  • While we loved the Prado, the Thyssen has a wonderful collection and is significantly less busy and made for a more relaxed experience. They even allow photos to be taken.

  • This is a real surprise. A huge array of paintings from famous and not so well known artists lie within. Well worth a visit

  • An unforgettable experience. The building is precious, right at the center of Madrid in a sunny day you can enjoy every corner of this place. The history and the art that hangs in the walls are priceless. The beauty of every painting is complemented with a great space, amazing stuff and soft lighting that will transport you straight to America in the 80’s or a canal in Venice, or maybe a garden where Monet will ensure you never want to leave. This is the best museum I have ever been, not only for the art but for how comfortable and easy is to move around. I paid £18 with £5 towards the audioguide. Worth every penny.
  • The Museum is for the most part a collection of old world classical European paintings. Not my cup of tea. A total bore. I prefer the Reina Sofia Museum with a wider array of older and modern painting exhibitions and artistic presentations. That being said, the Alex Katz modern art temporary exhibition was absolutely superb. I’d recommend visiting the museum only for this reason alone.
