Balenciaga and Spanish Painting
Now on - Sep 22, 2019

Come and experience the world through the eyes of Cristóbal Balenciaga, one of the most admired and influential fashion designers of all time. Balenciaga studied the history of art and revived historic garments, reinterpreting them in a strikingly modern manner.

See paintings on loan from private Spanish collections and public museums, including the Museo Nacional del Prado and the museums of Fine Arts of Seville, Valencia and Bilbao. You can also see creations by Balenciaga, some of which have never been exhibited before.

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.

Great art museum! We bought our tickets online the morning we needed them and downloaded them to our phones. The entry was timed, and we were able to go in at the time we’d selected. The special Balenciaga exhibit was AMAZING, and the rest of the museum did not disappoint. Very well laid out and well curated, in both Spanish and English.
