Das Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza ist ein Kunstmuseum im Palacio de Villahermosa in Madrid, unweit des Prado gelegen. Ausgestellt werden Gemälde, die von Heinrich Thyssen und vor allem von dessen Sohn Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon zusammengetragen worden sind.
Loved the museum. So many great works of art and many vibrant paintings. I enjoy the Prado but the selection of art as a whole made the Thyssen much more enjoyable. For such a young museum the collection is fairly extensive. Even though I am not a huge fan of Picasso I did enjoy the presentation of the temporary exhibit. The museum had a nice flow and rooms were numbered as lettered to ensure no masterpiece was left unseen.
Very easy to spend hours in here. There's a great mixture of art styles which are displayed nicely. The gift shop has some nice things instead of the usual gift shop junk.
One of the best museums if not the best in Madrid, for those who like the expressionists, futurists, Rothko.... Great modern art collection and world class temporary exhibitions. There's lots of classic stuff too, religious icons, Flanders, Renaissance
This is the best museum in Madrid. Great collection of impressionists and often very good special exhibits with limited amount of visitors. The restaurant is nicely build with lots of fashionable art lovers. Service is Spanish style: very blunt and short of words, like not a greeting and polite asking what you would like but only a HOLA and than staring in your face. I experience that a lot in Madrid; not nice.
A real treasure trove. The sorolla exhibition was gorgeous And the modern section on the ground floor was v refreshing after the upper floors. A journey through the ages of art.
Great museum. It is well kept, renovated, has the necessary facilities and has different artworks to not bore anyone. The museum admission is cheap, but you can get in for free on Mondays! The bar is nice and the service is quick. The museum itself is very nice and easy to get around it (not a maze like prado). Artworks had explanations, titles and art types, and very few of them were out for renovation.
A very high-quality experience... Too much to take in one afternoon. The paintings although impressive are not on the level of the paintings at The Prado, which is quite near. There is definitely a lack of Creature Comforts at the Thyssen. There isn't a good place to Simply have a cup of tea. There is one Cafe with relatively high-priced entree items and a wait staff that really seem to have an attitude. Maybe they're overworked but they were positively unpleasant and remote. I would be afraid to just sit down there and have coffee and tea only; in the late afternoon when we were there everyone was eating. (I contrast this with the Prado where there is a very nice cafe with two sections: a line for just coffee end drinks and sweets and another line for a salad and other kinds of hot food.) The Places to sit in the galleries are hard xold stone and the building itself is a little chilly on a chilly day. Also the cafe is separate from the museum. When I came back in they wanted to see my ticket after eating. But the art collection is beautiful and the flowers, Camellias, were In bloom outside the front of the museum. This Museum really shows the extent to which a private collector with great wealth can amass great art. At The Prado much of this great art was collected by Kings and Queens and the and the Spanish government.
Very pretty museum! Small, but the art packs a punch. Laid out very well. Free on Mondays until 4. Don’t skip over this place!
Love this museum. Great paintings all over the place and currently exhibiting an awesome exhibition of Sorolla which I truly enjoyed. If you like impressionism you'll like it here
Hugely varied collection of paintings for the 1500s to the 1970s. Almost every famous artist is represented. Takes about 3 hours to see the main collection. They limit the number of people at busy times so it doesn't get crowded.
I was lucky enough to visit when the admission was free. I thought that I would have to pay €5 or more and it would have been well worth it. There is so much to see that if you're interested in all works of art, you'll need a day here. If you are selective (say impressionism or cubism), then 2 to 4 hours may be enough. Plenty of staff to help, every exhibit has a description (including English) and you can take as many photographs and videos as you want (no flash/spot).
I really like this museum. It has a large selection of modern art pieces. Expressionists, impressionists it has it all. Probably not as big as Prado or RS but I found this to be a benefit, as it's more manageable to see everything in a couple of hours. On Mondays you can just wander in with no tickets or queueing. Look out for the Kandinsky sketches and the Dali's
Top world class..even more interesting vs. Prado! Lay out is very well done. From 1330 on third floor to 1990 on first floor. All big dutch painters..Rembrandt degas..Jongkind...was mind opening! Must see on bucket list.
A beautiful museum. Lots of different artists work are portrayed here and it is a very large so expect to spend a bit of time here. The museum is a part of the Golden triangle and is closely located to the Prado museum.
I loved this museum. The collection is fantastic and they really have good temporary exhibitions as well. They have a really wide variety of pieces from different periods. The top floor being the oldest pieces and getting younger as you move down. Definitely plan a good 2 hours, I spent well over that but it was definitely worth it.
The best art collection in the city, by far. Well organized exposition path. Great artists' works live in here and you should see them in your next stop in Madrid.
This museum as a nice exhibition that takes you through various centuries. The collection contains work by painters from all over the globe. Free admission on Monday (sponsored by MasterCard). audio guides in multiple languages are available and cost 5 euro. They are worth renting.
I really enjoyed the art here. Pictured are some of my favorites. They do not allow tripods for cameras, but you can check them in if needed.
