Meet your bilingual guide at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, officially inaugurated in September 1992 and named for Queen Sofía.

Dedicated to Spanish art, highlights of the museum include superb collections of Spain's 3 great 20th-century artists - Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró. Get a close look at Picasso's "Guernica" mural-sized oil painting, regarded by many as one of the most powerful anti-war works of art in history. Get explanations in English and Spanish about 20th-century art movements, such as abstract art, cubism, surrealism and modernism.

See important works by principal artists in a beautiful museum that was formerly an elegant hospital building. Take a look at the vaulted hallways, and enjoy a walk in the gardens to admire the building from the outside.

Our tour was educational, and our tour guide was very experienced.

Initially I was apprehensive about our tour because the group was large and it looked like the tour was going to be given simultaneously in Spanish and English by one tour guide. However, a second guide arrived before we began, and we broke into two smaller groups - one for each language. Our group of five people was the perfect size. It made it easy to follow our guide as we moved through the exhibits. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, leading us through each exhibit in chronological order of the styles of art. She gave us a background on each style, information on each artist and his/her life, and pointed out details and symbolism in each piece. She brought along copies of related works from the Prado and other museums - a very thoughtful extra touch. My husband and I were very pleased with this tour, especially getting to see Guernica in person and exploring the museum at our leisure after the tour. Only complaint: quality of guide’s mic - audio was sometimes painfully crackly.

Paola was amazing, informative and energetic

So happy we booked this tour of the Reina Sofia. Paola was such a great tour guide. She helped us understand so many of the abstract pieces and provided information that we would remember and appreciate. She was super sweet and friendly. Made the entire experience 1000 times better.
