  • The Madrid museum of art (Queen Sofia) introduced us to the powerful piece: Guernica, and it has been with us (mentally) since then. But Picasso is a complex person with an infinite imagination only....  more

  • Underwhelming; stop by and go in if you’re in the area but don’t expect to be blown away. Lots of early work, was somewhat interesting but didn’t find anything over excited. Over hyped a bit.

  • Make sure to buy tickets in advance and to book a slot! If you’re going during the touristy season like I did, you could wait up to 30 minutes in line to get in but it is absolutely worth the try. It costs around 17€ for an all inclusive ticket plus 90 minutes audio guide. Alternatively, you can book a guided tour. There’s plenty to see, beautiful building, and a big gift store that has anything you need from a museum gift store. All in all, definitely a recommended activity if you’re into art.
  • Far more than you expect in this museum, you see Picasso’s journey from young artist to profound one. Plenty of material to read and plenty of pieces to look at. We spent a good 2 hours here. The best feature of this museum was the way it displayed the countless practice pieces or different versions of Picasso’s work, so you could see the development of a piece and the process behind it. Really enjoyed it. Book before
