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.

My first visit to the TB happened to coincide with a visit by the King and Queen of Spain, unveiling a plaque to commemorate 25 years of the gallery opening! Despite the Royal entourage, heightened security presence and assembled ranks of the Press, my visit was a hassle free ramble through some of the most exceptional works of art in... More

This was in walking distance from our hotel and is not as crowded as the Prado. Admission for 2 adults is 24 euros. Nice collection of paintings. A few Monets and Renoirs.

Astonishing private collection now open to the public. The rooms and self guided tour ordered chronologically which we appreciated. Some El Greco and older art gives way quickly to Van Gogh, Pissaro,Monet, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, Miro, Tooulouise-Lautrec,Degas. Nice surprises are John Singer Sargent, Homer, Chagall, one Richard Estes, one Lichtenstein, and statues by Rodin. There's more, just go. Nice gift... More

The museum has a great collection of works: from classics to impressionists to modern. You can also buy a ticket online to avoid queuing. The stuff is very friendly and there is a free locker room.

This museum hosts much of the art from periods the surrounding museums have missed. The temporary exhibition when I visited was a collection of jewellery by Bulgari the craftsmanship in some of the pieces was truly outstanding.

While this Museum has only two floors of art - all the art is quality and you are ALLOWED to take photos unlike the other museums in Madrid. We loved the place, no long line on Sunday Morning and it is layed out where you can walked all of the museum easily and see everything.

Paintings amongst others by Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Rodin, Gaugin, Van Goth etc. Another Madrid highlight you should not miss if interested in art or even if you are not.

You cannot miss this museum if you're visiting Madrid. It is one of the finest art museums in the world and it's size does not overwhelm the visitor.

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.
