check out the other modern exhibits as well if you have time. The courtyard and building are gorgeous too.

    It might take a long queue for you to buy your entry ticket but just to see Dalí, Picasso and Miró masterpieces is very worth it! Don't miss "La Guarnica" by Picasso on the 2nd Floor.
  • Martin Z.

    Free entry in the last hours - and all day for students under age of 25. If you want to see everything, you have to spend at least half of the day. Closes at 9pm.

    A great art museum on par with the Prado, but without the crowds. Don't miss Guernica or the great Dalí collections.

    The building itself is a great piece of collections. You might need more than 5 hours to deepdive into surrealizm.

    Huge! Photo friendly (except for Guernica). Don't come unless you have enough time, put aside several hours if you're really interested in this place.

    If you want to see Picaso DO NOT GO on the "free entry" hours, it is not stated anywhere but you will not be able to see any of it.

    'Guernica' is the only reason you need to visit (in my humble opinion). Unique and timeless!
