  • One of the most extraordinary - and largest - private art collections in the world
  • Part of the 'Golden Triangle of Art', along with the Prado and the Reina Sofia
  • Take an exciting themed audio tour to learn about fashion or jewellery through the ages as you explore!

Make time in Madrid to see a 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 arty treat!

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 - and largest - private art collections in the world.

Many of the big names are here, sometimes represented by just one painting. Start 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 avant-garde on the ground floor.

Book a themed audio tour

New, themed audio tours mean you can choose what you learn about as you explore the museum. See the permanent collection with the history of gems and jewelry explained 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.

It was good not brilliant. Better than Prado where we got all cherubbed out.

This museum is a treasure trove of masterpieces spanning centuries. The staff and the audio guides are excellent (and offer a variety of information and suggestions from family visit to full tour) and the space is enjoyable. Purchasing our tickets online through Tiqets allowed us to skip the line and zip right in.

Very swift entry. Staff honoured the 'best the queue' even when (gently) challenged by other patrons.

It is an amazing museum! The collection is really impressive! A few paintings (van Gogh, Monet, Sisley) are taken for restauration reasons, which is a bit disappointing, but it is an amazing gallery nontheless. Definetly worth the visit!
