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.

Great collection in the wrong color

A great collection. I could not understand why they paint the walls in that color. The color of the walls doesn't help to appreciate it the great collection.

One of three important museums in Madrid, (the other two are Prado and Reina Sofia). This one I would put just after Prado as the most important collection. A must

Enormous collection. I thought we were done when, descending to the next floor, we just began with the collection of Impressionists. We could have spent two days there.

Amazing, diverse collection of art. Really several museums in one. Some classic, very famous pieces and many others just as interesting and beautiful.

Been to many museums but this is one of the best ever. You will see works from many masters from various eras. It's the "right size" for a 2-3 hour visit. We were there for 5 hours as we caught the VOGUE exhibit which as a novice photographer, I loved! Family enjoyed it too. The Vogue exhibit is rather short...only... More

We spent hours walking through the Thyssen Museum one day. Do your homework, there are certain days that the museum is free. Beautiful selection of art. Well worth the time.

A world class collection of art in the neighbourhood of the more legendary Prado Museum. I especially like the collection of North American art. Any art lover will find this museum to be worthwhile.

Unmissable. This is a treasure trove of masterpieces. You will be astounded. The only strange note is the salmon pink walls, which apparently Thyssen's wife insisted upon. It also has a good restaurant, which is worth checking out.

Really enjoyed my visit to this art gallery. The highlight for me was the impressionist art tucked away in a corner of the third floor. The descriptions in the audio guide are a little long winded for me, but very informative. It was also interesting seeing the contrast between the Dutch and Italian artists of the 17th century.

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.
