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 - Write a Review

  • Fantastic, world class gallery and blissfully without the long lineups seen at the Prado. There are many, many notable works here representing a good coverage of most artistic periods. The audio tour, while not essential, is highly recommended. If you are a visitor to Madrid don't miss it.

  • It's laid out methodically and has a great collection. We spent 6 hours here and then left because we got tired. We could have easily spent another 4 hours here. They also have a cafe indoors

  • First time here after four visits to Madrid. Very enjoyable. Some excellent paintings from known and lesser known artists. The Jewel at the moment is the Picasso/ Lautrec exhibition - not to be missed, and included in the admission price

  • Excellent art collection, shows a wide selection of art history. If you pick the right day the entrance it's free. Amazing art pieces.

  • It's a great place to go on a date, too bad the area my lady friend wanted to see was closed off at the time. But overall had amazing pieces of art
