The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum offers visitors an overview of art from the 13th century to the late 20th century. In the nearly one thousand works on display, visitors can contemplate the major periods and pictorial schools of western art such as the Renaissance, Mannerism, the Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism and the art of the 19th and 20th centuries up to Pop Art. The museum also features works from some movements not represented in state-owned collections, such as Impressionism, Fauvism, German Expressionism and the experimental avant-garde movements of the early 20th century. In addition, it boasts an important collection of 19th-century American painting not found in any other European museum institutions.

We found it a particularly unique collection (American art [landscapes] and works of Italian primitives were the best for us). The museum is designed as a journey through the history of Western art - both classical and modern, so everyone will find something for oneself. There's also a big gift shop and you can print or order for home delivery... More

Take at least two or three hours walking and stopping through the rooms of the thyssen museum, you will enjoy the best of the impressionism as renoir, degas as well as van gogh, kandisky picasso and many others. Don't forget caravaggio and raffaello. I spent the whole morning with my family and even my young daughters seven and nine years... More

If you've been walking around Madrid all morning and want to relax over a delicious light lunch in a cool place, look no further-this is the place! There is a choice to either sit inside or outside under umbrellas and the staff are welcoming and friendly. I popped in on impulse and had a tasty sandwich which was on the... More

Liked: free on Mondays! Huge range of paintings from 1500s to the present. Had many well-known works you would have expected to find in the Prado or the Louvre. If you only have time for one of the three in the Art Triangle, visit this one! (nice cafe too)

Very well curated and laid out. We also visited the Vogue exhibition which was a lot more interesting than we imagined.

Out of the 3 main galleries this was my favourite. It's a smaller gallery with a gradual progression through the art world. The audio guides are great at giving you a background to the paintings and where the artists got their inspiration.

Short tour for the exhibition Vogue like a painting, nice, but I think the tickets price should be a little bit cheaper, for instance, I think Prado as a ticket price more adjusted to the exhibition.

We have been lucky enough to visit the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums for free over the last few days and Thyssen-Bornemisza was definitely our favourite. Mainly because the collection was more varied and interesting. Also the layout was much simpler and less confusing!

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighborhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
