view web site ›'s insider take:

A spectacular triangular-roofed addition by French star architect Jean Nouvel has boosted what was already Spain's most important modern-art museum into the capital's new must-see. The $120 million building houses exhibition spaces, a 350,000-volume library, two auditoriums, a bookshop, a tapas bar/restaurant called Arola, a fabulous interior plaza, and a sixth-floor terrace with stunning views of the city. The permanent collection, which stays in the 18th-century hospital it's inhabited since 1992, still makes essential viewing: Miró, Dalí, and Barceló are especially well represented, and Picasso's iconic Guernica is here.

Open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 am to 9 pm; Sundays from 10 am to 2:30 pm.
