Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía

When the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía opened its doors in 1990, it stood as a modern, contemporary Spanish museum on an international scale.

When the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía opened its doors in 1990, it stood as a modern, contemporary Spanish museum on an international scale. 

Through its collections and exhibitions the museum has opted to distance itself from the modern lineal narrative of modernity, but also from the banal post-modern oblivion of history that proliferates in the most recent exposure models. We wanted also to move away from the conventional distinctions between center and periphery, giving importance to the complexity of relationships established between the local and the universal.



The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía is committed to universal accessibility and works to continually improve services for visitors and to develop an education programme that is based on the principle of design for all, offering a quality service to a diverse range of visitors.

Physical accessibility

Access to the Museo that is free from architectural barriers and the chance to move around the different spaces without discomfort and obstacles, these are the fundamental conditions for achieving full accessibility. Practically all areas open to the public are wheelchair accessible, and the work carried out to improve this aspect is ongoing. A whole range of services such as ramps, disabled WCs, seats and cloakrooms facilitate visits to the Museo.

Visual Accessibility

Accessibility measures for blind people or those with visual impairments are oriented towards the effective dissemination of information, facilitating mobility and allowing aesthetic enjoyment, both independently and in the company of the Museo’s educators, who guide, support and personalise visits. The combination between verbal information, touch access and sound is one of the keys to these programmes, carried out with support from the ONCE organisation.

Audio Accessibility

Through Spanish Sign Language (LSE), recently recognised as an official language, and the use of hearing assistance systems, for instance the hearing loop, the entire Deaf community have the chance to visit, participate in and enjoy the Museo. Regardless of the system used by each deaf person or those with hearing loss, the Museo can be visited either independently or with organised groups, and all scheduled public activities can also be enjoyed.

Intellectual Accessibility

The Museo is a space for dialogue that must stand as a reference point for inclusion and social coexistence, as well as a place for individual development, where the chances for reflection, critical education and values are multiplied and strengthen capacities for everyone.
