Yeah, lol. Why do forumers keep putting non-construction progress stuff in here lol

Anyway, the glass and other shiney surfaces are nice, particularly the red area.

It's where the guernica is exposed!!!
I also had the chance to see a temporary Andy Warhol expo there..
Reina Sofia is one of my favourite museums, is it built in the same location?

More photographs of Reina Sofía Museum















I hope you find them interesting.

In this museum there are pictures like Guernica by Picasso or Yhe girl in the wondow by Dalí. Other painters exposed here are Miró, Barceló, Tapies, Chillida, Juan Gris, Sicilia, etc.

The extension is designed specially for temporary exhibitions. And there is also a library, a bookshop and two auditories (in the red building) and a restaurant.

It´s near Prado Museum and Thyssen Museum, other important institutions in Madrid.

Thank you everybody for reading this post.
