This was a truly joyful experience as this museum was so wonderful. It is full of classic pieces to the modern and has something for everyone. I wish I has had time to go back... Worth its weight in gold...

This is a great museum - You can start on the top floor and work your way down through the entire history of art. The middle floor is clearly the big draw with the Impressionists etc. In early October this year there were a huge number of paintings on loan elsewhere which was disappointing.

Impressed by the diversity of the art at this museum. Lots of different periods of art history on display so everyone should find something that they enjoy. Well worth a visit.

We really appreciated the scale and diversity of this museum. It's a beautiful complement to the Prado just down the street. We spent several hours here and didn't come close to doing it justice. I believe everyone will find art to like here.

While I'm certainly glad I visited, the space in which the industrialist and his wife made the museum is very compelling, the collection itself is fine but not universally so. Read up before you go, and see for yourself.

worth a visit depends on what you like but they have a detailed map and the collection is rather compact especially comparing to that of Prado.

We saw a wonderful showing of Surrealism at the Thyssen - Bornemisza Museum. Beautiful museum in a very convenient area. A must see for art enthusiasts.
