Well laid out museum

The art is a great overview of Spanish art. Three level museum with an elevator. Easy find in the city center. Gift shop and coffee shop on site.

Wonderful art in a beautiful building. Well laid out on several floors. A must to visit. We particularly liked the variety of paintings from many different artists. Could not find anything to dislike.

A superb collection of Spanish art, with special exhibitions most of the time. Well presented, and well lit. Lots to see. Reasonable entrance fee. Small restaurant with delicious tapas.

Worth a look at the variety of artists in the collection and the insight into the social world of Spain from the mid 1800's - mid 1900's. Went to see the current temporary show specifically because posters featured Edward Hopper and Winslow Homer but then found only 1 work from each artist ...... that was a bit of a let... More

After noting a number of impressionist paintings on loan to Malaga when we visited the Madrid museum, we decided to pay a visit our first day in Malaga when we discovered the Museo just a block from our hotel. The temporary exhibit features paintings related in some way to the seashore. Nothing remarkable. Certainly pleasant, but with audio guide we... More

The museum is in a beautiful building. The collection is small but for me the main drawback was that the pictures on show are not the best examples of the various artist' work.

. Not devoted to any one style, any one period or even any one country, the exhibitions are well worth seeing. They have different exhibitions on at different times, as well as the standrad collection. We saw some interesting pictures of Carmen Thyssen herself and of her elder son and the (adopted) twin daughters. If you know her family history... More

Loved the old style paintings from the main exhibition. Everything was so relaxed walking round seeing representations of life in Spain in the past. The temporary exhibition was showing later paintings and I am not so keen on the "modern" style. Very nice to have a break with refreshments in the cafeteria. What is really annoying is that there are... More
