Really beautiful museum that houses the personal collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza family. Incredibly, they really did have this vast an art collection that spans from early Christian icons to Rothko and everything in between. The map made it a bit difficult to find things as the layout isn't terribly logical. They also have special exhibitions and the one going on while I was there was so popular that the tickets were sold out.
For art book and design lovers, the gift shop is great with a huge variety of children's art books in Spanish and in English.Recommended for:

This is where you're going to recognize artists even if you aren't a connoisseur. This museum holds masterpieces by Monet, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Picasso, Lichtenstein, Renoir, Degas, Salvador Dali, and Jackson Pollack.Recommended for:

I live in Madrid since a couple of years and have visited all three museums of the Golden Triangle of Art (a couple of times) and love all three of them but the Thyssen-Bornemisza is my personal favorite because it has a bit of all art styles and is in chronological order. And it has the most impressionism paintings of all three mueums, which is my favorite style, and has a lot of interesting postimpressionism, expressionism and fauvism paintings; all styles I really enjoy.
For classic masterpieces from Europe (12th century to the early 19th century): Prado Museum.
For modern art (20th century); mostly surrealism and cubism (Dalí, Picasso, Miró): Reina Sofía Museum.Recommended for:

An eclectic collection of European artists with pieces from Van Eyck, Ruben to impressionists like Monet and Van Gogh to post modernists like Picasso. The museum is part of the Golden Triangle with the Prado and Museo Reina Sofia. All three museums are great, but if you have to leave one off your visit I would probably drop this one.Recommended for:

The Museo Thyssen is a random collection of artwork from throughout the ages that was collected by a wealthy family. It doesn't have much of a unifying theme but is instead a good lesson is art history. I did see one of the most beautiful Monet paintings of a sunset there.Recommended for:

Part of the Golden Triangle of Art, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza used to be a private collection. Nevertheless, the collection is impressive here. A little bit of everything from the European masters. They had a Chagall exhibit in addition to the normal exhibits but we didn't upgrade our pass for that. I'm ok though. Three museums on one ticket is a LOT to take in. We visited the Thyssen after spending hours at the Prado which happens to be right across the street. The Collection expands the centuries and is displayed mostly in order. We made the mistake of checking out the first floor before going upstairs and had our order all wrong. If you have the time, check it out because they do have worthwhile pieces ranging from artists like Picasso, Dali, Miro, Turner, El Greco, etc.Recommended for:

A very good collection from the Thyssen Bornemisza family. Particularly strong in Impressionist paintings which are not plentiful in Spain. The museum also has very good special exhibitions. The restaurant at the museum is also very good.Recommended for:

This is the museum I prefer in Madrid. It is not so big and contain a very fine collection of paintings, that reflect the tastes of the collector who collected all these pieces during a lifetime. Apart from the steady collection there are also temporary expositions.
