  • An unforgettable evening, reviving lives and stories passed through the centuries. A true gem of collection. One loses track of time.

  • When in Madrid, you can't not go to the Prado, the Reina Sofia (for Guernica), and this museum. Well, as I look at the negative reviews, if you don't like art, don't go. If you insist everyone in a fo...  more »
  • Never can tell that you've seen by full. The permanent collection and the particular of Carmen Thyssen are all a recital of history and sensitivity. The itinerant Renoir wonderful without being, nor by far, the best of the author's. It is worth always return

  • Madrid obviously has many great art museums, but this may be my favorite. With a good, if not comprehensive, collection stretching from the 13th century until the end of the 20th, this museum has something that will speak to anyone remotely interested in the tradition of Western Art. All of the temporary exhibitions that I've seen here are well curated, thoughtful, and engaging. This museum definitely deserves your time and attention!
  • I didnt know the museum, but it is at least as beautifull as de Prado. We visited the museum when they had the Monet exhibition. That was really impressive.
  • Regardless of what type of art enthusiast you are, chances are you will come away from this well-curated museum happy to note some new favourite pieces. This museum houses a vast collection of art from classic to modern artists, and arranged in a way that allows you to easily progress through the levels of the museum and not feel like you might have missed anything special (lots of room between paintings and for walking about). A brief but genuine appreciation of all the works in this museum will probably have you walking for about 2 hours. There is a coat and bag counter where all things must be placed, for no cost. Photography is allowed, but without flash.
  • Good paintings from famous artists, but a lot of repeats. Earliest paintings from around 1300-1400 ad. Nothing too big, but the self portrait of Rembrandt was nice as well as the portrait of Henry the VIII. A lot less crowded than Prado for a cheaper price.
  • A really big and beautiful museum! I would highly recommend to go to the museum if you are in Madrid and want to have some 'culture time'.
