It was nice to be able to enjoy these collections for free on a Monday afternoon. There are lots of impressionists and post impressionists artists and the lines are more reasonable than the Prado Museum.

I recommend overall this museum but specially the itinerant collections are normally really interesting. I recommend the one about pop art which is on from June 2014. Really interesting pop collection

We bought tickets in the morning and returned in the afternoon. What a fabulous collection of artwork from the 13th to the 20th century. It is probably the most important private collection in the world. Now I wish I had bought the companion guide for the museum.

First, I do not ordinarily enjoy art museums (incredibly dull). That being said I would highly recommend the Thyssen. It's inexpensive (10 euro I think) with no line (versus the Prado which is across the street), the museum is easy to navigate.

We decided to try this smaller museum out after walking through Retio Park. We loved all of the art work, but couldn't figure out why the different (Master) artists works weren't grouped together, i.e. you would find one Van Gogh on the second floor, and others on the first floor. Same with Pissaro and others. There was also a nice... More

Absolutely loved it! Funny, but this collection was more according to my taste than Prado - somehow offered more variety of stiles. And it has impressionists, what else can you wish :)
