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.

Sure, the Prado is the “must see” museum in Madrid...but this one is the one where you can relax and find the art you really like. An encyclopedic collection that extends to late 20th-century, this place has a little something for every art lover. It’s...More

I would highly recommend it as a part of Golden triangle in Madrid (with Prado and Reina Sofia Museum). You will see Dali, Degas, Caravaggio, some Flemish masters etc.

Private collection takes you through a art history chronology. Also the groupings within a style helped to understand an art movement. Many Masters and some unexpected too. Good cafe too.

Smaller than the Prado and very manageable in a few hours. Very well designed and spacious. Wide variety of paintings displayed representing different artists and styles.

This museum has a selection of more 'recent' artists than the Prado. Its well laid out and easy to see all in one visit if you don't spend too long in each room. Very enjoyable.

Lovely museum small but lots of lovely paintings - very famous paintings. You can do it in a couple of hours. But you can spend all day.

every time I visit madrid there is a beautiful and very professional art exhibition taking place, therefore i take the time to reserve and enjoy a wonderful showing prior to savouring a delicious coffee at their garden restaurant

I found the art at the Thyssen to be mostly second-tier, perhaps with a few exceptions -- the riveting Rembrandt self-portrait, the Jacob Jordaens Holy Family, the El Grecos. I was captivated and spent most of a day. The art is almost entirely paintings, ranging...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

No need to do anything prior to arrival - we just turned up. There were no huge queues and anyone can get in for free. Well worth a visit - but the 4 hours free isn't really long enough to do this museum justice.
