Full description
The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza has offered visitors a unique survey of the history of art from the 13th to the late 20th centuries. Dürer, Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Manet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Kandinsky, Picasso, Hopper and Rothko are among the great masters of painting whose works fascinate and delight visitors. As if turning the pages of a book, all the principal movements of art present themselves in succession and all are represented through works of breathtaking quality. Among the collection of almost 1,000 works on display, visitors can pause in the Renaissance, linger in the Baroque, discover Expressionism or enter the world of the 20th-century avant-garde movements. The history of western art unfolds before our eyes in the galleries of the Palacio de Villahermosa, which was specifically remodelled by Rafael Moneo to house the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection. Of private origins, this international collection that now belongs to the Spanish nation introduces us to the remarkable tastes of its two principal creators: Baron Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (1875-1947) and his son, Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza (1921-2002). In contrast to the Spanish royal collections with their majestic works of art, a visit to this essentially private collection offers a delightfully intimate experience. In 2004 the Collection was joined by the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, consisting of more than 200 works on deposit with the Museum that complement the styles and genres already present in the Permanent Collection. Accessible, dynamic, ground-breaking, sustainable and with the highest standards of visitor services, the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza focuses on all sectors of the public, particularly young people; Temporary exhibitions, concerts, live music, workshops, film and theater together create a wide range of options aimed at all our visitors.

    If your in Madrid don’t skip this cheaper option for such a huge collection of Art. It’s not El Prado Scale but if your appreciate Art it is worth the trip. Overall it’s a more diverse collection and includes some more modern pieces on the ground floor and gets more impressive as you progress up the floors. The one Caravaggio exhibit is really cool and details the restoration process.

    This is the 2nd time we’ve visited this excellent museum, and it’s still absolutely wonderful. What a great collection of incredible artwork. The impressionist section is great! If you’re a museum buff or impressionist enthusiast, then do yourself a big fat favor and go see this beautiful museum. It’s excellent! Mobile ap tickets do need to be converted to a paper ticket. The priority access line for those converting mobile ap tickets moves very quickly.

    Well laid out art and full of some art world treasures

    As a solo traveler and non-Spanish speaker, I liked how art descriptions were detailed in both English and Spanish and they had a few notable artworks that you wouldn’t expect like a Rothko, Toulouse le trec, Georgia o keef , and monetize to name a few. Be sure and check to see if you want to see is not on exposition somewhere else. A good 3 hours is all you need to see everything and go down to the basement to see their latest exposition. You will not be disappointed. Lastly, you can take pictures and you can drink and take water but not around the artwork.
