Know the History:
The building of the Reina Sofia Museum first began as a hospital. However, over time it became out-dated for its original needs. It wasn’t until 1986 though, that the building finally took the name as the Reina Sofia Museum. The first two floors of the old hospital were filled with temporary exhibitions for the public to see. Then, in 1992, the museum created its first permanent exhibition. This lead to it becoming an official and permanent museum. Today, the museum is filled with modern and contemporary art that is open to the public. It houses very famous artists and valuable pieces of art. The hopes to show the importance of art in our community and bring a variety of art to the public.
What to Expect:
Our tour through the Reina Sofia Museum will be done in chronological order. Our main focus will be on the most popular and important works starting with Picasso’s Guernica. We hope to hit all the exhibits that you have dreamed of seeing.
