Loved the museum. So many great works of art and many vibrant paintings. I enjoy the Prado but the selection of art as a whole made the Thyssen much more enjoyable. For such a young museum the collection is fairly extensive. Even though I am not a huge fan of Picasso I did enjoy the presentation of the temporary exhibit. The museum had a nice flow and rooms were numbered as lettered to ensure no masterpiece was left unseen.

This is the best museum in Madrid. Great collection of impressionists and often very good special exhibits with limited amount of visitors. The restaurant is nicely build with lots of fashionable art lovers. Service is Spanish style: very blunt and short of words, like not a greeting and polite asking what you would like but only a HOLA and than staring in your face. I experience that a lot in Madrid; not nice.

Amazing museum covering everything from the middle age to modern art. Their impressionists collection is particularly good. Start at the top and go down the stairs for a trip through times.
The Picasso/Toulouse-Lautrec temporary exhibition was tastefully curated with fascinating pieces of art.
After your visit, go grab a glass of wine on the terrace just outside.

In my opinion this is the best art museum in Madrid, as it has the most breadth. It's also organized fairly well, and easy to find the works that one wants. It's a fair price for what it has, and the layout means there are no crowds, making it easy to see the paintings. There are works by so many great masters here that it would be impossible to list them all.

Fabulous museum with a very well done permanent exhibit. Periodic special exhibitions. We saw the Picasso- Lautrec comparative. Well laid out and presented. Exceptional printed and audio guides. Plan on 2 - 3 hours for the complete permanent exhibits. Friendly helpful staff.
