Madrid: Skip-the-Line Reina Sofía Museum Entrance Ticket

5. Madrid: Skip-the-Line Reina Sofía Museum Entrance Ticket

The museum represents an intersection of spaces, objects and times: a place where narratives are woven together and stories told, rendering every intersection meaningful as it leads off in one direction or another, turning it into an intense experience of discovery and knowledge. This is why everything that is exhibited, in all its strangeness, all its questions, has to actually touch the visitor’s everyday reality, bringing about a genuine learning experience. The Museo Reina Sofia’s presentation of its collection posits a multi-narrative journey, which adopts a definite standpoint and not only keeps the mystery inherent in art alive, but also strengthens resistance towards the single, fixed reading.

Excellent guide. Excellent language skills. Very knowledgeable. Picked all the right highlights from the collection.
