Overview

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.

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.

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
