This was a last minute decision as we had already visitied many Galleries/Museums. I am so glad we went , the art Was beautifully displayed in a purpose built building which is large, light and airy.

With not enough time to deal with the line to the Prado, we opted to go to the Thyssen. Only recommend that if it is possible, try not to go here or any other museum in Madrid on the "free" day only because the crowds...More

Simply brilliant gallery, originally a private collection, but now gifted to Spain. A chronological run-through the history of art , from the 13th century, to today. Brilliant audio-guide leads you through the fascinating development of styles, explaining things superbly. Over three floors, this is a...More

While many people have heard of the nearby Prado, this less-extensive gallery proved a welcome surprise for me. The collection here seems more modern and brighter, including a good selection of Impressionist works - and during our visit an interesting Monet & Boudin exhibition.

We were lucky to be visiting Madrid during a public holiday and entry to the museum was free. We spent 3 hours but could well have spent a whole day in this beautiful museum

Beautiful surroundings and all of the masters on the walls. Close to Prado and Retiro. Nice architecture and both classics and pop art.

The museum covers all periods from the middle ages to the 20th century. Obviously the most interesting is the latter as the collection has important works by most of the major artists of the last 100 years.

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
