Organised in such a way that you can see how art developed over the centuries, with plenty of examples by artists you've heard about. Full of famous artwork, both from Spain and around the world. Do get an audio guide. Their exhibition on El Greco's influence up to Bacon was a little over egged I felt, but interesting all the... More

Fantastic collection including artists that you won't find in El Prado (much better than some National Museums' collection, like the Rijksmuseum). Withing walking distance of the most important museum in the country (El Prado), you will find a surprisingly good collection, especially considering it is privately owned. A must in your cultural visit to Madrid,

We were told to take the lift to the top floor and view the art working our way down to the ground floor. Actually the top floors have alot of art similar to the Prado, which we'd ust spent a few hours walking around. In the Thyssen the more modern stuff is on the ground floor and by the time... More

This is a must see. They have wunderfull paintings off great artists. Very big museum so take your time or choose a part of the museum. Look at the site of the museum if they have a period where you don't pay entrance fee

I was under the impression that this museum was small - WRONG! Over 1000 works of art displayed inside span the 13th - 20th Centuries. Monet, Renoir, Caravaggio, Rubens, Dali, Kandinsky, Hopper, Degas, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso, and many more! The museum opened in 1992 and is primarily from a collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection. Near the Prado, but if... More

3 museums in 3 days in a group of 4 with 2 teenagers including one very reluctant. There is only so much that Coca-cola and great food can do but this museum which happened to be our 3rd of 3 delivered the best Pop Art as a visiting exhibition did help. Strangely this museum had the MOST INCOMPETANT staff of... More

Great little gallery. As a private collection made public it's very much a trip through the ages so there should be something for everyone here. We did a fairly quick visit, a little over an hour, as my partner isn't a huge fan of galleries. This was enough time to see all of the permanent collection, spending a little longer... More

I gave the Prado 5 stars because it is absolutely beautiful and is filled with amazing art, but in my opinion, this museum is better. This is really just based on personal taste because the Thyssen museum has a lot of different pieces, whereas the Prado had a lot of art influenced by Catholicism and works by Goya (though I... More

We visited this museum twice as once did not do it justice, The collection is incredibly rich and diverse, ranging from Rembrandt to Van Gough, Renoir, Miro, Kandinsky, Dali, and Picasso. I loved this museum, it was far better than the Reina Sofia and the Prado. To top it off we visited the POP art exhibition which included a lot... More
