Overview

Highlights

  • Explore one of the most extraordinary – and largest – private art collections in the entire world
  • 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

Description

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. Themed audio tours 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 Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza. It's one of the most extraordinary private art collections in the world, and also one of the largest.

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 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.

You can also explore the permanent collection from the perspective of Miguel de Cervantes's masterpiece with The Museum as a Reflection of El Quixote Tour, or enjoy a contemporary reading of concepts like gender, identity, and sexual orientation with the Inclusive Love Tour.

Insider tip

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