About
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.

I loved the afternoon I spent here. Mondays are free for all.
The museum has an excellent collection with something for everyone: paintings range from the middle ages to the present day and are over three floors. I loved their impressionist (monnet, manet, morisot, renoir to name a few, and the mondrian and hoppers there, but they have excellent early and mid 20th century, and loads of old master and renaissance too). Well worth the 4 hours spent there, and I would go again

There are a lot of museums in Madrid. If you only have time for one, this is the one I recommend. The works are well displayed. It was very enjoyable.

We loved it, plenty of benches to sit and expositions to enjoy. No issue taking photos in the gallery. Free cloakroom service.

This was one of most our favorite museums in Madrid to visit. This is a must see when in Madrid. It is filled with amazing art and ranks up there with the Prado in my opinion. We also bought tickets to see the extra exhibit, Hyperreal. If it is there when you go, it is well worth it.

An excellent museum with some wonderful paintings!
The museum is light and airy but difficult to navigate as we struggled to find a floor plan of the museum on the website- they don’t do paper plans.
We went round the main collection on the ground floor, the American exhibition, the trompe l’oeil exhibition and an installation on the lower floor before having a coffee.
The cafeteria is hard work as you are expected to order without seeing a menu (you have to ask for one) but the coffee is very nice.
We then went back into the museum to find some specific paintings which we hadn’t seen - we found there was a second floor and another half of the first floor which we hadn’t spotted as there is limited signage but we viewed everything we wanted to see ( one of my friends went back later in the day to have a second look).
The collection of paintings is fantastic!

Impressive and rich private art collection! A most of your tryp to Madrid! Situated in the centre of the city is almost always crowed.

More manageable and much more diverse in some ways than The Prado given its full range of subject matter and date. Please do not attempt to do them both on the same day! Well laid out with fascinating and challenging exhibits. The jury is out on which of the "big three" galleries I preferred!

This one is worth the visit; a great collection in a smaller space makes this museum a definite stop.

This is a fabulous museum with so much to see, you need a full day to see everything- make use of the restaurant for lunch!
The audio guide is well worth it and picks out key pieces of art for explanation.

Definitely worth a visit if you can arrange a free ticket - plenty to see and well laid out. Several Picasso's, a few Dali's too.
