Malaga's Carmen Thyssen Museum impresses for the quality and comprehensiveness of its collection, all this without making your visit a tiresome affair, since it is relatively compact in size.

We paid for the special exhibition that included a Van Gogh and Monet but actually we thoroughly enjoyed the other galleries with their Spanish art and artists. There were some amusing paintings of fights in bars, wonderful paintings of the sea with and without sunsets and gorgeous paintings of women dressed in colourful shawls. Well worth a visit.

This is a well laid out museum with some excellent temporary exhibitions. Closed Monday (although the excellent gift shop is still open). Beunaventura by Torres is particularly stunning. The museum takes you through various art movements, with romanticism and Precieux style being very well covered. You may not recognise all the artists but you will appreciate much of their work....

Must see. Masterpieces of the top masters of painting. The exhibition also has a permanent collection of great Spanish artists who are directly or indirectly impacted by the four men.

The museum is small and has a particular emphasis on Spanish painters. The current special exhibition relates to Landscape and shows the various influence of Gaugin,Van Gogh and Courbet on Spanish Landscape artists. The permanent collection is well curated but the art of the 19th Century that was prized in Spain is unfortunately dull. A visit to the Picasso museum... More

... this smaller museum in Malaga won't knock your socks off. Still, the permanent collection is well-curated; works are displayed in interesting juxtaposition; and you gain greater appreciation of the great Spanish masters and more contemporary artists. The landscapes and seascapes are especially strong. The works also provide a pictorial history of Spanish landmarks and traditions; the realist paintings are... More

I was attracted to the museo by posters advertising a temporary exhibition of Impressionist works - headlined Courbet, Van Gogh, Monet and Leger. I also viewed the permanent exhibition of Old Masters, Romantic Landscapes and Fin de Siècle. Not being an art afficianado, I was not familiar with the work of the artists featured in the collection, other than the... More

This has to be one of the least grand and imposing art galleries anywhere; you could walk past it and not notice, but in doing so you would miss out on one of the finest collections Europe has to offer, especially in terms of realist, fin-de-siecle and cubist paintings. Not as grand as the Thyssen in Madrid, this is nevertheless... More
