Comprehensive collection.

Huge collection over four levels of 'grand masters' style paintings, with a more contemporary exhibition too.

Great musuem showcasing traditional flat art. Interpretation is a bit basic and you can zip round quickly - visit on the free times! Temporary exhibition was good but added bonus as visiting on free Sunday! In the late afternoon

We visited this museum in June and spent a very enjoyable time there. The museum opened in 2011, so was new to us as we hadn't been back to Malaga in about 15 years. We arrived shortly after 10:30am and broke for lunch, then returned to finish it. There are about 230 works in the permanent collection. It contained a... More

What a great gallery. Some beautiful paintings, well presented, nice and relaxed surroundings - a great way to spend an afternoon on a very hot day.

Very nice building and the size of this private collection is very impressive. It's not my favorite museum in Málaga but worth a visit if you are interested in Old Masters. Bring a coat. Freezing cold! (I was there in summer when the temperature outside is hot, but still. Don't understand why the have to push it that far....)

This museum is located in a lovely building near the heart of the old city. It is very spacious which adds to the enjoyment of the spectacular art on display. I would recommend this museum to everybody as I would the new Russian Museum , the Malaga branch of the St Petersburg Museum. Malaga has become a great city to... More

Mainly Spanish paintings, a history of Spanish art. Pleasant and thoughtful collection of Carmen the wife of Baron Thyssen. In an easy to find pittoresque building in the center of Malaga. Well worth a visit.

I have spent over 3 hrs in that museum. I couldn't just left that place. Tickets price is for reasonable prices - for permanent exhibition - EUR 5, for temp one just 4 EUR for this season. Definitely it worth the money you spend there to see all these amazing paintings. Afterwards you can order the reproduction of your favourite... More

Don't expect a boring place to see lots of artworks. It's a refreshing museum that shows a bit of the huge collection Thyssen-Bornemisza. If you are in a hurry you will probably visit it in an hour. We were impressed with the beautiful contrast between pictures and modern frameworks.

First and not my last visit to this gem of a gallery. The themes on Spanish life and scenery are really atmospheric, adds real depth to understanding Spanish life.
