Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía

Highly recommended
This contemporary art museum occupies the former Sabatini hospital. As well as leading names in international art, it also boasts a collection of 20C Spanish painting and sculpture. The building's spectacular extension, opened in 2004 along Ronda de Atocha, is by the French architect Jean Nouvel, and hosts ambitious temporary exhibitions. In addition to Picasso's emblematic masterpiece, Guernica (1937), the museum also displays works by Gris, Miró, Dalí, Tapiès, Lopez-Garcia etc.
