  • Madrid is a great metropolis and the Paseo del Prado is the great cultural vein which concentrated various museums. It is remarkable to say, that the Thyssen-Bornemiza, although it is facing one of the most famous and visited, never lose relevance or presence. Let's start with the exposed cultural heritage, a rich private collection that is broken down chronologically cured of sober and simple, so that the viewer can decide which picture is which most interested and thus appreciate the art of so many centuries, we continue with the building itself, an exceptional restoration that preserves the original shape and renews the spaces to have the appropriate distribution of exhibition areas Let's end with enlargement and not less interesting area of the cafeteria, which is nicely integrated into the original buildings, with garden and invites the public to end the visit with a delicious coffee. Not to be missed.

  • One of the three major museums in Madrid, and a visit highly recommended by the large amount of artistic work exhibited, ranging from medieval times to the contemporary, allowing you to see the artistic evolution while some really important works dealt with.

  • I think they had too many landscape impressionist paintings. Everything started to look the same after awhile. But their key pieces are worth seeing. I got more out of the temporary exhibits. The building itself is beautiful with bright-colored (yellow and flamingo) interior walls. And sitting outside in the courtyard is quite enjoyable.
  • Beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our family visit. We like to keep things brisk with kids in tow, but still our 9-year-old happily managed three hours here (albeit with a quick drink break). For families and casual admirers of art, I'd recommend this as top of your list - over the Prado - if you only want to do one museum in Madrid.
  • One of the few art museums where they make it very easy for visitors to "follow the chronology" of the art. I liked it as much as Prado
  • Beautiful place. We'll worth a visit if you appreciate fine art. Free in on Monday though..
  • One of the three big Madrid's art galleries you probably would love to visit. I recommend you to start at the 2nd floor. I began my visit on a ground floor but at the end of the exhibition there was an exit and shop and I had to go through whole exhibition on a ground floor again... Also my bad I purchased an audioguide for €5. In the end I didn't use it at all. It is just not necessary, you will be overwhelmed by the number of the paintings that you will be happy to see all of them, you will not have time and mood to spend another time to listen to a boring audioguide.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
