Thyssen - Bornemisza Museum - Review

Madrid already had the The Prado and the Sofia, and somehow the Thyssen had to make a name for it among these incredibly popular competitor galleries. How did it do that? Well:

  • With an intense focus on impressionistic and post impressionistic work.
  • A clever chronological procession of paintings that let viewers almost literally strolls through history.
  • Paintings that are superbly curated – only the masters of the masters are displayed here.
  • A tranquil atmosphere where the silence lets the art speak and allows you to hear – unlike the Prado and the Sofia.
  • An incredibly compact layout that allows a great number of precious artwork to be crammed into a very small space.
  • A beautiful building of warm and inviting hues.

Other collections here include Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo, 14th and 15th century recento and quattrocento, and Flemish and Dutch painters.

It’s only when you’re leaving that you realise that you’ve been well and thoroughly enchanted. The museum doesn’t show you everything you need to know about European painting, but it shows you a lot of what really matters.

Thyssen - Bornemisza Museum, Madrid Reviews

  • A very cozy, relaxing, interesting and well organized gallery. You'll find paintings from Italian Renaissance to XX Century with some statues too (a bronze by Giacometti). All great pieces are commented by an outstanding audio guide. The cafeteria and the gift shop are a nice experience too. Not to miss at all, even if it's very close to Prado.

  • One of the trio of must-visit museums in Madrid (and in my opinion, the best). It is filled with quality contemporary art, and a LOT of works by big name artists. It has a nice cafe/restaurant outside and very interesting temporary exhibits. I am not an art buff in any sense, but I do enjoy art a lot and this museum certainly delivered. And the best part is, YOU CAN TAKE PICTURES !

  • Absolutely awesome. Enormous place, easy to get lost. Lots of religious paintings. Don't miss Dauphine's Treasure whatever you do. ID needed for seniors which is cheaper. No queues when I went at 3.30pm weekday.

  • One of the best museums I have ever been in. In my opinion on par with the van Gogh museum and the likes. The collection is astonishing and the galleries are well organized. While I was there, an exposition was running comparing Monet and Baudet. A great comparison which showed the similarities between the two painters. It was a bummer to find out you could not take photos of the exposition. Fortunately you can take pictures throughout the entirety of the museum.

  • Great place to see art. It's a must see together with Prado and Reina Sofia. It has a tremendous collection so be prepared to stay here 3-4 hours or make multiple visits since it's very tiring. If you "run" through the museum and stop at certain paintings you should make around 1 and half hours.
