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.

A beautifully laid out collection in a lovely museum. Much more accessible than the Prado but does not lack for old Masters and, my favourites, the Impressionists. Too much to take it in one visit but that is a lovely excuse to keep coming back.

The best museum in Madrid. The collection is brilliant, the organisation is perfect! If you want to visit just a one museum in Madrid - choose Thyssen-Bornemisza!

An amazing collection of art across the centuries. The museum is not vast but has a friendly, intimate feel rather than a huge gallery. Just enough paintings to keep you interested without getting pictured-out. The building is lovely too.

I really enjoyed my visit to this small museum (in comparison to El Prado). I especially enjoyed browsing the gift shop and buying items for family back home. My only regret is that I gave them all away and forgot to keep something for myself.

Good collection covering European art with some american paintings. The earliest paintings are a couple of 13th century paintings and then 14th and 15th centruy through to the latest which are twentieth century. It is a high quality collection.

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.
