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 saw two special exhibitions (Dufy, Delvaux) - but there's also a great permanent collection. Restaurant for lunch was really good.

I enjoyed my visit to this gallery. Lots to see and more varied pieces of art. It was good to see religious arts rescued from old churches along with modern art works. The Thyssen is smaller than the Prado and has a lovely restaurant. with out door tables.

Unlike the Prado with all its great and large works of art, this museum guides you along the history of painting through some truly masterworks. The exhibition is very well organized and the audio guide is excellent. We truly loved this museum and its selection of masterpieces. Truly worth visiting.

As known to all, this is one of Madrid's holy trinity of art collections. It's located a very short walk away from the Prado and so if you have the energy left after a Prado visit, this will offer you interesting insights into how visual art developed over the centuries, particularly the themes and focus. Museum itself is substantially large,... More

The collection has enormous diversity in style and age and yet seems unified. As if the pieces have lived with each other for a long time and have become friends. A collection as good as this will attract crowds and it certainly did the day we attended. Fellow viewers were polite and respected each another. Maybe we were just lucky,... More

This is a remarkable private art collection, donated to the public fairly recently. It really covers a lot of ground and is small enough to take in, in one visit. Nice cafe makes an easy snack or light meal for your tour.

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.
