This has to be one of the best art museums I have visited, and I've visited a few! Just the right size so you are able to see it all and fantastic art to view.

This is wonderful art collection amassed by rich european industrialist's wife. . . .. it is worth a visit but remember it has impressive collection of lesser works from the masters and masterpieces from lesser artists and that isnt a knock as I feel Prado and Centro de Arte Reina Sofia are better etc . . . .

Both the permanent and the temporary collections are great. Very convenient location close to many amenities. Online tickets facilities allow to plan any visit in advance. A must in any visit to Madrid

It is full of fantastic collections, both temporary and permanent. The size is also good; it's not too much to take in at once. Nice café!

Great collection of art starting from XIII century - Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries up to Pop Art. The last one personally I don't like, but it did not spoil my impression from the museum :) Pay attention to the thematic exhibitions, mainly they are interesting and well-done

The museum lies between Reina Sofia and Prado, what could be called the Museum Triangle. One can walk from Reina Sofia to Thyssen and then to the Prado. This is a private collection dontaed by the matriarch of the Thyssen family. It is a wonderful collections of all Masters. I find it a relaxing Museum as it is not overwhelming,... More

Lovely light modern gallery with nice cafe and shop. Permanent exhibition is wonderful and the Cezanne exhibition which is on at the moment is out of this world.

I was with my wife and teenager daughters in Madrid for my birthday. I had been thinking of an attraction that all could enjoy. Not easy with teenagers... My decision fell on Thyssen-Bornemisza. I had booked the tickets online, so we could just leave or jackets in the wardrobe and pass directly. The museum has different areas with art from... More

Arrived in Madrid expecting to enjoy the Prado and Reina Sofia museums, but this was actually our favorite. It was not as crowded and easier to navigate. Wished we could have seen the Cezanne - but loved the primary collection. Especially for teenagers, I think this museum is wonderful dose of art - with variety so they can find what... More

Even without seeing the special exhibits (currently Cezanne), this museum has enough art spanning hundreds of centuries to transfix even the most jaded museum-goer. The 14C-15C religious paintings are outstanding, the German Expressionists and 20C paintings just as good. It took us 5.5 hours to wander through, with a 30 min. Break for a glass of cava in the pleasant,... More
