  • See a crucial part of the 'Golden Triangle of Art', along with the Prado and the Reina Sofia
  • Take a themed audio tour to learn about topics like jewelry, food, fashion, inclusivity, and sustainability

Make time in Madrid to see this spectacular collection of art, and then silently thank German-Hungarian industrialist Baron Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon for making art collecting his hobby. Add a themed audio tour to your Thyssen Museum tickets and make this a rare and informative artistic delight!

The name may be hard to pronounce, but don't let that stop you from making your way to the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum - or Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza if you want to say like the locals. It's one of the most extraordinary private art collections in the world, and also one of the largest. Your Thyssen Museum tickets are worth every penny!

Many of the big names are here, sometimes represented by just one painting. Start on the top floor and work your way down. Travel through history, from medieval art on the second floor through Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, and Expressionism on the first floor, all the way to Pop Art and the avant-garde on the ground floor.

Book a themed audio tour

The Thyssen Museum's excellent audio tours mean you can choose what you learn about as you explore the building. Uncover the hidden history of gems and jewelry on the 'Gems Tour', or learn the role fashion has played in aristocracy and royalty with the 'Fashion Tour'. There are lots of audio guides to choose from!

Insider tip

Las Terrazas del Thyssen, conveniently located right by the museum, is a great spot for an early evening cocktail!

Received tickets very efficiently. Exhibition location wasn't clear, but asked at info desk. Timed tickets good, but despite the timings the exhibition halls were busy.
