There are a few amazing paintings in the Thyssen-Bornemisza, there are some great paintings, there are quite a few average paintings. Because of the good and great pieces I would suggest you definatley see the collection.They always seem to have superb temporary exhibitions. The one was we saw featured the painter Alma-Tadema, and was excellent.

This is an awesome trip through the European art world from Gothic to modern all under one roof and on a scale that is very manageable. Even if you are not much of an art gallery fan, visit this one.

There's arguments to be had that this is a better museum than the prado. Get the audio tour but use it selectively. Had the Madrid tourist pass which includes all the major sites and is well worth having.

I had a quick visit during free hours on a Monday. It's a nice collection, spanning many periods. Also a well organized space over three floors. Worth a visit if you like art

What a pleasant place this museum is. For the art connoisseur maybe the Prado is the pinnacle but for us this was a more pleasant three hours. From the 14th to the 20th century there were works of all ages and styles. Maybe some of the best work from past masters are not there but Titian, Rubens, Murillo, Raphael, Picasso,... More

So many beautiful pieces, plan to spend an entire day enjoying them. When you're too tired to appreciate the beauty, stop in the outdoor cafe for a coffee and a nibble. Its a beautiful spot to refuel and relax before heading back inside for more masterpieces.

Value for money, we spent most of the day looking as the vast amount of painting. Staff were very helpful and polite
