Overview
More
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.

This is the most eclectic art museum out of the main three art museums in Madrid. It has a bit of everything, and thus it does not become tiring. Several famous pieces can be seen. I would recommend around 3 hours to visit it.

I'm not generally one for art museums, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It took maybe 3 hours to go around and got to see some works by the likes of Dali, Monet, Picasso and more. Definitely worth the trip!

Not for a quick walk through - this gallery is vast. It is a treasure-house of some of the world's greatest art works. Must visit place on a trip to Madrid.

It offers a permanent collection as well as a temporary one - we lucked out on early Monet and Boudin. A very pleasant museum to spend a couple of hours in enjoying fine arts.

A once privately owned collection of artworks over a 400 year period to modern. You can get close and examine the techniques used, take photographs of your favourite works, or just admire them. You need plenty of time here but you can get food and...More

The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
