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.

We were delighted to be here. The museums hosts a wide collection of artists and their paints needs to be admired at ease so one needs a couple of hours to do justice to this museum.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the museum was very well stocked with many great paintings. It being a private collection, I think I was expecting something smaller. Thyssen's taste was excellent and eclectic. I liked this museum, as it was light and airy, had...More

Went with my wife and 16 year old granddaughter who was keen to visit a "real" art gallery. We were not disappointed. Not to be missed if you are visiting Madrid.

I've visited both the Prado and Reina Sofia art galleries but Thyssen pips them at the post. Beautiful, open spaces and a huge range of art. If you only have time to see one gallery in Madrid, make it this one. Free on Monday afternoons.

This is onw of my wife's favorite museums in Spain because of its size (big but not gigantic) and its good collection of modern art.

Spectacular collection of art. The art pass is worth your money. After the museum go for drinks at the bar.

A really huge collection from 16th century up to XXI centuary. We recommend to start from the second floor and go down till the basement. The only bad matter is the ticket office staff. They acted in a such unpolite way!

A really good collection in a "smaller museum". Not busy so you can really admire the art works. Make sure you know what you're really wanting to see & plan your visit.

This is an absolutely fantastic museum which once housed the second largest private collection in the world after the British Royal Collection. One of the key focal points is its early European paintings of trecento and quattrocento (i.e. 14th and 15th century) which result in...More

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

I wouldn't buy the audio guide during the free time. Many of the exhibits don't have any info associated with them. There is so much to see, I wouldn't let the audio guide slow me down, unless you only want to see certain... More
