Owner description: 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.

Check and see if they have some special exhibitions. We saw a great one on Givenchy. However, you will also enjoy their permanent collection which is different from what you'll see at the Prado.

I will confess that art museums are not my thing, so I will write this from my partner’s perspective. She found the collection very interesting with many notable artists displaying their obvious works of art and the not so obvious. For example a Gainsborough portrait, rather than a landscape. Her one disappointment was that there were no paintings by Titian... More

Unique oportunity to see one of the World's largest and most diverse art collections. Check for the temporary shows, they usually are rare oportunities so see amazing and huge collections of pieces that one would have to travel the world to see and, not toghether.

This wonderful museum has masterpieces from the 14th century, to today. There is a wide variety in the types of art displayed at this museum. There is something for everyone. It was far less crowded than the Prado, making for a quite enjoyable visit.

Really loved spending time here. Along with Prado, one of the must see places in Madrid, but make sure you have plenty time set aside to take it all in.

Madrid is blessed with three world class art galleries the Prado, Sofia Reina and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. My favourite is the Thyssen. Firstly, it's sheer diversity of art from 14th century to modern art with practically every major artist represented, means that no matter your taste in art there is something there for you! My favourites; Canaletto, Renoir, Monet, Schiele... More

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, which contains one of the worlds foremost and most distinguished private art collections, opened on 8th October 1992.
