  • This museum houses one of the world's most important private collections. All pieces are the property of Mrs Thyssen and lent for a period of time.

  • At 1 minute walking from Plaza de Las Flores, in the heart of the town centre. Excellent Musseum. It is worth visiting!.
  • Great exhibitions and permanent collection and the building is a beautiful one, visit the shop with a great collection of art books and assorted gadgets
  • The permanent collection is beautiful and the QR codes to scan near the paintings provide additional information about the artist and the piece.
  • Very nice collection of works from a variety of artists and styles. It is also worth coming again every few months to see the temporary exhibitions. Tickets can be bought separately for the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
  • Good collection lacking true master works
