Is just and very popular art museum if you like art you can find very cool art pieces, and after you finish inside, on the outside you have a really nice lounge where you can have drinks, eat etc. Gotta try it
From Degas to Picasso, there are lots of fantastic art to see in this other Art Madrid Museum. Of course the incredible Guernica by Picasso is the must see. They also host traveling shows, we've seen a wonderful Andy Warhol retrospective there.
I had a hard time choosing which museum to go to in Madrid. I decided on Thyssen mainly because it featuring a Monet exhibition. Also because it is small enough to fully enjoy in one day's visit. I was not disappointed!
The third of the big three museums (with the Prado, Reina Sofia). Free Monday. Unbelievable but this is about 2/3 of the Thyssen-Bornemisza private collection. Has an impressive mixture of paintings, old masters, some modern, even a Gilbert Stuart. If you do all three museums...More
Baron Thyssen bought everything. Much of it is second-rate paintings by great masters, but some of it is great: El Greco's "The Crown of Thorns," Sargent's "Onion Seller," Corot's "Nymph," Goya's "Ferdinand VII," Bierstadt's "Sunset on the Prarie," Remington's "Stealing Horses," etc. Incredibly, Thyssen acquired...More
We visited this Gallery on a Monday afternoon (12.00 to 16:00) when the gallery is free. I'd recommend going to the temporary exhibitions on the top floors as they close at 13:00 on Mondays first and work your way down. There are some 200 pieces...More
This was our favorite museum visit. It has a little bit of everything and we especially enjoyed the modern art. I would suggest buying tickets ahead of time. People start lining up around the building to go in early.
We went on a Monday afternoon when the admission is free (from noon to 4 p.m) and were pleasantly surprised that there wasn’t a huge line to get in when we arrived around 12:30 p.m. and while there were a lot of people in the...More
great building with the artwork spread across the floors.
Some really wonderful artwork, that we strolled around for a number of hours,its amazing to think this is a private collection.
Well worth visiting this museum
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.
