Visited a couple museums on the same day and this was definitely my favorite. The artwork they had displayed was mind blowing to me, especially not being an art buff or nerd. I am always impressed by the talent of artists, especially ones hundreds of years ago, and this delivered. Museum is very cool layout and staff is very helpful,... More

This museum is a showcase for traditional Spanish, and in particular, Andalucian, painting, especially of the 18th and 19th centuries. This is not a museum of Spain's Art of the Golden Age (that's in the Prado in Madrid), but a quieter gallery of traditional landscapes, fiestas, weddings, fishing, and local interest. The kind of paintings wealthy patrons would buy for... More

This is an intimate, manageable museum, very close to the city centre. The collection is of pictures of Andalucian life in the C19th and there are lovely intimate scenes like weddings and dancing for the priest. The pictures have such character. I never tire of it and will g oback next week for the third time.

We chose the cheaper Temporary exhibit that was supposed to have some more modern paintings from some famous artists. Very disappointing as there were few pieces of art. Mostly advertisements created by some artists. Took less the 30 minutes to see only 2 floors. Paid 4. 50 Euros per person to see about 30 works of art. Big ripoff!

I found the gallery a little sparse lots of walls that could have pictures on them but didn't, but it has a good selection of historical pictures and I do recommend a visit.

We decided to only visit the tempest poster exhibit. We were there for under an hour. Entry was 2.5 euros for people over 65 for the temporary exhibit.

I went to the Museo Carmen Thyssen during the free hours on Sunday ( from 17:30. ) It turns out you can see all the beautiful work by Spanish artists in that window of 2 hours. The temporary exhibition was about international artists getting into logo and advertisement design, which also gave nice insight into the history of that discipline.... More
