The Carmen Thyssen Museum (Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga) is an art museum in the Spanish city Málaga. The main focus of the museum is 19th-century Spanish painting, predominantly Andalusian, based on the collection of Carmen Cervera, fifth wife of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Since 1992 the Thyssen family's art collection has been on display at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid. However, Carmen Thyssen has been an art collector in her own right since the 1980s, and her personal collection is shown separately. In 1999, she agreed to display many items from her collection in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum for a period of twelve years. Meanwhile, a home for her collection was sought in Málaga. This museum, a conversion of a sixteenth-century building, opened to the public on 24 March 2011.

I really enjoyed this exhibition, some of the paintings were truly breathtaking. If you are a fan of landscapes, go and enjoy the amazing works on offer. The temporary exhibition was also good, although for me Goya's works are disturbing and scary. The exhibition of Mary Blanchard and Juan Gris was also pleasing, especially if you enjoy cubism, there are some really fantastic works displayed.

I'm glad I went during the free Sunday entrance. I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much if I paid money to enter. You should visit, but without high expectations. Art is subjective to the audience and personally, I was impartial to the works featured in this museum. I much more preferred those showcased at the Centre Pompidou. There will be a wait outside when you attend on the free entrance Sundays, about a 15 minute wait for me. The museum is clean and bright.

Exhibit was phonenmal, after visiting the Picasso museum first I wasn't sure how another museum in Malaga could top that but you definitely don't want to miss out on this experience. Each installation in this gallery is incredibly detailed with such depth and colour, I felt as though they were actually photographs.

Lovely, well mounted exhibition. Nothing disappoints and must be cleanest exhibition house/shop in whole of Spain.

Beautiful collection of many mainly (for me before unknown) Spanish masters of the nineteenth century plus fin-de-siecle. Surely worth your visit!

It's good for people fond of landscape painting and know more about spainish painting. The food in the cafe is quite expensive.

It is a charming area. They made it very artistic. It is not only place where you can enjoy the collection of Carmen Thyssen. The building itself is typical of Malaga architecture. Sometimes different events take place there

Nice museum. Expect to spend about 40 minutes or more if you’d like to see modern part of the museum. Sometimes free admission available.
