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.

Not as well known and therefore mercifully less crowded than the Prado and the Reina Sofia, this museum is nevertheless a truly eclectic little collection of art through the ages. I particularly appreciated the peace and quiet, the very well presented audio guide and the fast & free wi-fi.

I spent two days in this gem of an art gallery. The two collections are outstanding and the audio accompanying the artworks is very informative without being verbose. This museum would be my first choice of museums in Madrid!

I loved the impressionist collection of art to bits, the Vougue like painting exhibition was also impressive. The museum was quiet and it is spacious enough to enjoy it freely

This museum is a delight. Familiar artists , and delightful discoveries. Excellent presentation. Arrive a little before opening times and the queue is very accessible. Didn't eat there as in Madrid there are so many choices.

Not the biggest museum here in Madrid, but it holds its own none the less. Wonderful collection of art. Beautiful building.

Book in advance to avoid the long long queues, nice on site cafe type eatery but you are going to see the numerous masterpieces that really are a must for a visit to Madrid. There is a lovely restaurant down the road towards the botanical gardens for lunch or evening meal. A great place to visit.

Amazing collection. Easy gallery to get through in 3 hours. Start on top floor and work your way downstairs. Don't miss it.

Visit the Prado with all the old masters, then the Reina Sofia with the modern and contemporary masters, then round out your visit at the Thyssen which houses works from the last 700 years (or so?). It really does fill in some gaps from the other two museums. Really shouldn't miss it! I was able to visit on a free... More

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.
